    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at May Institute.

    Interview

    Contacted by a recruiter for 5-10 minute interview/information session. Was invited back for an interview. Started out as a group for about 10 minutes and after a brief intro we were given about 1 hour of observation time in classrooms. After this I met with a hiring manager who was able to answer my questions and tell me more about the process. A few days later I was contacted again and a few weeks after background checks I was in orientation.

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at May Institute (Randolph, MA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    They checked to see if you were breathing then dropped you in a classroom for an hour to observe. After the interview, you meet with somebody to go over the day to day responsibilities then asked if you can handle it. They are clear that people are injured on a regular basis from student behaviors. If you accept a job here, you will most likely be placed in the classroom you observed in.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at May Institute (Woburn, MA) in June 2015.

    The interview process opened the door to see the classrooms with the students going about their days. The first hour of the interview involved going to each of the four classrooms, talking with the lead teachers in each classroom, meeting the students, and getting to ask any questions about the classroom. The next part of the interview was with the Educational Director where she discussed more in depth about the position and what the job involved.
