    Assistant Teacher Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Stafford, VA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Minnieland (Stafford, VA) in September 2017.

    Interview

    The director and assistant director of the North Stafford location are super sweet and couldn't be more helpful and honest with me. I came in a filled out some forms, then I went into the directors office and she asked me questions based off the answers I put on the form, like what I did at each of my previous jobs, what I was doing now, who my references were, etc. Then asked me role play, I guess, as the teacher (I am an assistant teacher there now) and show her how I would introduce an activity. Afterwards we discussed pay and she was completely honest with me and described to me their tier system for pay. This was super refreshing because there has been other jobs I've worked at that didn't tell me how much I would be making, or dodged the question, or made it out sound like I was getting what I asked for, but she was very honest. When we were done she told me to let my references know they would be calling and based on what they said i would hear back by Wednesday, (I interviewed on a Friday) but I ended up getting a call back the Monday before. :)
