    Art Teacher Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Briarwood, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at SCO Family of Services (Briarwood, NY) in September 2015.

    Interview

    The principal interviewed me on phone, then contacted me a second time for the same interview. I came for interview, was showed campus and art room then sat in a room and helped students in a TA capacity. Then had a panel interview and was asked to do demo next day. This process was almost two entire days. When following up with principal a month later to see if she had reached a decision, she was vague and told me that she was asking the children who they liked the best. Her assistant followed up with some weird questions. It took them a long time to follow up with my references, I had to give assistant phone numbers to call after filling out on line.
