    Lead Teacher Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Success Academy Charter Schools (New York, NY) in June 2020.

    Interview

    Ridiculous, doesn’t seem like they value teachers who have professional experience and training ...they want “YES” people. They want people who will just follow along their downward spiraling pattern. You can forget about what you know or what you’ve in STATE examined to know. Strange (IQ) test was given not sure if “everyone” was required to take a timed puzzle/Q&A/ personality test that canNOT determine how well I teach. This is probably a huge detriment for their organization as a way to “sift” through and find the robots they want and need.

    Interview

    ideo interview through Bluejeans program // I had to write a central idea with two pieces of evidence on a short poem beforehand, watch 4 videos, and plan how I would launch a lesson on independent reading // My interviewer walked me through all the steps and asked questions about my noticing on the videos... had me perform the launch and listen to feedback about the launch... she didn't talk about my short poem answer so I guess that was just a competency check

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Success Academy Charter Schools (New York, NY) in June 2020.

    Interview

    It never happened. They had to reschedule me due to the protests and only notified me about 8pm the night before and said that my interview was moved to the next day. I had emailed them and called them about my schedule and how I'm an essential worker and could not possibly take off work of such short notice. Talk about unprofessional, when I emailed and call it was right after I had heard from them and the person in charge of the interviewing process emailed me back a whole 5 DAYS LATER saying that they were no longer looking to fill any positions for the time being and that if they wanted me they will keep my info in their system.

    Whatever you do, don't apply. They are clearly hungry and struggling and I know for us recent education grads we're looking and desperate for anything but with these reviews plus the teacher turnover, it is really worth your mental health? I think I dodged a bullet with this one.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at Success Academy Charter Schools (New York, NY) in May 2020.

    Interview

    I applied online through WayUp and had an initial phone screening as well as a short online assessment (things like pattern recognition) with them before being passed off to the Success Academy recruiter. They sent me videos of Success Academy teachers at work to prepare for the interview. I was also asked to prepare a 2 minute classroom role-play.

    The interview itself was almost an hour, but was relaxed. The role-play was one-sided (the recruiter told me she would not be engaging because she had to take notes), so I was asked to pretend a student acted up at some point during the role-play and address it accordingly. Afterwards she asked how I thought I did and what I could have done differently. I got an phone call with an offer a a couple days later.

    The total process was long, but that includes the WayUp back-and-forth, as well as a long wait for the interview (they were pretty booked, but I was given options within a couple weeks). I also had a week's delay due to an error with WayUp's online assessment.
