    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Success Academy Charter Schools (New York, NY) in September 2017.

    Interview

    You go through 3 screenings. They ask you questions about who you are. Your interests. Skills that you are able to do. I honestly do not remember the whole process entirely. However, just be your true self and go into the interview with an open mind and love to teaching, learning and kids!

    Community Relations Coordinator Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Success Academy Charter Schools (New York, NY) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Introduction, 4 rounds of interviews, and a survey. Round 1 was focused on the case study. Round 2 was focused on "why Success". Round 3 was focused on personal/professional short comings. Round 4 was focused on client/coworker relationships.

    You need to come in with negative experiences you've had in the work place. Do not waste time thinking you will discuss your strengths and accomplishments. If you've had a lucky break in your past professional life, I suggest making stories up.

    Overall, there was a looming negative vibe, especially in the interview about your weaknesses and shortcomings. They did not try to sell their brand at all.

    Following the interview, I had already decided that the Success culture was not for me, and would have declined an offer anyway.

    Dont be cocky, and don't try to show that you are a near perfect employee. They don't buy it and don't want it. Even if it's true.

    Lastly, the way that they dealt with notifying me about candidacy was handled extremely unprofessionally.

    Interview Questions

    • Why Success - why do you identify with our mission? How did you find out about us? How will we help you with your professional goals?   Answer Question

    Community Relations Coordinator Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Success Academy Charter Schools (New York, NY) in November 2017.

    Interview

    Phone screening, followed by a group interview at the main office, followed by a Skype interview. The process took about three months, and I had to follow up several times after the final interview to see if they were still interested. They did not explain why they did not extend an offer, which I found disappointing after such a long and intense interview process.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Success Academy Charter Schools (New York, NY) in April 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process took 5 weeks from the date of submitting the application to getting an offer. There are two steps the first interview requiring a presentation of a case study previously given to you to prepare. On the interview day you are given 25 minutes to prepare the case study (mine was to plan and budget a road trip from New York to Chicago). After presenting with three other individuals two traditional Q&A interviews are done and that's it. I had to wait three weeks before I was called for a second interview at one of the schools at that point I met with the principle and head of the operations team for a Q&A interview and I got an offer the next day.
