    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Success Academy Charter Schools (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Asked the usual questions about experience and educational philosophy, then do a demo lesson. During the demo, make sure the students do not move an inch unless you tell them too. Classroom management seems to be more important than your actual teaching.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Success Academy Charter Schools (New York, NY) in March 2014.

    Interview

    I was referred by a friend who worked at Success Already, so I can't speak to applying through the website. I spoke with a recruiter briefly on the phone, who invited me to an in person interview.

    I participated in a group interview with about 10 other teachers interviewing for science and lead teacher roles.

    We each taught a 10 minute literacy demonstration lesson provided for us by Success, for which we selected our own book. We interviewed with a recruiter and a school leader, and then debriefed our demonstration lessons in small group, where we received and gave feedback from school leaders and other teachers interviewing. Feedback was around both management and expectations, as well as instruction.

    Interview Questions

    • Questions asked us about how we collect and assess data, our teaching philosophy, and our commitment to the dual mission at Success.   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Success Academy Charter Schools (New York, NY) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Intense interview process. The organization seeks to learn more about you and the the way you handle pressure. Be prepared to think through situations. It's a group interview and a lot of things will be simulated as if you are at a school working with a team of teachers.
