    Director, Leadership Interview

    Interview

    Phone call and In Person meeting

    Phone call from London was great. The HR Manager is very polite and he asks the right questions, relevant to the job that you have applied.

    Once you clear that interview and invited for the next round of interview with the Hiring Manager, you start getting a shock of your life.

    I had applied for Director in Leadership Position. So I was expecting some high-level questions related to that position. As I was interviewed, I realized, my position was more of an Executive Assistant to the CEO

    Nothing wrong being an Executive Assistant, but be clear about that in the job description. When I was asked "How will you write an email to a partner?" I almost fainted. Seriously!! Ask me some tough questions...!!!

    I think my shocked expression could not convince them I could be a good Executive Assistant, and I was never called, which I never bothered to follow up also...

    Did not get a good vibe about the organization. It looked like everything revolves around the CEO!!

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Teach For All in October 2015.

    Interview

    It was a lengthy process (2 months) from the time I first applied to the time I heard back via phone that I did not get the position. The interviews consisted of 1 phone interview, an in-person interview, a skills exercise, and a skype interview with multiple people to review the skills test. I also had a couple informal "phone conversations" with employees in between rounds, which I treated as additional "interviews." The HR director was great and incredibly responsive and helpful throughout the entire process. Each person I met was smart and generally friendly, and I felt comfortable talking with them during the process. The interview questions were not very hard-- they were more along the lines of "Why this position?" "Walk me through how you organize your projects and manage your time," and they also asked specific questions about my past roles. Make sure you highlight specific examples of how your past experience will help you do well in the job. The skills test provides you with real examples of the kind of work you will do. My advice would be: treat the assignments not only as a way for you to "prove" your skills, but also to see if you would like the job in general. If anything, it is important to keep in mind that interviewing with Teach for All will most likely be a very detailed and long process. Candidates could potential go through up to 5-6 different "formal" interviews including a skills test before hearing back.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter via Linkedin, and we had a very productive informational interview! Then, it was the same person with whom I spoke for my official interview. It was very straightforward - questions about my experience, my interest in the job, and the opportunity for me to learn more about the position. I did not move forward, and I would have felt comfortable asking for feedback if I'd wanted

    • The position was a step up in title but turned out to be very similar to what I'm doing now. I was asked about why I would want to make a lateral move, and I didn't have a very good answer.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Teach For All (Washington, DC) in May 2014.

    Interview

    I applied online after finding TFAll on Idealist. I submitted my cover letter and resume, and then received an email from a would-be supervisor for a phone interview. We had a usual informational phone interview which also gauged my interest in education and international affairs. After this interview, I received an email with instructions for a skills assessment, which was timed. It was sent to me, I finished it in the allotted time, and then I received a phone call when time was up to review the exercise. After this, I had one more short phone interview, and then I was offered the internship.

    Three steps:
    -Informational screening intervew
    -Task-related timed assignment
    -Final Interview

    Director, Data & Management Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Teach For All.

    Interview

    I interviewed by phone with the human resources screener. Our phone connection wasn't good and he asked me to call him back in London. It really caught me off guard as I've never had an interviewer ask that I call long distance. I didn't get an additional interview and the interviewer didn't bother to send a rejection note.

    Fellow Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Teach For All.

    Interview

    I applied for the fellowship position through the teachformalaysia.org website. I was placed through 3 rounds of interview (not including the application process which is very lengthy). The three rounds included a phone interview, a critical thinking web assessment and a whole day interview.

    The whole day interview is definitely the hardest. It is where you gather at an assessment centre and you'll be required to teach on a subject for a period of time. Then it is the final interview.
