Application

I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Teach for America (Los Angeles, CA) in May 2015

The interview process was pretty straight-forward. I did a virtual interview. TFA kept me informed throughout the entire process, letting me know when and how to come prepared. After the virtual screening, I completed and submitted a case-study. They got to me a few days later with my offer which included the salary and benefits package.

Positive Experience
Difficult Interview
Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Teach for America (Philadelphia, PA) in Apr 2011

Interview

Applying for a staff position required me to submit an online application, upload my resume and a cover letter, that took approximately 1.5 hours. The great thing about this company is they get back to you no matter what, in the exact time frame they tell you (no waiting around), and their process is quick.

Interview Questions
  • They asked me both questions about my experiences and behavioral based questions. Some questions: -What goals did you have for your students in the classroom? How did you reach those results? -What about our core values resonates with you? -Tell me about a time when you hit a lot of failures, how did you work through those?
