Difficult Interview

Application

The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at Teach for America in July 2015.

Interview

It was a lengthy process involving a phone screen, a written project, and two stages of phone interviews. Interviews were a challenging mix of questions, including both standard behavioral questions (e.g. "Tell me about a time when you experienced conflict at work...") and case-style questions about how I would approach a specific project I might be asked to complete in the role. But everyone I communicated with was extremely professional, courteous, responsive, and well-organized. It was clear they were putting thought and effort into the process and committed to selecting the best candidate.

Although I did not ultimately receive an offer, the hiring manager told me it was a very difficult decision, provided feedback and encouraged me to apply for similar roles with the organization in the future. I left feeling that the time and effort I had put into the process had been valued, and that I had learned quite a bit by engaging in it.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Teach for America.

    Interview

    Process began with a 30 minute phone interview to assess whether there was a culture fit.

    Then was given a round of exercises, followed by a call to discuss the exercises, and a couple behavioral questions.

    Couple more rounds of phone interviews, followed by another round of exercises. I don't think this is common, but it can happen.
