Got invited to a second interview about 2 weeks after the first one where I answered more questions and did another activity. I got a verbal offer later that week after the second interview. The whole process from application to offer took about 7 weeks.

Interview

Very thorough. Long process with many steps. Worked with a number of recruitment managers. Still waiting to hear decision. Would recommend applying to a friend. Sometimes the video questions were a bit redundant. Two of the videos essentially asked the same question.

I interviewed at Teach for America

Interview

Someone from the organization reached out about RM role. 3 step process- initial application/essays- why do you want to do this, etc, then data analysis and video self, then in-person interview consisting of 1:1, data analysis, and a role play. Everyone is affirming, kind, and SUPER politically correct. Organization seeks to really emphasize core values/RM culture pillars.

Interview Questions
  • How do you live out diversity? Tell about a time you had a ton to do and not enough time? How'd you stay organized/determine what to do?

Difficult Interview
Application

I applied online. The process took 4 months. I interviewed at Teach for America (Saint Louis, MO) in Mar 2015

Interview

There was an in-depth application that took a few hours to complete, followed by a phone interview, followed by an in-person interview in a central location with all other candidates who made it to that stage. I was there from 7:15 a.m. to 5:45 p.m. and all transportation and lodging was provided by Teach For America. From the point the application was due to the notification about the job offer, the process was 4 months long. Between the application and the phone interview, there was an online activity that had to be completed. The phone interview was a fairly standard 30-minute interview. After the phone interview, you get invited to the in-person interview day. The interview day consisted of 3 separate interviews for me personally; however, I met people who had 2 and people who had 5. There was a lot of down time in between each interview, and there was a lunch panel to answer questions at the location. The interviews consisted of role plays and hypotheticals, there was a prioritizing activity and then your standard interview questions.

Interview Questions
  • Lots of role plays and hypotheticals. Do your research about the benefits of being a corps member for Teach For America are for different people (i.e., a person interested in engineering vs. a person interested in political science).

Interview

submitted an application with essays online for first process, had phone interview and then was asked to fly to MO for all-day interview. the all-day interview was quite intense, more so than we were let onto, and with a flurry of people to speak to. originally was turned down and not offered the position (in strange phrasing as well, noting that my skills did not match the ones they were looking for), and a month later received an email with an offer to join the recruitment team.

Lots of activities and different rounds of interviews with different people. This is a great chance to really get to know the nature of the work though and to get a thorough understanding of the organization's staff culture, especially since most candidates hired into this role come out of the Corps.
