    Substitute Teacher Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Teachers on Reserve (San Francisco, CA) in October 2011.

    Interview

    The initial application was unreasonably long. One part of the application included 11 short and long answer questions. It took almost three full months to hear back from this company. At that time I was given much more detail about the company. They pay substantially less then school districts for subbing. The average pay is 15 per hour. Pay is dependent on grade level and whether the school requires a credential. Preschool pay is $11. Unless you live in the LA area interviews are done by Skype and are said to last an hour. Once you do all of this you also have to pay for a full background check (about $80) even if you have undergone one recently or have a California license. You must also attend an orientation. You must agree to be available at least two days a week. Moreover, you must agree to answer your phone from 6am to 9am and be able to be out the door in less than half an hour.

    Reasons for Declining

    It is insulting what they pay for fully licensed teachers. Their pay would negatively impact my unemployment. Working for them would drop my already low income.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Teachers on Reserve (San Francisco, CA) in February 2019.

    Interview

    Pretty casual skype interview. Gave a lot information about the process and how the substitute assignments would work as everything is online or over the phone.
    Asked about how teaching fits in your current life and goals for the future. The interviewer also asked a few "what if" scenarios. Offered the position at the end of the interview.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Teachers on Reserve (Glendale, CA) in October 2013.

    Interview

    I filled out an application online. There were several questions in the application that asked about classroom management, problems that subs may have, and scenario questions. Once I submitted my application, I got an email soon after to set up an interview. I interviewed with Skye McKenzie, who was very personable and friendly. The interview went well, and I was asked to be a substitute right after my interview.

    Interview Questions

    • The most difficult question for me was what is the most important thing that a substitute does. I hadn't really thought about the question before the interview, so I was not really prepared to answer it.   1 Answer

    Negative Experience

    Interview

    Rude, belittling, unprofessional, and a general waste of my time. The interviewer began by criticizing my interests, little details about my life, and small complications with the internet. She ended by saying to me, and this is a direct quote, "I know you just graduated from college, but you need to figure out exactly what it means to be successful in the world." She pretty much intimidated me into thinking that TOR is a bigger, better opportunity for me.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Teachers on Reserve (North Hollywood, CA) in August 2012.

    Interview

    One time the interview was one on one. Another time the interview was of multiple candidates; I think it depends on how many applicants respond. They asked a few basic questions and determined my professionalism and motivation for applying and told me immediately I was accepted. I had answered a newspaper ad which I rarely do, and had shown up about 10-15 minutes early. I walked in professionally dressed and with a folder containing my paperwork, consisting of transcripts, my credentials. and more than one recommendation. They appeared to be as prepared to receive candidates as I was prepared to be interviewed

    Interview Questions

    • What in your background qualifies you to be a substitute teacher? Another question was what was your most difficult situation and how did you over come the difficulty? I can't really remember most of the questions, I think because none of them were very difficult   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    There was none. I was hired on the spot.
