    I worked at Challenger School part-time

    Pros

    The overall message of "I am responsible for myself," and "Live life with integrity," are awesome lessons for our youth. It was fun teaching kids who were there to learn.

    Cons

    Management sometimes forget about the part timers since we aren't there all the time. I didn't really mind this so much, but others might.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure your message is clear across the board. Some managers had contradicting views on subjects so it was difficult to figure out which way to take a problem.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Challenger School (Austin, TX).

    Interview

    Took two written assessments (one was timed and the other wasn't). Then had discussions with directors/headmasters. Gave a sample lesson to a class while being observed and had more interviewing afterward.
