Pros

We truly work with wonderful people and our leadership does a great job of recognizing our hard work.

Cons

The pay could be higher. It is probably in line with a brick and mortar, but it is challenging work.

  1. Teacher Interview

    Easy Interview
    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Connections Academy (United States) in Jul 2022

    Interview

    The initial "interview" was 10 questions with timed recorded answers. The questions were generic teacher questions, not specific to the teaching position.

    The next interview was with the school leaders and their questions were tailored to the position's needs.
    Interview

    How does your experience make you a good candidate for this position? How would students describe you? What is a challenge you faced when teaching and how did you overcome it? How do you collaborate with co-workers?
