    Central Services Teacher Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pittsburgh, PA

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at EdisonLearning (Pittsburgh, PA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    The Student Success Director accommodated me after I showed up as a "walk in," just a day after submitting my application. I wanted to skirt around the HR process and show initiative. The director allowed me to express my qualifications for about 45 minutes. I was told that I had a made a good impression, and would be recommended for a follow up interview, and was already a few steps ahead.

    I received a call just 2 days later, and spoke with their HR department. They asked about salary requirements. There was zero wiggle room. I set up an interview with the director and department chair for just a few days after the phone call.

    I was interviewed for an hour and answered questions about workflow and efficiency, was given (1) subject related question, and then responded in writing to 3-4 pages of typical student questions, with which I had to either rewrite the question or respond with feedback to a student's sample answer.

    I was now allowed to ask any questions I had. I was not told when I would be contacted in the future, and I failed to ask. I waited a few days before I called HR and asked where they were in the interviewing process. I was told that they were still interviewing, were in a rush, but wanted to find the right candidate. I wrote a follow-up email to the director, thanking him for accommodating me the first time, and also for the second, formal interview.

    I was sent an email on a Saturday afternoon that another candidate had been selected, and that it was likely because of the large "candidate pool."

    The end.

    Can a Career Tech Ed. School Be Too Popular?

    On a chilly spring morning, 18 teenagers clamber aboard a 65-foot research vessel and become marine scientists. In big blue nets, they haul in an array of sparkling, spiny, wiggly sea creatures. They identify each one, carefully measure it, and toss it back into the water.
