    I have been working at Explore Schools full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    As an employee of Explore Schools for over 5 years, I can honestly say I've never worked in a more supportive, dedicated work environment.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Explore Schools (New York, NY) in May 2019.

    Interview

    TOTAL WASTE OF TIME! Received a email 24 hours after applying to the position for a phone interview the following day. HR rep called me 10 minutes late. Asked a series of basic interview questions. Informed me that the next steps would consist of an at home excel exercise. Then if that goes well, an in school interview with a the operations team. Phone interview lasted about an hour. HR rep said they would contact me in a week. I reached out a week later to only get an automated rejection email an hour after I sent an email.
