    I have been working at Magic Ears part-time (Less than a year)


    They are so flexible and they really care for their teachers. I also love their training. The platform we use to teach is so fun and engaging.


    Waking up early but for doing what I love and good pay, it’s not even that bad

    ESL Teacher Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Magic Ears (San Francisco, CA) in February 2018.


    Interview consists of a 5 minute Q&A, 8 minute demo class, and 5 minute feedback. I heard back from my interviewer hearing that I passed immediately after my demo. The trainings and trial class both took about a month from my interview to complete. This included the background check which took about a week to hear back from.
