    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at One Hope United in April 2016.

    Interview

    I was contacted by an HR rep who did a phone screening covering my education and experience. Then I had an in person interview with the center director. The questions were straightforward - about my previous experience, what I would do in different situations in the classroom, etc. The one strange part of the interview was I had to take a survey with different personality questions on it. They said it was anonymous, but some of the questions were personal and uncomfortable to answer.
