    I have been working at Perkins School for the Blind full-time

    Pros

    A very caring culture of intelligent committed teachers and staff. The school is on the most beautiful campus, too. It's a delight to walk around the campus each day

    Cons

    The pay could be higher for teachers. Though having "Perkins" on your resume is a plus.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Perkins School for the Blind (Watertown, MA).

    Interview

    Once recignized as a camdidate, HR will contavt you for a phone interview. If you do well, HR will pass your resume onto the hiring manager with notes, If the manager is interested, you are asked for a face to face. Good luck from that point and smiles.
