Mission: Teacher Created Materials develops innovative and imaginative educational materials and services for students worldwide. Everything we do is created by teachers for teachers and students to make teaching more effective and learning more fun.
I worked at Teacher Created Materials, Inc full-time (More than a year)
Nice coworkers, great benefits and positive community outreach. I believed in our product.
Poor management by several key managers. Constant changes in department structure in 2016 made them feel like they didn't know what they were doing. Lots of good staff quit or were fired as a result.
I applied online. I interviewed at Teacher Created Materials, Inc (Huntington Beach, CA) in May 2017.
After I submitted my application, I received an e-mail from an intern from the HR department who asked me to pick a time for a phone screening using Calendly. I did so, and she called me at the appointed time. She went over my experience, then asked me several questions and typed up my answers. She also asked my salary requirements, and I told her and asked if that was in the range they had budgeted, but she said she didn't know. The next day I got an e-mail from the hiring manager asking when I'd be available for a phone interview. We agreed on a date and time a few days later, and she called at the appointed time. She explained that she works remotely, and that was why she was conducting interviews by phone. She also asked about my experience and asked a few more questions, and asked me if I had any questions. I asked about the salary and stated what I was looking for. She said she didn't know what was budgeted, that HR decides that, but she thought it was less than I was asking for. She then told me that if I was selected for the next stage, I would be invited for an on-site interview, or if not, I would be informed by e-mail. About two weeks later I got an e-mail that they had decided not to proceed with my candidacy.
On March 2nd, 2017 Teacher Created Materials shut down the company for #ReadAcrossAmerica day and employees read to students, completed campus projects, including painting and a makeover of the teachers’ outdoor lounge, and gave out free backpacks.
With an opportunity to provide cost-free shipping on all educational products, Teacher Created Materials reaches out to Louisiana schools affected by the recent disaster.
