    Pros

    You work by yourself for most of the work that you do and get to decide on how things are run in your class, although there is a general code of conduct that each employee needs to abide by when conducting the class. Even though there are many instructors for karate, you are in charge of your own curriculum, parent helpers, and hiring secretaries.

    Cons

    Sales of merchandise, for me at least, ruined the nature of karate as it was the only way to make a decent wage. Each season there is new equipment that the students can by, which is fun for them to try, but you have no choice but to include it into your ever changing curriculum or risk losing out on students whose parents spent money on buying extra merchandise. The wage is also quite low and for the amount of time that needs to be done outside of class when submitting registration forms, logging in students who attended, drive time, and mailing out documents makes the work not worth it all together.

    Advice to Management

    Management was quite friendly and kept the instructors motivated to continue bringing quality instruction to their students. Sales of merchandise, however, makes the company more like a business than a dojo.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Young Champions USA (Santa Ana, CA).

    Interview

    I received an email indicating that my resume was received, and they wanted to set up an interview for me to meet with the CEO. The meeting was scheduled, and Skype was used as I don't live in the area.
    I was asked to complete and submit the paperwork for a background and credit check prior to the interview.
    The interviewer was late. I sat and waited for over 30 minutes for him to join the Skype interview. The IT person came on and asked me to wait for the interviewer after about 15 minutes. The interviewer did not use a camera, and didn't have any set questions to ask. He seemed very distracted. After speaking to him for 15 minutes or so he handed me off to the woman who sent me the original email.
    I was told that I would be contacted the following week. I didn't hear anything, so I followed up with her. She indicated that they hadn't made a decision and said they hoped to have an answer the following week. After not hearing the following week, I sent another email, and never heard back.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions were not difficult, but I could tell they didn't have much experience interviewing people. I was asked if I was married. I was also asked to give ideas about how they could improve their recruiting strategies.   Answer Question
