Hey, everybody!

I have my second interview with MIL this week and wondered if anyone knew what I might expect from this? Is there a third round of interviews or do they hire after the 2nd round?

Also, does MIL require a pre-employment physical or is that handled once the teacher in Japan, like Interac?

Okay, second interview is done. To answer my own questions and for future reference:

1. There is no pre-employment health check.

2. The second interview is comprised of questions concerning past
experience: Relate a specific success story.
Relate a time when you worked with a supervisor or manager who was difficult.
Relate a time when you worked with a supervisor or manager who was very easy to work with.

And hypothetical teaching scenarios. For instance, you have 4 women in your class who comprehend at an Elementary level. What are six questions you could ask to get them to talk abou their family?

I won't find out if I'm hired until the middle of next month. If I manage to land a third interview, then I am basically in.

I was asked those questions for my konbini job. Since pretty much every interview in the US asks them, you'd think they'd pick some more challenging ones.

What website did you use to apply for MIL? My search lead me to www.miljapan.com but I get a malware warning.

Good luck.

MIL is hiring right now. Go to Ohayosensei.com for the job posting. It will include the link and e-mail address for applications.

Anybody know what's up with MIL? I though I would have heard something, yay or nay, by now.

I sent them an e-mail and they sent me back an application to fill out and instructions on what other documents they wanted. I sent everything back to them about two days ago.

I've already completed the first two interview sessions. I'm waiting on confirmation of either a third interview or of MIL's complete lack of interest in hiring me. I thought I would have had one or the other by now, not that I am in a huge rush to be rejected...

Are you serious, 3 interviews? For an eikaiwa-typ job? You've gotta be kidding. The companies have turned the hiring process into a circus - multiple interviews, grammar tests, essays, demo lessons. Just for an eikaiwa job? I

was around when it was still pretty much an applicant's market - e.g.:

Quote:
Got a heart beat? Check!

Breathing? Check!

Native English speaker? Check!.

Okay, you're hired! Can you start this afternoon? Bring your own materials...make it fun.


Things have changed big time.

MIL is a special case. They have almost no poor reviews and from the people I've managed to contact, it's a sweet place to work.
