    Teacher Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at VIPKID (London, England).

    Interview

    Terrible, unfair process. I passed every part of the interview and was constantly receiving gushing feedback. Then, after the second mock class, they told me that I wasn't good enough and deactivated my account. This was after both of my mentors told me I would pass and asked me to buy a headset and lamps before I began teaching. I already have years of online ESL teaching experience and positive reviews from all of my students, so it came as a huge shock. The mentors should not lie and tell teachers how amazing and wonderful they are if in reality, they are lying. VIPKID also expects teachers to invest money into props and expensive equipment in the interview process, which I will never get to use in a teaching situation.
