    I have been working at K12 full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I very much enjoy my job as a teacher at a school in the K12 network. My specific principal is very open to allowing me to try new things and modify my course in a way that I think best way to serve our students. I feel respected and like my voice matters. Additionally, the flexibility is amazing. I can schedule my lunch break so I can volunteer in my daughter's classroom or go to a dr. appointment - no need for sub plans - yay! Also, many of the assignments are computer graded, so I do not need to grade as much as I did in a brick and mortar classroom. After my first year, I have been able to complete my job in a 40 hour week.

    Cons

    The benefits are expensive! I pay ~$350 a paycheck and still have a $5000 deductible until covered 80/20. The pay is not as good as if I were in a brick and mortar classroom, but I have no commute and my schedule is somewhat flexible.

    Advice to Management

    I would recommend management strive to be the benchmark in the industry as far as pay and benefits rather than to adjust with the industry. We just had 3 personal days removed. Our 10 sick days + 3 personal days are transitioning into 10 sick/personal days.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at K12.

    Interview

    I was initially sent an email to see if I was still interested and if I would like them to send me a test followed by virtual interview. As I was, I replied that I would like to an hour later.

    The HR corresponded responded to me a week later with the test. The 'test' was incredibly easy. All I had to do was follow a component tutorial in Figma and make an instance of it, give file access to a couple people, then send an email with answers to a couple questions.

    I did that in 15-30minutes on the same day as I received the email. I had no response so I followed up 3 times in the following two week. twice with the HR correspondent and once with the official careers email. I have still not heard anything back.

    TLDR; Very tardy responses, embarrassingly easy test, got ghosted

    Interview Questions
