Applicant FAQs


Why didn't I get an offer of an interview?

We receive many applications each year.  Some of the most common reasons that applicants aren't contacted for interviews are:

  • We're just not hiring right now.  Mad Science typically hires staff in September and then sporadically throughout the year.  You may be applying at a time when we do not need employees.
  • Your availability didn't match the open positions.  You must be available at least two afternoons between Monday and Thursday as well as Friday afternoons.  If your availability was different, we cannot consider your application.
  • You're not at least 18 years old.  We need to conduct police background checks on all our staff.  If you are not at least 18, we are not able to complete this mandatory part of the employment process.
  • You do not have a driver's license or access to a reliable car.  The majority of the schools where we run the After School Program are not on bus routes.  As well, the kits are large and heavy, so you cannot easily transport them without a car.
  • You need more experience working or volunteering with children.  This is a very significant part of the job and we always recommend getting as much experience as possible before applying.
  • You are currently attending the Faculty of Education (Teacher's College).  Although this would seem like a great fit, the schedule of the Faculty conflicts heavily with Mad Science.  Please consider Mad Science once you have completed your studies.

I've been offered an interview.  Now what?

We'll set a time for you to interview with us.  Here are some things to remember
.

  • We generally hire for more than one position at a time.  If you do receive a job offer, chances are others may have received one as well.
  • We interview candidates in groups of about 8 - 10 people.  Mad Science is a team.  We want to see how you compete with others...not against them.
  • Interviews take about 2 hours.  We want to allow everyone to have a chance to shine and that takes a little time!
  • Interview questions are common sense based.  No periodic table of elements questions.  We promise!
  • We'll want to see you perform.  Think you can captivate a classroom of kids?  We'll give you two minutes to present a basic science lesson to us and the other candidates.  Props are encouraged!
  • We want to see you at your best.  Relax!  This will probably be the "funnest" interview of your life!
