Special Education Assistant Interview

Special Education Assistant

Interviewed at Los Angeles USD

Interview Details – There wasn't an official interview when I got hired but I've heard that employees usually sit before a panel consisting of a parent, principal, teacher, and union representative. General questions are asked. They will give you a scenario question and ask what you would do. General reading and math test is administered at a different time, along with fingerprinting.

Interview Question – Scenario questions can be difficult. You never know what they are going to ask so you need to be prepared for any question. Always have the students' safety and privacy in mind.   Answer Question

Associate Computer Applications Specialist Interview

Associate Computer Applications Specialist
Los Angeles, CA

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Los Angeles USD in April 2011.

Interview Details – The interview process was quite long. I had to wait about half an hour before they took me to room for a 90 minute skills test and then I had to wait for almost an hour before I had a half hour interview on a list of questions that I was given to review during the skills test. The interview was done by 2 people and it seemed pretty straight forward. Other than the long wait time, everything seemed kind of Okay.

Interview Question – Explain a situation in which you took it upon yourself to make the initiative to resolve a problem with a customer.   Answer Question

Coordinator Interview

Coordinator
Los Angeles, CA

I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Los Angeles USD in October 2010.

Interview Details – LAUSD has a centralized interview process. All communication was via e-mail. I was given an interview appointment time. The interview consisted of a written exercise (1 hour allotted) and a panel interview (about 30 min). The great thing about this interview process, was they gave you the questions ahead of time so you could be prepared with your best answers. The writing exercise was to write how you would respond to a work situation. The panel interview was with two central office employees, one was a retired school principal, the other was a central office director - neither of whom has any connection to the hiring department, which I thought was a little strange. They also film your interview (I've never had that happen before). Overall it was fine.

Interview Question – Please describe how your current or past work experience has prepared you for this job.   Answer Question

Beyond the Bell After School Program Interview

Beyond the Bell After School Program

I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at Los Angeles USD in August 2010.

Interview Details – It was a pretty basic one-on-one interview. They wanted to know about your prior experience with kids and what you would do to get them involved with the program. It took about 20 minutes. The atmosphere was very relaxed and everyone was really nice. My advice to others would be to be creative with your answers and to make sure you think about things from a kids' perspective; know what kids like and what you would do to help them enjoy the program.

Interview Question – What are some activities that you think will help children focus more on their academics?   Answer Question
