    Elementary Teacher Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Anne Arundel County Public Schools.

    Interview Details

    Submitted an application for the elementary teacher candidate pool and was emailed 3 days later for a prescreening phone interview. Then I had a phone interview with HR, but I'm not sure how it went because I have not been contacted by anyone in AACPS after the interview. They tried to explain their hiring process to me. I think if they like your phone interview, then they call your references. After they call your references, then they start submitting your resume to principals so you can get calls about teaching jobs within the district.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Anne Arundel County Public Schools in August 2011.

    Interview Details

    Difficult process. Staff at Riva Road BOE offices are evenly split: either very professional or seem unable to articulate their responsibilities. Keep copies of everything; you will need to resubmit! Offices are quick to give appointments but principals are not quick to make decisions. Be sure to say that you love kids, keep meticulous data, are in daily contact with parents/guardians, and will perform 20 hours a week of volunteer duties with no complaints. You'll be doing it once you are hired! Definitely looking for young candidates; whiten your teeth, color your hair, soften the wrinkles.

    Teacher Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Anne Arundel County Public Schools in July 2010.

    Interview Details

    About 2 months after applying online, I received a phone call from an administrator to set up a phone interview since I lived out of state. On the day of the phone interview, there was a panel of administrators (principal and two assistant principals) who interviewed me in a conference call. The interview lasted approximately 35-40 minutes. They asked me a lot of in-depth, technical and situation-specific questions. Two days later, I called them to see if I was offered the job, which I was.

    Interview Questions
    • I honestly don't remember - there were so many questions. I didn't find them difficult, since I have many years of experience in the field, but I do remember that they were very situation-specific.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation for salary was possible. After I was told that I got the job, I had to call the HR department, I was told what my salary was going to be, and from here on it was a nightmarish bureaucracy with many-many phone calls and in-person visits to the HR, regarding my certifications and getting all my data right in their computer system. The HR department seems to be rather disorganized and inefficient.
