    Interview

    Was recruited for the job by a partnership company that I worked for. I did one interview and a background check. The process was not difficult, they seem to hiring several people that are already connected to the school system. This can be seen as a pro or a con, it is definitely a place in which "knowing" the right person will get you the job. In some cases it seems that can trump ability (not in my case, but with some co-workers)

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Baltimore City Public School System (Baltimore, MD) in December 2014.

    Interview

    Basically, there was a panel interview of 4 employees and many of them were writing down the answers to the questions given. After the interview, I had never received any call back or email on whether anyone was hired for the position or not. After a while, I started to contact the HR department but never heard anything back from them or the manager.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Baltimore City Public School System.

    Interview

    For this position, the hiring process consisted of a phone interview, a performance task, 2 panel interviews, and reference checks, all over the course of three months. The length of time between each step ranged from 1-3 weeks. While the interviewers were nice, I felt as if it was a waste of my time, because the hiring manager decided not to hire me because I didn't have enough experience in a particular area. I'd have rather found this out earlier vs wasting three months of my time participating in tasks, interviews, etc.

    Interview

    I was placed in Baltimore as a secondary math teacher via Teach For America. I got my specific job placement at the summer hiring fair. The interview process was fairly quick. The then-principal explained what the philosophy of the brand new school was, and after a small handful of questions, I was hired.

    Interview Questions

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at Baltimore City Public School System in April 2013.

    Interview

    I was hired through a program similar to Teach For America. It is called the Baltimore Teachers Residency. It is a good deal for someone who is looking to get certified in public education while earning a full salary. There are a couple of rounds of interviews, but these are not the most competitive. The first round is a written application, with 3 references as well as a whole bunch of legal documents for working with children. The second round is a phone interview. The third round is an on-site interview. I interviewed with 2 cities and was not accepted. Then, I was accepted to a third city, because they offered me a phone interview and after I told them I could not travel for another on-site interview, they accepted me off of the results of my phone interview. Make sure that you are curt and tough in your interview. This is about the only thing that they will look for in the interview. Many people who start teaching do not make it through the summer training, because they are not expecting teaching to be so physically draining. Most people quit after 1 year, even more quit after 2 years.

    Interview Questions

    • What would you do if students were taking out their cell phones in class?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    There is no negotiation. Every teacher is offered a salary based off of their salary step.
