    Teacher/Middle School/High School Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Marietta, GA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Marietta, GA
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Cobb County School District.

    Interview Details

    I hired in before the Internet became the primary way to submit a resume and all documentation. Back then, I interviewed first at the County Office, then I was sent to a specific school with an opening that matched my qualifications. There I interviewed with 2 principals. The offer officially came from the System Office the next day. I don't know if this is the same pattern now that applications are handled online.

    Interview Questions
    • I think the most difficult question in any teacher interview is to explain your philosophy of education.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    In education, teaching in particular, there is no negotiation process. You are offered a contract, and pay is based on degree and years of experience. Though, that system is likely changing as Common Core comes into effect and as teacher evaluation models change.

    All interviews are conducted by the principal and assistant principal of each school. Most of the time, they let you know before you leave whether they are planning to offer you the job. Although, according to the district's policy, they are not supposed to do this. Principals are forced to interview a certain number of people that have applied, even though they plan to hire within.

    Administrative Assistant/Secretary IV Central Office Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Marietta, GA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Marietta, GA
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Cobb County School District in August 2008.

    Interview Details

    It is almost impossible to get an interview because of the large volume of applicants.
    You have to get your name out there but emailing or sending resume to the school or site you want to work. If you do get an interview, it is likely they already have someone in mind (85%) of the time. Most interviews are set up by the secretary and you might interview with as many as 4-5 people at one time in the room.
