    Administrator Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Cypress-Fairbanks ISD (Houston, TX) in May 2015.

    Interview

    I thought the interview went well in-person. I believe they already had their candidate initially picked out. I was told that I would hear from upper management within 2 days. I received a call in a week but missed it. I called back within 5-7 mintes and left a voicemail. I called again the next day and left a message with a secretary and sent an email. I received a call back a few days later thanking me for my interview and letting me know another candidate was selected. The candidate turned out to be friends with upper management, which confirmed my thoughts of them being unprofessional.

    Interview

    Great interviewing process! All schools were welcoming and informative. Admin gave a brief tour of the school each time. Questions were very common and appropriate. After the interview, I was recommended for hire almost immediately. No complaints.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Cypress-Fairbanks ISD (Katy, TX).

    Interview

    The district conducts the first interview, which is over basic teaching 101 (think of the pedagogy tests). However, a school principal can call you up and circumvent this interview (which is what happened to me). In my interview, they told me that the students they work with can be tough (it was the lower end of the district). They didn't exactly grill me and it was more of them trying to sell me the position.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Cypress-Fairbanks ISD (Cypress, TX) in February 2014.

    Interview

    Very brief, normal interview. They asked basic interview questions..."tell me about yourself", "how does your job experience prepare you to work here". I hear that the interview process is a bit more in-depth since I was hired but i'm sure it's not anything complicated.
