    Office Clerk Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Dallas Independent School District in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    I arrived 14 minutes early for my interview and had to wait about ten to fifteen minutes after the interview was supposed to start. Once I was taken to the office to interview, the interviewer was interviewing another candidate for a teaching position. I had to wait about fifteen more minutes. My interview lasted all of ten minutes or less. I was told to tell them about myself. I was given the rundown of the position, asked about two more "yes" or "no" questions and then I was asked if I had any questions. I was told they had other interviews, but would contact me back soon. She verified my information and that was it.

    Executive Administrative Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Dallas Independent School District in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and was contacted within two weeks via telephone. The person on the telephone was laughing and speaking to another person at the same time as requesting that I come to their office for some "testing" of my technological abilities. I was given the location and told to come for "testing" the next day. I asked what kind of testing and they replied "stressful". There was no additional information given. When I arrived, I completed a Microsoft Word, PowerPoint and Excel test. They had multiple questions and it took 1 hour to complete. They then asked me to interview on the spot without any preparation. During the interview, the team spent a lot of time making inside jokes and teasing each other instead of concentrating on the interview itself. It was highly uncomfortable. They even mentioned that my English was good when I mentioned that I was another nationality (Canadian's speak English, just FYI). It was offensive and I knew that I wasn't interested from that instant.

    • Most of the questions were typical interview questions with a lot of jokes inserted.   Answer Question

    Two interviews, interview process went smooth. The most difficult part was waiting for the call for the next step in the hiring/interview process. The questions were relatively easy due to the fact that they were job related. Despite the fact that there were a number of applicants. It went well overall.

    I was offered the job and i believed i had the job for a whole month, only to turn around and be told i wasn't recommended for the job. Very confusing, especially when it arrested my job search at a very crucial time. I was unable to capitalize on available jobs because of poor communication and am currently seeking jobs with other districts.,

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Dallas Independent School District.

    Interview Details

    They take along time from reviewing application to a call for an interview and then the interview scheduled date. The Interview was so basic they could have just done this over the phone.

    Interview Questions
    • The questions were easy. What is a legal hold? Why should you get the job? Tell us a strength and tell us a weakness. Instead of a one on one interview they surprised me with a panel interview. The interview was short and could have been done over the phone.   View Answer

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Dallas Independent School District in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    You are not interviewed for this position. You just have to qualify by verifying you have a college degree and passing a criminal background check. You have to take a TB test as well. There is a one day orientation you must attend that used to be very entertaining and had a great speaker. It is now just factual and a bit boring.

    Interview Questions
    • It took a long time to get hired in 2013. They seemed a bit unorganized and I believe it was due to a lot of new changes from the new superintendent.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    Everyone gets the same salary. If you are a certified teacher, you get 100.00 a day. If a college graduate, you get 75.00 a day.
