I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Kelly Services.
Interview Details – Starts with an email to Kelly Services followed by an in-person interview. The interview and initial paperwork will take at least one hour. If that goes well, fingerprints are checked (at the employee's expense) and background checks are conducted. If those are good, you attend orientation session where you learn Kelly Svcs, school system, and how to find vacancies in the system. Very shortly thereafter you start in the classroom.
Interview Question – Nothing unexpected or difficult. The usual "Why do you want to be a substitute teacher?" There is some discussion of state and local school system policies. I suspect that is to gauge your response or feelings about them (1) if you never taught school before or (2) if you taught school, to inform you of local policies. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – No negotiation. There is a set schedule that includes: an hourly wage for teacher aides (no degree required), a set rate per day for a degreed candidate (any degree- a higher degree does not equal more pay), and a set rate for a candidate with a current in-state educator license (an out-of-state license does not count but there is a process to obtain a current state license).
Very Easy Interview
