    Interview

    I emailed a recruiter with my cover letter and resume. I was called a week later and asked if I was still interested. About a week after that, I was given an offer and asked to fill out and send them the official application and paperwork. Then I was contacted and told I would need a TB test. Once that was confirmed, I was scheduled for a processing appointment, and then officially given the position.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Los Angeles USD.

    Interview

    Applied online for a substitute position. I am credentialed. Waited forever (months) with no communication. I had to contact my connection and was able to get an eligibility interview. I thought since it was for a substitute position, the questions would be different but you're asked questions as if you're the teacher of record and would see the students long term and can make long-term decisions regarding the class. Questions were typical teaching interview questions. For other non-credentialed substitute applicants, the interview ends there. But since I'm credentialed, I had to go through the entire interview process as if I was applying for a fulltime record teacher position, even though I was just looking for a sub job. So I had to do a 12 min sample teach and essay writing sample.

    Negotiation

    No negotiation.

    Interview

    Long process and lacked information on actual job responsibilities. Testing is required and was pretty straight forward. All interview activities are held in downtown Los angeles. The remaing are via phone calls.

    Interview Questions

    • No difficult questions just lack of information where you will be assigned. They inform you after exhausting your time. If you hope to work in the valley, you might as well forget about that. They don't throw much resources there.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Los Angeles USD (Los Angeles, CA) in December 2014.

    Interview

    Look online for vacancies at the LAUSD website. Submit a Letter of Interest, Resume, Credential Verification, and Letters ofRecommendation to the Site Administrator, in person or via fax. If fully qualified and a top candidate, you will be contacted by phone and an interview will be scheduled. A panel interview with the Site Principal, Assistant Principal and Teacher Advisor will be conducted. You will be given a sheet of paper with the standard interview questions in written form. (The same questions are asked of every candidate.) You are then verbally asked these written questions. As you respond, the panelists make notes and may, or may not, ask you to clarify or elaborate on your responses. After you leave, they convene. If you are deemed a good fit, you will be called and offered a "limited" (non-permanent) position in about a week.

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Los Angeles USD.

    Interview

    I had one interview for an elementary school teaching position. I was asked several questions, from the standard "Why do you want to work here?" to "Delve into your experience working with children." I am bilingual (Spanish), and the area where the school was located had a majority of Latino students, so that came in handy when explaining my ability to communicate with Spanish-speaking parents if necessary.

    Interview Questions

    • Why did you apply to teach at this school and not X school in another district?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I was straight out of undergrad so there was no negotiation. My salary was set.
