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

The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Los Angeles USD.
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.
- Why did you apply to teach at this school and not X school in another district? Answer Question
I was straight out of undergrad so there was no negotiation. My salary was set.

I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Los Angeles USD (Watts, CA) in June 2014.
Lots of paperwork to fill out and deliver to different floors of headquarters. Many stamps required/boxes to check off. You have to give a sample teach and then answer behavioral questions. This clears you to work for the district but you still need to interview with individual principals. Overall, the difficult part of the interview was getting all of the paperwork filled out correctly and signed by the right person - it seems dated and intentionally tedious.
- What would you do if students are trying to leave class? 1 Answer

I applied through college or university. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Los Angeles USD (Los Angeles, CA) in September 2011.
Quick and easy district interview followed by more questioning at local site. I was too anxious to get a job to thoroughly investigate the best working conditions. Fortunately I was able to transfer to a different school after the first semester.
I didn't even think about negotiating at the time. I was given 3 choices of locations and then sent to interview at the school site.

Met with the Principal she was very charming and professional. Questions asked: How do you differentiate instruction? What experience do you have working with students with special needs? What grade level are you most comfortable teaching?
