The process took a day - interviewed at Metropolitan Nashville Public Schools in April 2010.

Assistant Principal Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Metropolitan Nashville Public Schools in November 2010.
Interview Details – The principal contacted all those he planned to interview via email. The email contained all of the candidates names and interview times. We weren't given a choice as to whether the date and/or times were acceptable. The upside was that we were told how long it would take for him to make his decision. At the end of the one on one interview we were told that he would select the top two candidates and bring them back on a specified day to be interviewed before a panel. He sent an email to all those he interviewed one on one and told of the three (instead of two) that he was bringing to interview before a panel.
