    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at New York City Department of Education.

    Interview Details

    Two (2) phone interviews with general HR style questions and one (1) in-person onsite interview. The phone interviews where more a check on my background and current role. They wanted to be sure I had experience with massive amounts of data. The in-person interview was a panel style meeting and the employees where every observant and attentive. They let you talk and they listen. Some have education background so they were good listeners.

    Interview Details

    Teachers' Union helps with the process. Full information available at UFT website.
    You can be hired with a BA or BS degree as a subject teacher but need an MLS for school librarian. But you must consult the Department for the latest particulars, just google NYC DOE for the home page. Last I heard you had five years to get your masters in any other subject area, and three more years to be tenured.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at New York City Department of Education in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Apparently, they reposted this position. I assume they could not find anyone since the interview process had been poorly conducted.
    I received an e-mail from the head of Adult and Continuing Education Programs division, informed me about the time and location for an interview. However, it was not a real interview but a computer testing skill.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 daysinterviewed at New York City Department of Education in August 2014.

    The whole hiring process was very streamlined. Emailed a resume and a cover letter on a Thursday afternoon, and received a response to come in for an initial interview the following Monday. The initial interview took about 20 minutes, and they invited me to do a demo lesson the following Wednesday. Many applicants came in on Wednesday, making the whole interview process get behind schedule. The demo lesson itself went great, and most observant enjoyed the lesson.
