    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took a dayinterviewed at Oakland Unified School District in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    I wasn't directly hired through OUSD. Teach For America hired me, then placed me in Oakland. I got a call from a new principal and he hired me over the phone! Very simple. Very direct. Very desperate.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Oakland Unified School District.

    Interview Details

    Application is via edjoin. If you are selected you go through a phone screening or 3 references. The Principal or regional manager (if you are applying for a Principal job), interviews you. If you are selected, HR will get the recommendation. Once that happens HR will further check your credentials, and other paperwork....fingerprints, degrees, etc. Each interview is different, due to different sites, but the process is the same.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Oakland Unified School District in February 2011.

    Interview Details

    They employ a very unfair method of interviewing. Usually already having someone else in mind, they continue with interview asking the same questions each time. You will get asked basic questions but you most likely will not get picked for a job thanks to the terrible office politics.
