Difficult Interview

Math Teacher, Middle School Interview

Math Teacher, Middle School

Interviewed at Prince Georges County Public School

Interview Details – I wanted to cry after I have an answer to how I handle a hard situation and the principal told me I handled the situation poorly. I felt like the principal was playing devils advocate with all of my answers. It was like he had a certain answer in mind and wasn't satisfied until i gave that answer. At the end of the interview they said they wanted to hire me...still not sure what I did right. Not sure if I'm going to take it or not.

Program Coordinator Interview

Program Coordinator
Upper Marlboro, MD

Interview Details – Panel interview. Called back for second panel interview. Interview process was very long. It took 60 days to receive a response regarding the position. The HR partner was slow in solidifying the next steps.

Interview Question – The interview was not difficult. Questions would not be difficult for a subject matter expert.   View Answer

Very Easy Interview

Instructional Lead Teacher Interview

Instructional Lead Teacher
Landover, MD

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Prince Georges County Public School in August 2013.

Interview Details – The process is well put together for the applicant in the Oracle system. The postings allow fast application. THe interview process however is not well organized. I have secondary (middle-high school subject specific experience) and I was interviewed to be a testing coordinator and reading specialist for one position, I was not clearly told what would be expected for another, and was interviewed for a position that the principal already knew who they would be hiring in another.

Interview Question – I was asked simple questions about my background. There were no questions that really made me differentiate myself from any other applicant.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There is no negotiation phase in this career. All salaries are based on time in service education, and are specific to the position.

Very Easy Interview

Teacher Interview

Teacher
Upper Marlboro, MD

I applied online - interviewed at Prince Georges County Public School in May 2013.

Interview Details – Interview was great, but details were not given as to what the position was really like, what hours outside of normal business hours were required, etc. Be sure to find what specific grade you will be working with, as well as any challenges they foresee with the job. Also be sure to determine how many hours are expected of you outside the normal business hours, committees, etc. Ask about the Evaluation process and what is the typical protocol

Interview Question – None really difficult questions. Just the same basic things, ie: something bad that happened and how you handled it, etc.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Not much negotiation, they are desperate for teachers, you will likely get hired if you are a warm body
