    The professional development at DISD is great and the opportunities to move up are endless if you have the right mentor and support. Compared to other districts, Dallas starting pay is very competitive.


    The benefits program is horrible. I would probably do better paying my own benefits out of pocket rather than opting to partner with DISD.

    Advice to Management

    Reduce the cost of the benefits package; teachers already do not make the highest of salaries. Try to remember that if the teachers are happy, they will be much more productive for the students that they teach.

    Average Interview


    I applied online – interviewed at Dallas Independent School District (Dallas, TX).


    Called via telephone and was asked to come to the campus for an in-person interview; arrived and was interviewed by the Assistant Principal (in one small office), then was interviewed by the Principal in a conference room. Was called the next day by someone in HR (Human Capital Management) and offered the position.
