    Pros

    Great Pay, Great facilities, Extremely wide variety of opportunities for students to find a niche

    Cons

    Although data is important, it seems the district is focusing more on data than students, faculty, and staff. When working in education, the focus should always be on people, and I'm not sure if that's truly the case anymore. This may be a product of trends in public education at the moment, but unfortunately, it's not the right thing to do, in my opinion. Most people I knew talked more about students' test scores rather than the students themselves.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to make the work environment more student-focused, rather than test-focused.

    Bus Driver Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at HEB ISD in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied for the bus monitor job and interviewed a year ago, but received a letter saying they had hired someone else. (This is for a job posting that remains open year round.) I applied again this year, but when the secretary called she asked if I'd be interested in being a driver. I was hesitant but scheduled the interview anyway. I have a college degree and I'm an excellent driver, so I thought maybe this is something I can learn. I filled out a form when I got there and then waited a while even though I didn't see any other applicants being interviewed. Just as before, two people interviewed me in a private office. The first question is "Why do you want to work with kids?" After that, you're grilled like it's a corporate job instead of a bus driver. What would former supervisors say about you? In what areas would co-workers say you need to improve? How do you handle conflict with other co-workers? I was even asked, "How would you structure the bus?" The bottom line is, unless you have experience working with kids, don't bother. That's all they're trying to find out. And when you ask questions and they act like you're wasting their time, rest assured they've already made up their mind. I wish I had gotten up and walked out.
