    Always changing, never boring, be ready to change mid-stream of a new direction


    Not much advancement opportunities, people skills are lacking

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Lawrence Public School USD 497 in December 2009.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and received a phone call for an interview a few weeks later. Went to the district office for an interview which lasted about 30 minutes. Received a call within a day or two offering the position to me. Was not informed of the hourly rate, was told by the hiring manager that she did not know what the pay rate was. Went back to the district office a couple weeks later to complete HR and benefits paperwork. Was notified of the pay rate before signing the employment agreement. Began work the next day with about 30-45 minutes of training by a coworker. No training was provided by the supervisor. Had to complete a physical and drug test within a certain amount of time after hire. A background check was also completed.
