    I have been working at Wake County Public Schools

    Pros

    Great funding, strong central office leadership
    Opportunities for professional growth
    By and large, motivated and committed parents and community
    High teacher supplement

    Cons

    work-life balance
    school level management uncertainty
    compensation
    time-off policies
    limited merit-based pay opportunities
    "And other duties as assigned" provision of contract

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remove the "and other duties as assigned" provision of the contract. Be more prescriptive about what exactly you'd prefer teachers be spending their time on, as the provision allows for them to be taken advantage of.

    Application Details

    I applied through other source – interviewed at Wake County Public Schools.

    Interview Details

    It was hard to get an interview but once I got a call after a year, I was interviewed by the principal and a central office administrator. They asked me to sign an "Early Contract" within 48 hours to lock my position at their school for the following school year.

    Interview Questions
    • There was no question too difficult. However, I did not enjoy the assumptions that I would not be able to handle a classroom of students after 7 years of classroom experience.   Answer Question
