    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Alexandria City Public Schools (Alexandria, VA).

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Alexandria City Public Schools (Alexandria, VA) in January 2015.

    Interview

    All candidates were interviewed on the same day. It's literally a revolving door of back to back interviews at the central office. The interviews overlap so you see the candidates you are competing with. Very tacky process. Panel interviews. You get blank steers while you are answering questions. It's a poker-face panel.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Alexandria City Public Schools (Alexandria, VA) in May 2012.

    Interview

    I met my principal at a job fair and we hit it off, right off the bat. I then had an additional interview with the APs at the school to visit the area and see the school. I brought my portfolio to both, and the questions they asked were pretty run-of-the-mill teaching interview questions.

    Negotiation

    There is a non-negotiable salary scale based upon the number of years youve been teaching and your education level.No relocation (but you can write off moving expenses on your taxes)
