    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Arlington Public Schools (Arlington, VA) in June 2009.

    Interview

    Very relaxing, the hiring manager was very friendly. The people, office, and work culture were very lax and frienly.

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation phase. I would basically advise others considering an offer to take the offer and not attempt to negotiate. It's too good of a job as seasonal work to not take.
