    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Atlanta Public Schools.

    The interview was brief with little questions asked. I felt as if the interview was rushed. This was a difficult experience. I felt more of a number and maybe if I didn't attend a job fair it would be better.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Atlanta Public Schools (Atlanta, GA) in March 2019.

    Interview

    I had a positive interview experience with APS. My interview panel consisted of 3 individuals who were pleasant and a joy to interact with. I was very nervous at first but they made me feel comfortable. I had a 2nd interview and it went well. There were 2 people interviewing me. I had to submit a paper prior to the interview and do a presentation and more questions for the 2nd one. I am very happy to have had this opportunity. The process stretched me and whether i get the job or not, I am thankful for the opportunity.

    I came in through an alternative teacher prep program run by the district. This program no longer exists in the district. It was a rigorous summer training program where we observed and taught summer school for six weeks. We were also in classroom sessions learning content and classroom management skills. We then still had to get certified through GSU.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Atlanta Public Schools (Atlanta, GA) in April 2013.

    Interview

    I was contacted by HR for a brief phone interview. Hiring managers AA contacted me for a face-to-face. I arrived 30 mins early for testing. Testing consisted of drafint an email, creating a spreadsheet and creating a presentation based on a fictional scenario. While the tasks and instructions were clear and easy to follow the amount of time allowed to complete all steps did not seem sufficient.

    I was then interviewed by a panel of 3 (Hiring manager and 2 department heads).

    Interview lasted approximately 1 hour.

    The hiring manager called the next day for a follow up phone screen.

    I was offered the job 2 days later.
