    Very easy. There is no interview process. I was sent new hire paperwork 3 weeks after I applied for Substitute Teacher and asked to schedule a orientation.

They'll ask you to bring your sealed college transcripts, driver license, social, etc. the usual documents asked at every job.

    Intervention Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Austin, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Austin ISD (Austin, TX) in December 2010.

    Interview

    I filled out the district's on-line application and indicated my interest in the position, along with several others. I had already passed the required background check and had my teaching certificate. Weeks later, a woman from central office called me and offered me the position, sight unseen, no questions asked. The experience left me with the impression that the district did not really look at what applicants had to offer and attempt to place them where they could do the most good. Perhaps a lot of vetting happened behind the scenes, though.

    Negotiation

    Not able to negotiate.
