    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Baltimore City Public School System (Baltimore, MD).

    Interview

    Principal was a bit ill-informed about my background. Had a unexpected "show me what you got" request with students during interview. Make sure you research the school that you are going to interview for and get multiple opinions. The interview was OK, as a first year teacher you do not know what to expect but there normal job questions were ask and I was asked to present my skills etc. unexpctedly

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Baltimore City Public School System (Baltimore, MD) in August 2014.

    Interview

    informal and rushed and desperate and they were very vague about the details for the school culture and about how they handled students who violated tier I and Tier II rules and procedures. Vague answers about extra curricular activities and didn't explain the severity of the low test scores and how the majority of students (90%+) could not read --and or were reading 3 and 4 grade levels behind. Also, they did not explain that there was not an effective reading intervention process in place -- that I would have to create that on my own...and that once you were hired- you were trapped regardless of incompatibility issues with that particular school. Also, that nearly 80% of the teachers hired for my position had resigned because the conditions were so bad -- with management playing favoritism, micro managing and notifying us of serious deadlines sometimes only on or two days prior to the deadline.

    Interview Questions

    • overall they asked vague questions -- nothing about my background --seemed like just wanted to get warm body in front of the classroom --did i deal with misbehavior?   1 Answer

    Interview

    I was hired for a position I didn't interview for. It was chaotic you have to go through orientation before they will offer you a job. And even if you go through orientation there is no guarantee that you will be offered a job.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Baltimore City Public School System (Baltimore, MD) in March 2013.

    Interview

    I did not have an interview. I was hired through Baltimore city teacher residency, a program for people without teaching degree or background. Even they did not interview me. I interviewed in Baltimore, for an Math teaching position in March, was rejected, then got a call from Philadelphia teaching program offering me a job based on my Baltimore interview? I accepted in Phiadelphia, then in July the program in Phladelphia went bankrupt because the city put a hiring freeze on new teachers. Baltimore city teacher residency sad they would accept any teachers willing to move to Baltimore which I did. I was placed in a high school and only briefly met my principal in passing when being shown the site.
