    Administrative/Clerical Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Towson, MD
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Baltimore County Public Schools (Towson, MD).

    Interview

    Just completed and passed the typing test.
    Upon contacting Michelle Rhinehart, a link was sent to my email. I signed up by selecting, date, day and time.
    On day of test, parking was a challenge. We all waited in a room near the reception area. Then Ms. RHINEHART announced "everyone sitting for test, come with" her.
    She took about eight of us into a room with tables, laptops and vessels with 3 sheets in plastic covers. Sample. She was careful, precise and explained all steps along the way before we began typing.

    Interview Questions

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 8+ months. I interviewed at Baltimore County Public Schools (Baltimore, MD) in August 2016.

    Interview

    I applied with BCPS months before they finally reviewed my application. They actually didn't interview me until August; literally a week before school began. You have to do an entrance interview first, which I completed in December at a job expo. Once you pass that, HR will add you to the candidate pool where principals/schools can contact you for employment. You then meet with the school/principal and from there you will get hired by HR.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Baltimore County Public Schools (Towson, MD).

    Interview

    Not too hard, make sure your personality shines through. Talk about past lessons and experiences. The interview process was very, very long. first you have to be selected to be interviewed by the county after you submit your application which can take weeks, then after your screening interview if you did a good job you have to wait to be interviewed by elementary school principals. After that you may or may not be offered a job.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Baltimore County Public Schools.

    Interview

    They were prompt. It was a panel interview. I did not feel as if the job description adequately conveyed what the position required. I had to fill out a lengthy application (which I think could have been done online) and they were unwilling to budge on interview times. It was the first day of school in the district I was employed in at the time.

    Interview

    Interviewed with the Department Chair and Principal. Job offer came a few weeks later directly from HR. Asked a lot of questions about classroom style, qualifications, interests, and experiences. Both seemed very knowledgeable and approachable. I had to choose between several different schools. The process was very time consuming because I had to meet with several schools before I knew if I was getting an offer at a school I already interviewed with.

    Administrative Secretary II Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Baltimore, MD
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Baltimore County Public Schools (Baltimore, MD) in June 2014.

    Interview

    Someone else had already been selected for the position, but out of obligation to HR protocol, 6 people still must be interviewed (have their time wasted). The interviewer had contacted my administrator prior to the interview, and my administrator job blocked me, saying please don't take her; we desperately need her at our school. I was interviewed by a panel of people.

    Interview Questions

    • If you have a sick student, a disgruntled parent, and an administrator enter the office at the same time, how would you prioritize? They asked several trick questions, such as "We like to curse and joke around in the office; it helps us get things done. How do you feel about that?"   1 Answer
