    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools (Charlotte, NC) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Two people interviewed me at the same time. I was asked several questions as to how I would handle situations in the classroom, with staff members, and administration. Each person asked me about 5 questions each. They used the computer to record my answers. The questions weren't very difficult, just pulled from my previous experiences in the classroom.

    Reasons for Declining

    I didn't want to go to the school where the position was located. It would have been an hour long drive.

    Senior Administrative Assistant Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools (Charlotte, NC) in August 2016.

    Interview

    There was a 3-panel review board that had prepared questions to ask. From what I could gather, they had asked the same questions to previous candidates. We were ending when one of the interviewers decided to ask another question and then another. The other 2 interviewers interceded and said they had asked enough questions. The 3rd person insisted upon asking me more.
    Fortunately, I was able to answer her questions and to her surprise got nods of approval from the other 2 present.
    Not sure why she felt she needed to do that, but I am thankful to Almighty God for giving me the wisdom to handle the situation.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools (Charlotte, NC) in August 2016.

    Interview

    The first interview was via phone. I spoke with the principal who try to sell the school to me by telling me that it was a military style school and that the students were uniforms. It was very miss leading because despite this, the students had several behavioral issues in general making it difficult to teach. The second interview was via Skype . Again, I spoke with the principal. She was very positive and seemed passionate about her work.
