    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Cypress-Fairbanks ISD in June 2016.

    Interview

    It was very easy. I applied online and attended a job fair (not CFISD's) but the job fair didn't amount to anything. I received an email from principal wanting to schedule an interview the following day. The interview included typical questions you would get at any school to let them get an idea about your teaching style and how you would handle different situations that may arise. I received the recommendation for the position the same day as interview. Took about two weeks to go through HR.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Cypress-Fairbanks ISD (Houston, TX) in May 2015.

    Interview

    I thought the interview went well in-person. I believe they already had their candidate initially picked out. I was told that I would hear from upper management within 2 days. I received a call in a week but missed it. I called back within 5-7 mintes and left a voicemail. I called again the next day and left a message with a secretary and sent an email. I received a call back a few days later thanking me for my interview and letting me know another candidate was selected. The candidate turned out to be friends with upper management, which confirmed my thoughts of them being unprofessional.

    Great interviewing process! All schools were welcoming and informative. Admin gave a brief tour of the school each time. Questions were very common and appropriate. After the interview, I was recommended for hire almost immediately. No complaints.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Cypress-Fairbanks ISD (Katy, TX).

    Interview

    The district conducts the first interview, which is over basic teaching 101 (think of the pedagogy tests). However, a school principal can call you up and circumvent this interview (which is what happened to me). In my interview, they told me that the students they work with can be tough (it was the lower end of the district). They didn't exactly grill me and it was more of them trying to sell me the position.

    Interview Questions

    • Are you going to handle students that may be a little difficult?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    No negotiations.
