    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at DC Public Schools (Washington, DC) in September 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and was asked to complete a performance task (has no clear instructions to see what you will do) . After that I was asked to come in for a in-person interview. The following week I was l told I was a finalist and gave reference and the hiring managers would have a final decision by the end of the week. After that I never heard anything back. Disappointing that after the time you put in (the performance task can be lengthy if you put real effort) and reference checks that they don't give you any feedback.

    Interview Questions

    • Asked why I completed the performance task the way I did.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at DC Public Schools (Washington, DC) in August 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was short, first it was an email confirming their interest, then a phone interview, then the face-to-face interview. I interviewed in a panel of 2, they were well prepared and alternated questions. The interview was about 35 minutes long, I received a call back a week later telling me I was selected as final candidate. The drug test, background test, and employment verification is what takes a long time. I waited 13 days for all those things to be completed.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at DC Public Schools (Washington, DC) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Application is online and easy. I applied in early June and received a call from one of the team's manager the next day. I had a phone interview the following week and it was fairly easy with questions regarding the position and various tasks associated with it. I would say to those applying for any position at DCPS to research the position and the team/department to get a sense of what the job entails. I was hired after speaking to the team's director and began working about six weeks after I applied.
