    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at DeKalb County School System (Stone Mountain, GA) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Interviewed for aspiring leader cohort. It was awful. They seemed to play psychological games. The interviewers did not interact as you would with a traditional interview. It was very stoic. It takes a lot to rattle me and I walked out of it feeling God awful, pissef off, etc.

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at DeKalb County School System in December 2009.

    Interview

    Interviewing was the easiest part but I am now on my 6th principal and I have only been working in the county for 9 years at 2 schools. The interview was like a sit down with a friend more than an interview. Know about differentiation. Know how something about CCGPS and know that the curriculum is ever changing. Be sure on an interview with Dekalb County that you mention that you are flexible.

    Negotiation

    There was non but now I am at a point where I need a job of negotiation.
