The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Denver Public Schools (Aurora, CO)

Interview

My first interview went well, topical questions but mostly talking about the position. The second interview was a panel, and frankly, the questions were unprofessional. Asking me about the weirdest place I’ve slept, rapid-fire questions involving Harry Potter vs Twilight, beach vs. mountain, cats vs, dogs, etc. I was asked one question regarding my experience, that’s it. Given that I have over ten years of HR experience, it was insulting that I spent my time advocating for Team Jacob instead of discussing my skills. This type of interview went off the books in an alarming way-did I not get the job because I prefer cats over dogs?! This is why HR questions should be standard across the applicant group. I feel like this group was told to come up with fun questions and this is what I got. Completely unprofessional and disregarding of my experience and interest in the role.

Interview Questions
  • Where is the weirdest place you’ve slept?
  • Rapid-fire: beach or mountains, cats or dogs, Harry Potter/twilight/lord of the rings, a few others like this.

I interviewed at Denver Public Schools

Interview

Traditional in-person interview with a short presentation. Not a lot of communication throughout the process. Discussion about resources for recruitment made it pretty clear that it was not well-funded or prioritized within DPS.

Interview

After I submitted my resume, I was contacted a couple weeks later and had a phone interview. The questions were standard questions that focused not on experience but how you would handle situations. A week later I had an in person interview with the 3 ladies who currently work in that department each having a question about how I respond to a situation. I was asked to take a written test that asked me what type of insurance would be needed for certain situations.

Interview Questions
  • How would you handle a complaint call that came in from a parent who was upset about their child getting hurt and the claim being denied after it was determined that DPS wasn't liable and they threaten to go to the press.
