    The process took 3 weeks. I had a virtual HR interview in early April 2020 due to the COVID19 pandemic. I got an email 2 weeks later from HSI Austin wanting to interview me. I didn't get an offer, but they were kind enough to let me know before the weekend.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Harmony Public Schools.

    Interview

    Interview was very laid back and relaxing! The assistant principal through out a few scenarios to test my classroom management style. I was initially a bit alarmed because I had a similar time slot as another interviewee, but after speaking with the asst. principal, I felt somewhat confident that I had landed the job. I was honest, transparent and engaging.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Harmony Public Schools in July 2019.

    Interview

    The interview was in two stages. The first interview was with the AP and the second interview was with the principal. The questions are open-minded as they want to get to know you and your values, but mainly they are judging whether they think you will be willing and capable of the demands of the job. In my experience, I was misled in what to expect from the school in terms of job duties, student behavior, and classroom/curricular support.

    Interview

    My interview with Harmony went really well. First, I had to interview at the main campus and present a sample lesson for the grade I was interviewing for which was a little intimidating but they were very nice. After I got past that stage I interviewed with the principal of my campus who was very nice and easy going, she basically told me I had the job in the interview.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Harmony Public Schools (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    This is the worst process I've ever seen, the first thing they did was contacting my reference for feedback before they even decide on my application whether to accept it or not. No communication and I've never heard back anything from them!!!

    You go to the front office ask for the principal or whoever is interviewing you. They come out and greet you. You go into their office and they start by asking background questions and then they ask if you’ve ever worked in office settings. Then they go over the job requirements

It is important for you to get these things done in order to speed up the hiring process. Fingerprinting background check was a part of the process. Got an interview within a month of applying.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Harmony Public Schools (Houston, TX) in October 2017.

    Interview

    I interviewed twice for this position and it seemed to go very well and was told the decision would be made by the end of the week. I went two or more weeks without hearing anything. I soon received an email saying I was not selected and the job was offered to someone else. Well that appeared to be a lie because the job was immediately re-posted. FYI the job is still posted, months later so that says a lot about Harmony Public School's Administration!
