    Ap Calculus Teacher Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer

    Interview

    It was extremely quick from the phone interview to the in person interview. I got a call on wednesday and they asked a couple of questions about my background and then 10 minutes later they asked me to come in for an in person interview that friday. In person interview was very basic and straightforward. Extremely casual.

    Interview Questions

    • I had to give a sample lesson plan to the assistant principle and the head of the math department. Still very simple.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    The funding only allowed for a part-time sub position.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Harmony Public Schools (Odessa, TX) in September 2015.

    Interview

    First, emailed to see if they had openings. Then, about 5 weeks later, I received a response in my email to call and set up an interview time. Once I interviewed for a position, they offered me a full-time position instead of a sub position. It was a wonderful interview.

    Negotiation

    The offer of a salary I had never been able to achieve at the last school district I'd worked for just amazed me. Harmony pays more for their teachers and I was rather pleased.

    Public-Facing Communications Role Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Harmony Public Schools (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    The hiring manager reached out in a timely fashion and we set up a few phone screen, which followed a more formal interview, which led to an invitation to a sit-down with the manager and another employee. This is where got awkward - I don't know if it was a good-cop-bad-cop situation they were trying to do, but the second interviewer walked in late, was inattentive and constantly on their phone, and asked all their questions in ways that could easily have been asked much less antagonistically. At one point, the person asked, "What makes you think you'd fit in?" (without looking at me for longer than two seconds if memory serves) and that's when I knew everyone's time was being wasted. Spare yourself the awkwardness that, if it doesn't pop up in an interview, will catch up naturally with a controversial CEO.

    Interview Questions

    • What makes you think you'd fit in? (It may have been "be a fit.")   1 Answer

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Harmony Public Schools.

    Interview

    i had 5 different interviews at 5 different school in 4 different cities with Harmony. I lived in Dallas and drove to Houston for one interview. I told the person one the phone that I did not have a SPED cert yet even though they wanted to interview me for that position. She claimed it was okay because charter schools had different standards and they didn’t require I have it. So I took off work and traveled to Houston only for the interviewer to tell me that I qualify for the position because I had not obtained the SPED cert yet.
    This school system wasted my time.
