    Teacher Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Kïhei, HI
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Hawaii State Department of Education (Kïhei, HI) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Was a bit of a flash interview. The man spouted off rapid fire questions, and didn't want to give eye contact. He said it would distract him from my answers. I think it's done on a point system.

    Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Interview

    Not very difficult; more of a conversation than an interview; talked about the structure of the Department of education; what types of projects I would be working on; who I would be working with; I think it was more of a personality screening than anything else

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Hawaii State Department of Education.

    Interview

    Interview was very brief. It seemed more like a "talk story" session than an interview. It was low-key, casual, and kick back. The individual conducting the interview did most of the talking.
