Average Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Houston ISD (Houston, TX) in December 2017.

Interview

I interviewed with the Principal of the school. I got to the school fifteen minutes before my designated time. Once there I waited about 40 minutes before being seen, there was some one waiting ahead of me. Once in the Principal was very nice, she told me a lot about her campus, the make up, size, faculty, etc. Gave me a history of herself, ask me a lot of direct questions about myself and experience. Afterwards she introduced me to several staff and faculty members and toured me around the school. A good positive experience, but unfourtunately i haven't heard back from her.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Houston ISD (Houston, TX) in June 2017.

    Interview

    It wasn't a very difficult interview, but I was not offered a teaching job. The principal was supposed to call me at a certain time, and he didn't. So I ended up calling, and he was busy. The secretary interviewed me. I expected not to get an offer.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Houston ISD (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    Basic questions. During the interview, the interviewer was pleasant. After she hired me, it was obvious she had severe emotional issues. I wish I knew then what I know now. The interview was easy and comfortable! It was deceptive. The contract stated "and other duties" which meant working on another department doing a completely different role.

    Interview

    I met with the principle first. After the interview, she showed me around the campus. She discussed who I would be working with if I got offered the job. The next day I interview with 5 people from the campus. It was the general type of interview. They asked questions that you can google.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Houston ISD (Houston, TX) in May 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process is long and slow. This is true of all school districts, perhaps, and not specific to HISD. However, if schools really wish to advocate for teachers and future teachers, they should conduct the process more like corporate jobs. Instead, they promise openings that don't exist so they can fish for resumes. Then, they say they will follow up and usually never do.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Houston ISD (Houston, TX) in April 2015.

    Interview

    I was called by multiple principals in the district to come in for an interview. Interviewed at several schools one time, but interviewed at my favorite school twice and was hired at the second interview. The first interview at Katherine Smith Elementary was with the former principal, Gloria Salazar. After that I was called in for an interview with a panel of administrators and teachers. After about 20 minutes of questions, I was offered the job in front of the panel.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Houston ISD (Houston, TX) in April 2015.

    Interview

    You start by applying online (do so before late April to meet hiring deadline). You get a phone interview, from that they will send you a contract to sign to work with HISD. Your HR rep then sends you from school to school until a principle decides they would like you to join their team. I had no experience, only applied here and signed the contract. I interviewed at 5 schools. I was told no when interviewing with the schools in May, but in July as the new school year grew closer I got a job offer and even a school which previously rejected me called to offer me a position.
