    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.

    Interview

    The interview process was the more like a scare tactic where they tell you how they need a qualified teacher in every classroom and then they don't give you any tools to help you be successful. As long as you are certified and if you are an elementary teacher..you can pass a 4th grade math test you should find a job somewhere in the district.
