    Clerk Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Irving, TX

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Irving Independent School District (Irving, TX) in April 2013.

    Interview

    Nearly impossible to get an interview. You have to set it up the employees there are incredibly rude to visitors. The process took forever to get an interview or a reply and then after I received the job it would cost an extreme amount of money to pay for your own background check that they company asked for. Then it took an additional week just to get the background check and to get your credentials

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Irving Independent School District (Irving, TX) in August 2016.

    Interview

    There was a last minute opening at an elementary school for a kindergarten position and I was one of 8 candidates interviewed. The positive environment and substantial interview for the position created a positive experience. I didn't have but only one year of student teaching listed as experience so I understand why I wasn't offered the job with the pool of candidates.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Irving Independent School District (Irving, TX) in June 2013.

    Interview

    It was easy and comfortable as long as you're a passionate teacher who knows strategies and differentiation in the classroom. The principal who is now retired hired me. She was so friendly and personable and we spoke for over an hour about why we love education and how we want to give back to our community.

    Teacher Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Irving Independent School District.

    Interview

    I interviewed with the Assistant Principal at that time, Mr. James Peugh. The school had already interviewed me by phone and contacted my references, so the interview may have been more of a formality. He was really friendly. The meeting was less of an interview and more of a "here's how your first year of teaching will go" sort of conversation. I did a lot more listening than I did talking.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Irving Independent School District (Irving, TX) in November 2017.

    Interview

    Called me in for an hour long interview in front of 7 people. It wasn't bad, however it became obvious that I was only there to interview as they had no intention to hire me. The questions asked didn't relate to the job and they seemed like they had better things to do. I later found out from a friend that someone had already been chosen and the interviews were a formality.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    Applied online, completed background check, fingerprinting, online training classes, and an orientation. The total process took about 2 weeks, that was mainly because of the dates of orientation and the time it took to get an appointment for fingerprinting, usually the background check takes the least amount of time.
