    Curriculum Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Louisville, KY

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Jefferson County Public Schools (Kentucky) (Louisville, KY) in September 2016.

    Interview

    My phone interview began with "We will only be asking you one question, and you have four minutes to reply. Are you ready?." The question was incredibly wordy and included are too many elements to be address in four minutes. Really JCPS? You're hiring for a district level position, and you believe you are able to glean from one question all you need about a candidate?

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Jefferson County Public Schools (Kentucky) (Louisville, KY) in July 2016.

    Interview

    JCPS sends your resume to schools that might want to hire you, the schools then conduct the interview and then tell JCPS whether they would recommend you work at their school. If JCPS agrees that you would be a good fit, they hire you for that position. The schools cannot hire - only make recommendations to JCPS.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Jefferson County Public Schools (Kentucky).

    Interview

    Applied online and was called 3 months later after I called HR multiple times to ensure my application was complete and being reviewed (they won't look at it unless you inform them it's there or that you know someone who works there). A principal emailed me a few days before school started and asked me to interview the following week. When I arrived, there was one other person looking at me during the interview with a serious face, and I was asked one question and then told I had the job. It lasted all of 10 minutes (at the most).

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Jefferson County Public Schools (Kentucky) (Louisville, KY) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Very quick and expeditious. If you have no criminal record and a relatively clean driving record you will get hired on the spot. The best time to get hired is in the summer when school is out, you won't have to jump into the madness during the school year that way. The CDL training takes about 4 weeks and you get paid for that. It's really not a bad deal.

    Interview Questions

    • Do you know your way around the city well?   1 Answer

    Interview

    The hiring process consists of a very long orientation process, which is overloaded with tons of information, though the information is vital to the organization. I was not officially interviewed, though I was supposed to have been.

    Interview Questions

    • There was a test before hiring, mostly just common sense and simple as can be.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There are no negotiations in the field.
