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.

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

    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).
