    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 weeks. I interviewed at Jefferson County Public Schools (Kentucky) (Louisville-Jefferson County, KY) in January 2012.

    Interview

    The very initial process was confusing and hard -- once you figure out the online applications, it's easy to go in for fingerprinting and the "interview" -- which for me was just picking assignments I would prefer. The hiring assistant who worked with me was very courteous, kind, and professional.

    Interview Questions

    • Well, at the very beginning the clerk lady wouldn't let me apply for assistant teacher -- she wanted me to be a sub teacher, since they pay more. I left and came back another day she wasn't working. (I was a substitute teacher the previous year, in a different district, and I was right to assume assistant subbing is a lot more fun, a lot less stressful.)   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    The pay is so-so, but the work is great if you want something immediately that you can quit anytime. Oh, and it's fun to work with kids usually.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Jefferson County Public Schools (Kentucky) in August 2011.

    Interview

    I was fortunate that the principal knew me from a previous job as a teacher's assistant at another school we both worked at. He called me on the phone and asked me if I was still looking for a teaching job in special education. When I said "yes," he asked me to come in for a interview. I was expecting a group panel interview with 7 or 8 people all asking me different questions. Instead, it was only with the principal who asked me just a few questions. At the end of this brief time, I was offered the position on the spot and I gladly accepted.
