    Curriculum Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Louisville, KY
    No Offer
    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.

    I applied online and received a call for an in person interview about a week later. The staff was very friendly and professional.

They asked a set of standard questions about classroom management, why I wanted to teach music, and what skills I had as an educator.

    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Jefferson County Public Schools (Kentucky) (Louisville, KY) in April 2014.

    Interview

    Very easy with a panel interviewers, asking each candidate the same questions. Each interviewer asking the candidate their assigned question. A candidate is interviewed every 30 minute of approximately 6 questions. The the interviewer asks a question of them. Very generic, not very challenging. Somehow you know they have a candidate in mind or hand picked by the director, whether you do a good job or not.

    Bus Driver Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Jefferson County Public Schools (Kentucky) (Louisville, KY) in October 2013.

    Interview

    The hiring process is a bit long beginning with your regular application, fingerprinting, etc... This is followed by them calling you for an "interview". Everyone is essentially "hired" to come to the job training. The training class is great and JCPS gives you everything you need to pass the written exams. You will need to pass the States test, purchase a temporary learners permit to progress and be involved in the driver training which starts immediately when you begin training. Once you pass all of the written and driving tests (there are many!) don't think its over yet. Once you get your CDL B which gives you the legal right to drive the bus and take passengers they send you to a compoud near where you live. JCPS assigns you a training you "shadow" picking up/dropping off students and then you drive!

    Interview Questions

    • There is none. JCPS hires pretty much everyone if you pass the FBI background check. Interview I had didn't know some questions I asked and gave me bad information.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Jefferson County Public Schools (Kentucky) (Louisville, KY) in May 2012.

    Interview

    It's been about 10 years, but from what I remember, it was a typical interview process. They asked the basic questions like what are your strengths and what are your weaknesses. They asked me how I would handle diversity in the classroom.

    Substitute Teacher Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Louisville-Jefferson County, KY

    Positive Experience
    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.
