    School Counselor Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Killeen Independent School District (Killeen, TX) in September 2016.

    Interview

    HireVue virtual interview; phone interview (out of state)
    I was selected as one of the top 3 candidates for the position and was notified by HR that they would contact references. HR also stated it would contact me with any updates regarding the position. However, HR did not contact me, and I checked the job opportunities in the district to find the same position I applied for reopened. I think it was very unprofessional of the dept. to repost a position without letting one of your top 3 applicants know he/she would not be considered for the position.

    There was a 12 panel interviewing team and each one asked one question each. The questions were situational and open ended.

    Example:
    Was there ever a time where conflict among employes affected job morale? If so, what actions did you take to change the situation. Why should we select you for this position?

    The interview lasted approximately 20 minutes and a offer was made within 3 days of interview. Very easy interview.

    Campus Instructional Technologist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Killeen, TX

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Killeen Independent School District (Killeen, TX) in June 2012.

    Interview

    Test on a computer to verify technology and educational skill set. Questions ranged from basic troubleshooting to in depth instructional scenarios. It was mostly multiple choice with a few short answers. After the test, I was called back for a round table interview with CTO and 8 - 10 principals. I was asked around 10 questions - instructional based questions from the principals, technology based questions from the CTO. The questions were fairly comprehensive and would have been difficult to answer without a strong technology and instructional foundation (I have previous experience as an IT person and an after school educator)

    Interview Questions

    • How would you use technology to improve instruction and education for students and teachers?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There were no negotiations. I was made an offer by three schools, the pay is all the same as it is decided at the school board level, not the campus level. Had I known they had 9 positions they needed to fill, I might have attempted to negotiate the pay, but the politics run so deeply in this district that if I had been making more than the entry/base salary - technologists at other campuses would have probably pitched a fit.
