Application

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Los Angeles USD (Los Angeles, CA) in December 2016.

Interview

Eligibility Interview first before you even get on the candidate list. Process took some time because of my references. Hiring managers get lots of emails so keeping in contact with them is a must in order to know your status.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Los Angeles USD (Los Angeles, CA) in December 2014.

    Interview

    Look online for vacancies at the LAUSD website. Submit a Letter of Interest, Resume, Credential Verification, and Letters ofRecommendation to the Site Administrator, in person or via fax. If fully qualified and a top candidate, you will be contacted by phone and an interview will be scheduled. A panel interview with the Site Principal, Assistant Principal and Teacher Advisor will be conducted. You will be given a sheet of paper with the standard interview questions in written form. (The same questions are asked of every candidate.) You are then verbally asked these written questions. As you respond, the panelists make notes and may, or may not, ask you to clarify or elaborate on your responses. After you leave, they convene. If you are deemed a good fit, you will be called and offered a "limited" (non-permanent) position in about a week.

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Los Angeles USD.

    Interview

    I had one interview for an elementary school teaching position. I was asked several questions, from the standard "Why do you want to work here?" to "Delve into your experience working with children." I am bilingual (Spanish), and the area where the school was located had a majority of Latino students, so that came in handy when explaining my ability to communicate with Spanish-speaking parents if necessary.

    Negotiation

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Los Angeles USD (Watts, CA) in June 2014.

    Interview

    Lots of paperwork to fill out and deliver to different floors of headquarters. Many stamps required/boxes to check off. You have to give a sample teach and then answer behavioral questions. This clears you to work for the district but you still need to interview with individual principals. Overall, the difficult part of the interview was getting all of the paperwork filled out correctly and signed by the right person - it seems dated and intentionally tedious.

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Los Angeles USD (Los Angeles, CA) in May 2013.

    Interview

    My interview was very easy and conversational, but that is not normal. The principal at the time only cared that I was a UCLA grad with a Master's in Education.

    I felt very unwelcomed in several schools. Only one Principal was genuinely warm and welcoming and made me feel as if she genuinely wanted to get to know me better.

    Interview

    Quick and easy district interview followed by more questioning at local site. I was too anxious to get a job to thoroughly investigate the best working conditions. Fortunately I was able to transfer to a different school after the first semester.

    The process takes some time before you get hired. You have to get fingerprinted. They will look closely at your references and you must get a TB test before you can go into the classroom. You must pass several test before you even get an interview. The actual interview is pretty easy.
