Average Interview

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 a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Los Angeles USD (Los Angeles, CA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    I went down to HQ and did a demo lesson. I decided to use photosynthesis as the topic of the lesson because I was going to be teaching science and I wanted to use an example that is fairly common and relatable so that the interviewer could participate in the learning process. There was only one interviewer and the process took around 30 minutes.

    I was interviewed at the district office and in each the principal's office. Some schools interview you with a team that includes other specialists, teachers, administration, and parents. They ask you about 12 questions, and may ask you for a second interview with another set of 12 questions. You will receive a call from the principal if they want to hire you.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Los Angeles USD (Los Angeles, CA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    The process began at a hiring fair. I felt that the structure was very antiquated and not entirely professional. You realize about half-way through that they are simply trying to fill vacancies and aren't very interested in discussing school culture or vision. People drop their resume into a school with matching vacancies. You then interview with principals from each of the schools that express interest. I can't complain about the interview process, but I wasn't happy when I was promised several resources for my classroom that weren't available when the school year started.

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Los Angeles USD (Los Angeles, CA).

    There were several steps. One was to interview at the District Level, and then once approved by the district and verification of credentials and tests, you then have to interview at individual schools for openings.

    Interview

    It was very brief. The interviewer called me over to his desk, looked at my resume. Asked me some generic teaching questions and then I was hired. They have improved their hiring process since I was hired.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Los Angeles USD (Los Angeles, CA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Very thorough and lengthy
    The background check took a long time, getting an appointment for a group panel interview tool about 3 months total. Make sure you have all updated medical records, TB test and physical. Make sure you pass all tests, CBEST and CSET. If you are in limbo about getting results for one test, then wait for the results , it will go quicker

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Los Angeles USD (Los Angeles, CA) in December 2012.

    Interview

    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.
