    They asked about my experience with customers and how to deal with different situations. About office procedures, and if I new about receiving/shipping, inventory, etc. They also asked about my personal life, family, my hobbies and interests. About my last job, why I retired from it, etc. My experience working in Miami Dade County Public Schools is great, I learned a lot about different stages, from basic office procedures to complex scenarios. Since I am a fast learner I could learn anything I needed to do what my employer wanted to accomplish.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Miami Dade Public Schools.

    Interview

    The interview process was relatively easy. There appears to be a shortage of qualified teachers and if you have the educational background, passion and correct mindset then you should do well. Although it may be more challenging to teach, interviewing for at a high-need school may help you secure a job if you are qualified. I do not think competition would be a challenge.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Miami Dade Public Schools (Miami, FL) in August 2011.

    Interview

    Panel interview downtown - way back in the day - 1999. They don't do it that way anymore, for most jobs. All the higher ups sat around a large conference table and asked questions. The school district was very different back then. Student Services was a highly respected and powerful department each campus. We were the heart of the campus. The district has recently started to move back toward that under the leadership of Mr. Moore because of his experience in alternative ed. and his understanding of serving the whole student so they can be "present" and learn while at school. The pendulum is finally swinging back to respect. There is a long way to go still.

    I was hired by the Assistant Principal and the person in charge of the After school Program. They alternated while asking my questions.
