    Average Interview

    Interview

    I waited for about 30 minutes because there was no organization. After getting into the room, the hiring manager spent most of the time on the phone during the interview. I found this disrespectful and opposite of his claim if treating people the way he would like to be trwates.
    Overall negative interview.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at New York City Department of Education (Brooklyn, NY) in April 2018.

    Interview

    Receive a nomination from the Principal and it is up to the candidate to complete next nexts in their own time. This will determine how long the process takes. The "interview" portion is done while they are checking your paperwork and it is more of a conversation, it does not feel like an interview. The essay portion is a general questions about teaching, such as "What makes an effective teacher?".

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at New York City Department of Education.

    Interview

    I had a group interview, very easy basic questions and pretty quick. After that I had to go to another interview which was in a bigger location and there was about 100 other people there. We had very fast interviews, literally like 2 minutes, asking why I want to work in this job and to describe myself. Once they have interviewed everyone we were all asked to submit a writing sample from a random question they ask us. Very easy and quick interviews. Nothing to be worried about.
