    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at New York City Department of Education (New York, NY).

    Interview

    The interview was straight forward. I went to school I applied and sat with the assistant principal and another person that works there. We went through my resume and the AP asked questions. I then asked questions. Part of the questions I was being asked were in another language since that it the main population in the community. I was hired and had to go through fingerprints, and several paperwork at the main office in court street. This process took about 2 months.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at New York City Department of Education (Bronx, NY) in August 2012.

    Interview

    My interview was very brief and straight to the point. It basically depends on the principal/assistant principal who is interviewing you. Also, I don't know if it was done on purpose but they had me wait with a "student helper". The student asked me a ton of questions before I met with the principal.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at New York City Department of Education (New York, NY) in October 2015.

    Interview

    I had two interviews with the school, was offered the position on the spot during the final interview. The initial interview was with the Principal and her secretary, then 1:1 with each of the two Assistant Principals. The final interview was 1:1 with just the Principal. Be careful was you are told during the interview process, make sure all the conditions are on paper or in writing before you promise anything. I personally have to deal with a Principal who changed her words after starting the job.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at New York City Department of Education (Brooklyn, NY) in January 2013.

    Interview

    The interview process was entirely online. You were emailed appointments and told what documents were needed such as your State Id or Passport, Social Security Card, etc. There are workshops that are mandated to take before you start working. Taking these workshops before hand will be helpful so that you have everything you need upfront. The process seems tedious t first but actually goes fast thereafter.
