    I applied online. I interviewed at New York City Department of Education (Long Island City, NY).

    Interview

    One in-person interview with the then Deputy Director. This position no longer exists, so you're likely to interview with the Director or anyone he assigns. The process is very limited: You must apply online (no referrals accepted) and then wait. The DOE is a huge entity and the wheels move very slowly.

    School Food Service Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Long Island City, NY
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at New York City Department of Education (Long Island City, NY) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Applied and got an e-mail saying they'd contact me when a position opened up. The next week I got a call to schedule an interview in two weeks. I have B.S in Nutrition & Dietetics, no food service management which they clearly saw from my resume. From the interview questions it was clear they were looking for someone with food management experience or a degree in hospitality. I honestly think they should remove the B.S in Nutrition and dietetics from the application requirements because it was clear that didn't matter to them from the interview. All they asked me were management questions when my resume clearly showed I had no role in management. It made me uncomfortable because I had to keep trying to relate my answers back to my job even though it was clearly not what they were looking for.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at New York City Department of Education (Sunnyside, NY) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Expressed interest through the NYC DOE New Teacher Finder. A month or so later I was contacted by the principal to come in for an "Open House" which turned out to be group interviews. The invitation made it seem like it would be more of a meet and greet with staff, so I was surprised when I came in and they were doing quick 5 minute interviews in groups of 2.

    I met with the Assistant Principal first. She asked me some questions about myself and my approach to teaching.
