    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at Plano ISD (Plano, TX).

    Interview

    Applied on line. Lots of phone calls from numerous schools before positions were filled. Existing employees settle into positions as they open over the summer. Easy face-to-face after that.

    Interview Questions

    • I actually applied for a different job. They asked me if I would consider teaching. Otherwise, I do not recall any questions. It was a done deal. Over qualified for the position.
      O. Would I agree to get certified?  
      1 Answer

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation. Like the job, you take what they give you. I was given 3 years' job credit for 24 years experience for a specialty, hard-to-fill, license required job. Pay was well below my profession but I took it for other reasons.

    Teacher Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer

    Interview

    I was a student teacher before I was hired, so I had already been observed by the administration. I applied though official channels, but my students and my mentor teacher had put in recommendations o hire me and that helped, a lot. I was a hands on dedicated student teacher and put in a lot of effort in building lasting relationships with my peers.

    I prepared for the interview with some questions of my own, had feedback and an idea of both pros and cons of the job going in. I also had a reason for why they should pick me above everyone else; which was a question they did ask.

    Interview Questions

    • Why should we pick you? I was a minority candidate and I felt I represented the minority I would serve in a positive manner which would benefit the employes positively. I feel this did help to get me hired.   Answer Question
