    Classroom Teacher Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Takoma Park, MD

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Prince Georges County Public Schools (MD) (Takoma Park, MD) in December 2017.

    Interview

    Applied on the website and was called for an interview. The interview will be as good as the person conducting it, and the process will vary from school to school. I went on two interviews and the first was a nightmare. I was taken to a room, given unlined paper and a teacher’s manual. and was told I had 15 minutes to write a plan. I worked feverishly and completed the task. I was then taken to another room with 10-12 school employees, all sitting with their laptops, who then fired questionscat me. It was a strange process, and I knew the moment they thrust the textbook in my hands I did not like ygevschool culture. I interviewed my best regardless and decided that even if the job was offered I would not take it. I later found out the position was available because the former teacher quit because of the school culture. The second interview I was treated like a professional and not a commodity. I took the job as soon as it was offered and love my school!

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Prince Georges County Public Schools (MD) (Upper Marlboro, MD) in August 2014.

    Interview

    I interviewed with various schools and principals. One met me at Starbucks and I was offered a position onsite. I had another interview only by phone and offered a position. I think the one thing that was most frustrating was principals promising to let you know if I was going to be offered the position or not, and never following up. They have lost the courtesy and professionalism.

    While visiting a college job fair at the university I attended, I met a PGCPS recruiter who encouraged me to submit my resume and apply online with the school district.
