    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Prince Georges County Public Schools (MD).

    Interview

    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. I was then contacted by a human resources official to set up an interview with the principal of a high school. When I showed up to the interview, the principal was not there, and instead I was interviewed by one of the schools assistant principals. The next week I received an offer letter which I signed and submitted.

    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.

    Math Teacher, Middle School Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    I wanted to cry after I have an answer to how I handle a hard situation and the principal told me I handled the situation poorly. I felt like the principal was playing devils advocate with all of my answers. It was like he had a certain answer in mind and wasn't satisfied until i gave that answer. At the end of the interview they said they wanted to hire me...still not sure what I did right. Not sure if I'm going to take it or not.
