There was no interview process at all. Once your application is submitted they will email you within a few business days. Does not appear to be very competitive. Before starting online training must be completed.

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Seattle Public Schools (Seattle, WA) in Nov 2019

Interview

I submitted an online application and received an email shortly thereafter to schedule an interview. The interview was before a panel. The questions were from a simple list of ten that the panelists took notes on. Overall, the interview style was conversational and comfortable. Unfortunately, there was no follow up whatsoever, not even a decline email.

Interview

teaching interviews in SPS are horrible scripted things. they have to ask every candidate the exact same questions. They cannot ask any followup questions. They cannot respond to your answers at all. It's always 30 minutes. They'll give you the questions a few minutes ahead of time and they take notes, copious notes, the whole time you talk.

Interview Questions
  • know how to talk about diversity - not your travel experiences. Know how to talk about dealing with kids from trauma. know how to be professional with parents and children,

Application

I applied through other source. I interviewed at Seattle Public Schools (Seattle, WA) in Jan 2019

Interview

Way too short, 4 questions and not a friendly face to expand on the questions that were asked. The room was tense full of people, but only one person asked 4 questions and the people taking notes looked scared to say anything. Walked out feeling weird about the whole thing.

Interview Questions
  • 4 basic management questions, with no follow up if this is what they were looking for or not. The interview felt tense from the get go.

Interview

Upon arrival, you're given a list of questions to review and take notes before the interview begins. Anywhere from 3-5 nurses can be in the room, management, peers, other people in the health services dept. Each person takes a turn asking a Q and they write their answers. Very casual and friendly. Then you have an opportunity to ask Qs back at the end.

Interview Questions
  • The school community is racial diverse, how does your past experience prepare you to work with people from all different backgrounds?
