    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Seminole County Public Schools (Sanford, FL).

    Interview

    After filling out the application, you will need to submit transcripts of all college education. Then send out employer verification forms to past employers, hoping that they will return them to the County Office to verify your years of experience. Your experience will be reviewedas to what is accepted. You will need to be finger printed, drug tested, and have a background check completed- at your cost. Often you will get a phone call regarding a position, as HR has to interview a specific number of applicants. A determination is usually made within a couple of weeks, wherein you will receive a phone call offering the position, or a letter stating otherwise.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Seminole County Public Schools (Deland, FL) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Horrible. Basically told me that I would work like a mule and if that was okay then I should continue the job interview. Also, I was asked how I felt about unions? I found that inappropriate

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Seminole County Public Schools (Oviedo, FL) in September 2014.

    Interview

    I was hired through one interview. It was very typical of teacher interviews and the principal liked that I sent her a personal email with my resume and reasons why I wanted to work in her particular school. The process was very pleasent from start to finish. The questions were mostly scenarios and "what would you do" type of things.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Seminole County Public Schools (Seminole, FL) in August 2014.

    Interview

    All jobs are on-line with submitting a resume for each position. You might need to volunteer and substitute at schools, to get noticed. Also, be willing to participate in "after hours" clubs. Be ready to sell yourself and know technology. Teaching is not a job for people that look at hourly pay but rather it as a salary position. Teachers do not get paid for vacations like most jobs. Teachers are not paid for grading papers, doing lesson plans, training at night or on the weekends.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Seminole County Public Schools (Seminole, FL) in August 2013.

    Interview

    I had to jump through so many hoops to get this job! Unbelievable amount of paperwork prior to submitting the application. Then you apply for a job, and the principal gets your resume and decides who they want to interview. They DON'T see your cover letter or anything else. Ugh. I got my job by visiting the school on my own--even though I wasn't supposed to.

    Interview Questions

    • "Tell me about a lesson you're really like to teach and why."   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiation. You're paid what everyone else with your level of experience is.

Get started early. Good luck.
