    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Wake County Public Schools (Holly Springs, NC) in September 2014.

    Interview

    A group interview with the principal and four other Fourth grade Teachers.
    Each teacher had a set of questions to ask and had subgroups of questions that
    demanded more specifics of my answers. This took place after the academic day
    and they seemed exhausted. All were from the north originally and had moved here
    to North Carolina to teach. When the principal stepped out of the room and the interview
    was basically over, I asked them how they felt about teaching in a non-union environment .
    They were a little stunned by the question and really didn't answer except the vibe was that they
    were anti union.
