    I have been working at Boston Public Schools part-time

    Pros

    Work when you want, plenty of options of different schools and grades, pay is not bad for a part time, job security is pretty good

    Cons

    The school system is crazy and there are many schools with serious behavioral issues from students, not for everyone, sometimes they switch you around to a job you didn't sign up for, no PTO or paid sick days, no work for the summer

    Advice to Management

    When someone signs up for a job, they should get that job. They shouldn't be randomly tossed into a position they did not sign up for.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Boston Public Schools.

    Interview

    It started with an online application, then a pretty short phone interview, followed by an in-person lesson given in front of a small committee. Overall it was pretty standard.

    Interview Questions

    • A lot of what-if questions regarding behavior management and scenarios involving at-risk students   Answer Question
