    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Detroit Public Schools (Detroit, MI) in September 2016.

    Interview

    sitting in a room with 3-4 people answering different questions from all of the interviewers very formal with the Principal of the school doing the most talking. they made me feel I already had the job before I left. I was very impressed with them, very professional staff
