    I worked at Edison Township Public Schools full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The district has a positive vision for students and upper management is responsible with finances and personnel

    Cons

    The district is very large and can be impersonal at times. The demographical differences between north and south Edison create for difficulties in consistent approaches to education.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Edison Township Public Schools (Edison, NJ) in April 2017.

    Interview

    I interviewed for a position as an elementary special education inclusion teacher. I was asked the standard interview questions for a teaching position. The interview was very stuffy and informal and more like an interrogation rather than a conversation. I was told right up front that they were screening candidates and would perform extensive background checks. The interview was conducted by a supervisor and a principal. They asked a lot of follow-up questions regarding your answers and resume. I would suggest they do their screening interviews over the phone or since the districts makes accolades about their use of technology using video chat. Anyway, the days prior to the interview I had a few other districts offer me positions with their schools and were good fits. I was really interviewing them more than they were interviewing me. I was asked to bring my resume and a copy of a lesson plan to the interview. The interview went well until the end. They misunderstood an answer I gave and did not let me clarify my response. Instead, they ended the interview abruptly and kicked me out of the school. The principal sarcastically thanked me for my time and gas to get to his school. He was very rude and unprofessional.
