Mission: Equal Opportunity Schools’ mission is to ensure that all students have the opportunity to succeed in challenging high school courses.
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Equal Opportunity Schools in June 2018.
A phone interview with just 3 questions. The 3 questions were not typical phone interview questions but multi-part questions requiring lengthy and thoughtful responses and not technical at all. I thought the questions were better suited to an in-person interview because the appropriate answers tend to be more conversational in fashion and it helps to see your audience and get a read on whether or not they are following along with you. I found it difficult to talk at length on any of my answers because of this.
Interviewer provided very little context about the position or the company and did not ask me about my career or experience before jumping into the 3 questions. I didn't feel as though I could accurately represent myself and the qualities and skills I could contribute. I had many questions about the job but their questions didn't specifically relate to the role so I wasn't sure if it was actually the right time to ask them once the end of the interview came. I felt that all of my questions, regarding culture, company and departmental goals were not suitable follow-up questions compared to the questions I was presented with.
There was a question about diversity that I felt uncomfortable with. I come from a very diverse background and am in fact a very diverse person who currently works in a very diverse environment. I felt uncomfortable with the choice to exploit this in a job interview question, especially one over the phone and chose one simple example instead.
