I have been working at Hesperia Unified School District as a contractor (More than a year)
Easy to work for and quick payment.
Hard to get your foot in the door
I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Hesperia Unified School District (Hesperia, CA) in August 2015.
One has to apply through Edjoin.org when the position becomes available to the public. If selected, you must pass a 35 wpm typing test and a general accounting knowledge test (you pass with 70%). If selected again, then they scheduled you for an interview. Interview is panel style with 5 interviewers (Director of Fiscal Services, Assistant Superintendent, Accountant, Senior Accounting Specialist, and someone from another department). You are given 10 questions and about 10-15 mins to review before the interview starts. Once it starts, each interviewer will ask 1 question, when done, you have opportunity to ask any questions. Still gave me the idea that they had a specific person in mind. I will wait for Sept when the board will approved the position; that's when I will find out the name of person hired.
