    Students are engaged in authentic and challenging learning tasks that prepare them for life. Houston has a diverse community, and all children are given curriculum that will guide them to the next level.

    Associate Teacher Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Houston ISD (Houston, TX) in March 2014.

    Interview

    I was offered a face to face interview fairly quick after I submitted my online job application. I would say the overall process was quick because I got a job offer within 5 days. The only thing I didn't like is that their hiring process ends in the first week of April so I have to wait until June to do my orientation, which means I won't be able to start until August. I don't know why they stop the hiring process so early.
