    I have been working at Indianapolis Public Schools full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Knowledgable, empathetic, and passionate coworkers
    Support for new staff members

    Cons

    Everything comes down from management very rushed, usually only given a short time to produce reports, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Focus not so much on compliance and recognize employees for dedication more.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Indianapolis Public Schools (Indianapolis, IN) in June 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online over a weekend and was asked to come in for an interview the following Tuesday. They didn't seem to care that I was from out of state. Once the interview was set, I drove out to Indy.

    I got an email 10 minutes before my interview time telling me that the interview was at a different location. Apparently some secretary made a mistake. Since the new location was 20 minutes away, I had the interview on my phone in the parking lot of the elementary school I originally thought the interview was at.

    He said "we're making a decision by the end of the day" and he fact they didn't make a strong effort to see me in person made me assume they already had someone else in mind, which is fine. I just thought it was extremely unprofessional and a HUGE waste of my time.

    EDIT: A couple weeks later, the principal emailed me asking if I could call him. I asked him when, and he gave me a time the next morning. I had to reschedule my day around this phone call to make sure I had time to talk to him. He started talking about the rest of the interview process (even though he said they were going to make a decision on the day of my previous interview?) and after that he asked me if I have any jobs lined up yet. I said, "I have an offer", SO HE IMMEDIATELY HUNG UP. I scheduled my day around a 30 second phone call.

    I've never had an interview process that was so incredibly flaky and unprofessional. I was asked for an interview in another IPS building around the same time as my 30 second phone call and I politely said no. I wasn't going to go through something like that again when I was already offered a job.
