    Pros

    Job security, able to transfer easily, largest district in Louisiana so many opportunities are possible, many professional development opportunities, time off.

    Cons

    Frozen wages for several years. We are given one time payments in certain cases but unfortunately this is not the same as a yearly increase. I think people transfer to other parishes due to this situation.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Jefferson Parish Public School System (Harvey, LA) in November 2014.

    Interview

    I went to the Teacher Recruitment Fair which was fairly organized. I received a list of positions that were available at all of the schools and was allowed to sign up for as many interviews as I wanted. I opted to interview for 4 schools. There were quite a few people at the event. I only saw three individuals get offers on the spot. I interviewed for a position that was opening in the near future and was told they would keep my information. Two weeks later, I received an offer by phone which I accepted.
