I have been working at New Canaan Public Schools as a contractor
Great district to work with
There are no cons here
I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at New Canaan Public Schools (New Canaan, CT) in July 2009.
The process began with me getting a telephone call from the department's secretary, not the main HR office. I was invited in for an interview at the main administration building which would be my first of four. They make a very good show of being thorough. The first interview was with about 5 people who sat around a conference table and took turns asking me questions. The questions were mostly about soft skills and it was clear they were watching me more just as much as listening to my answers.
I was invited back for a second interview with more people (some higher ups) and asked less than 3 technical questions one of which didn't make any sense and I got it "wrong".
My third interview was of a much more technical nature though I was never asked to demonstrate my ability, but was asked more about computing from an organizational perspective.
My final interview was with administrators including the Superintendent who meets every employee.
All in all, it was a 10-hour process.
