I worked at New York City Department of Education full-time (More than 3 years)
Extremely rewarding, opportunities for growth, challenging, organized, great pay, excellent benefits, unparalleled union
Job can be overwhelming at times, not every school provides support necessary for students' and employees' success, too much work to be done outside of work hours
Advice to Management
Focus more on the success of the students (provide more supplies, hire more staff, offer more paid staff development opportunities, stop focusing on enrollment count) as opposed to worrying about the budget
I applied online. I interviewed at New York City Department of Education.
one interview and demo lesson, offered the position immediately following the demo lesson and then it took two weeks for the HR info to get organized...the commute to Brooklyn is rough and very crowded, however pretty easy after that. The pay step and salary scale takes some time to process and won't be handled until March.
