Great standards, training, and upward mobility. I went from entry level to program specialist with great guidance and grooming. Loved it.
It can be very high stress and sometimes a bit rigid when it comes staff expectations which is understandable when you are upholding high standards but sometimes not practical and can make turnover increase.
I applied online. I interviewed at Northside Independent School District (San Antonio, TX) in October 2017.
I was interviewed by 3 people. I was highly qualified for the position. I had the credentials, network, and experience. This was a niche position. Very few people would have the qualities this position required. Since I had worked with the refugee community for 5 years in the city I knew most stakeholders involved in helping refugees. The interviewer was very strange and the questions were stilted. I was acquainted with one of the interviewers because I had worked with her before. When I asked about the hours the interview seemed to go south. I was told I would be working more the 40 hours and would be working some nights and weekends as well. I asked about compensation and I was told, "well, not really. there might be some flex time." I asked if I could be given the percentage of time that would be nights and weekends. I explained I would need to make arrangements. (I'm single raising a child alone) I was told because it was a new position they had no idea what percentage of nights and weekends I would need to work. I asked if I could have the "flex-time" policy given to me in writing. I was told I could probably get it from HR. I was told they would contact my reference and if I got the job I would be called that day. They never bothered to contact my reference and I received an email about a week later telling me someone else had been chosen for the position. I contacted one of the interviewers by email and asked what If she had suggestions on how I could better interview in the future. She never replied.
