    Pros

    Great standards, training, and upward mobility. I went from entry level to program specialist with great guidance and grooming. Loved it.

    Cons

    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Northside Independent School District (San Antonio, TX) in October 2017.

    Interview

    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.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions were not difficult or unexpected. They were prepared before hand and there was absolutely no back and forth between myself and the interviewers. It almost seemed like they didn't understand or were unfamiliar with the refugee community, experiential learning, organization behavior and the other subjects I was talking about. Throughout the interview they just seemed to stare at me blankly. Usually, interviews are a two-way street. There is discussion, clarification etc. This was the oddest most weirdly staged interview I have ever been involved in.   Answer Question
