A district contacted my wife to arrange a Skype interview. They proposed 10AM. She replied that she's in class during the day, and suggested "4PM on that or any other day, although 4:15 would be more comfortable." The district replied "3:30 is the latest we can do it on any day." What are they thinking??? They can't stay a half-hour later? That she didn't have some good reason to pick 4PM as the earliest? Do they want to hire a teacher who will find ways to blow off classes for some personal reason? Let me add that they just emailed her this morning, and she offered to come in person this Friday (purely by accident, she was going to be in their area, which is 400 miles from where she lives), and they said "Sorry, our HR person isn't available." I'm not criticizing them for not changing their schedule. How does a teacher interview at 3:30? (In her specific case, class ends at 3:05 but it takes her 30-40 minutes to get home, let alone a few minutes to hook up Skype and catch her breath and get composed.) I obviously don't understand something about this process. I wouldn't say that teaching job candidates get treated like a piece of meat. That would be insulting to butchers.
