What tips or advice would you give to someone interviewing at Hawaii State Department of Education?
It is best to work as a teacher in Hawaii Public Schools if one is from the island or single with no dependents. If not from the island, then having a network of support is crucial. The salaries are so low that a single person with a child or children cannot provide for him or herself and child(ren). The network of support will allow you to do what you love as a teacher and earn a salary not commensurate with the cost of living on Hawaiʻi Island.
What is the vacation policy like at Hawaii State Department of Education? How many vacation days do you get per year?
No paid vacations but you can take off when needed with advance notice.
If you were in charge, what would you do to make Hawaii State Department of Education a better place to work?
I would redesign the HI DOE employment website application, so that professionals that are re-applying would not have to waste their time filling in the application over and over again.
