I'm curious which district you applied with. I was sent an
email from DPS on February 4 requesting a phone interview. I
replied with some times that would be convenient, but I never
received a confirmation. I sent another follow-up email
several days later and still got no response. Finally, last
Friday I phoned the recruiter that sent the original email and
left a voice mail, and I still have not received a response. I
don't know what to think now.
