    Interview Details

    Applied on line. Application status changed from "received application" to "departmental reviewing". It has been 2 months and no updates. I called to follow up and was told cannot speak to hiring manager. I asked if position was still open and lady informed me she did not know. Asked her for advice on what to do. She said we are slow at hiring and just keep checking your status on line. Very frustrating and unprofessional on their part. If one is not qualified then change status to not qualified.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at City of Houston in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    Manager was late to the interview. She did not seem interested in interviewing me. It was like just part of a process that she had to follow. The job was reposted the day before my interview. My theory is if you are not really interested in hiring me, DONT waste my time. There were several people there on the same day to interview. One person left before me and one was waiting after me. They had no intention off hiring any of us.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at City of Houston in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    The position I applied for was posted in February and I received a call last week for an interview that was today (3/27/13). It was a panel a three. It wasn't intimidating at all. They talked about the position and questioned me on my skill and why that position. Afterwards, I took a writing test.

    If everything goes well, they will call me to speak with the supervisor over the position before they make a hiring decision.

    Financial Analyst II Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at City of Houston in June 2011.

    Interview Details

    filled out online application, got a call back after a month. person who scheduled my interview was very pleasant on the phone and worked with my schedule.
    interview was with two very friendly managers. questions were not very difficult, they went through my resume and admired my background and were really positive. however they said they would make a decision end of June and I never heard back from them. i wish they would let the candidate know either way so the candidate is not sitting and waiting around for a response.
