    Program Services Evaluator I Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at State of Arizona.

    Interview

    The interview process was actually quite good. We were given prior information about the type of interview to expect. There was a very experienced person present which helped a lot. The other person turned out to be my boss. It was quite clear the less experienced interviewer relied too heavily upon the supplied information and just as clear that this person was unsure of meanings of words. I probably should have known right then that it was going to be uncomfortable working with this person, and it most certainly is. I have never worked for anyone so incapable.

    Interview Questions

    • 'Tell about a time you disagreed with your boss, how you handled it and what was the outcome.'   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There was none.
