Assistant State Auditor Interview

Assistant State Auditor
Tacoma, WA

I applied through other source and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Washington State Auditors in May 2010.

Interview Details – I was interviewed almost immediately approximately 2 days after I applied.

During the interviews, I was given a thorough understanding of the work the state auditor's office performs, the expectations of those that worked there and the ability to ask any and all questions I had about the opportunities available. Most of the auditors I interviewed with gave me their contact information and strongly encouraged me to call or email with any questions I had.

After my 2nd interview (during interviews I met all assistant audit managers and the audit manager) I was offered a job by the team's audit manager.

Interview Question – Provide examples of how you handled difficult situations with those you worked with   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Upfront, You know the salary range and benefits when you apply so there is no surprises there. The only negotiation I had was when I would start, they respected my giving 2 weeks notice to the job I left but communicated if I could start earlier they would welcome that too.

Assistant State Auditor Interview

Assistant State Auditor
Seattle, WA

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Washington State Auditors.

Interview Details – Interview is conducted using behavioral questions. Best to use the STAR method of answering. Be on time, do research on what they do before the interview - you will be asked if you know what they do. They have a website - don't say that you couldn't find any information. Dress professionally - not trendy, and, for women, no low-cut blouses. Look your questioner in the eye and answer the question that was asked. Don't try to BS the interviewers - after all they are auditors and fraud investigators. They know how to interview people and can tell when you are trying to manipulate them.

Interview Question – Can you give an example of a situation in which you successfully managed your time on multiple projects?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – There was no negotiation. It is a set salary.
