    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Arkansas DHS (Little Rock, AR) in October 2014.

    Interview

    after submitting my cover letter and resume I had an interview with two people, I had a call back interview with a supervisor. I was asked about my past experience and I thought that they were fairly receptive and polite. I never felt like I was "stumped." In fact I had the opinion that they often hired people that they might have had misgivings about during the interview. You know that part in Harry Potter when Dumbledore says why he hired Trelawney despite the fact that he thought she was crazy.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Arkansas DHS (Bentonville, AR) in October 2013.

    Interview

    I got the call for interview 2-3 weeks after applying. The interview was held in a conference room at the Holiday Inn in Springdale. There was about 7 other people. I sat at a table and filled out a thick packet of paperwork, information needed after hiring including tax information, background check consent, traffic history consent, etc. There is also a paper with 5 questions about your experience working with families and a couple "What would you do?" questions. They played a 15-minute video and once all that was done, I was called to another room where the interview took place. It was one-on-one. Be prepared for behavioral interview questions. The whole thing lasted 2 hours, with the actual interview portion only about 15-20 minutes long.

    Interview Questions

    Family Service Worker Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fayetteville, AR
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 8 weeksinterviewed at Arkansas DHS (Fayetteville, AR) in September 2009.

    Interview

    They ultimately want to know if you're an honest person and if you have integrity. You will fill out a paper where you explain what you would do in certain situations. You will then get to ask questions. This position just needs dedicated warm bodies. You truly must want to help the children you are there to protect otherwise, it's just not worth it. You need to be a workhorse. Organization is key to this job. Time management to the Nth degree is a priority. It is easy to get this job. It is not so easy to stay afloat once you have it. The hiring process takes many weeks because once the supervisor wants to offer you a job, they have to get approval from Little Rock. Then they can call you and get a drug screen. Then wait again....then it's a go. The hiring individual is very weary and if you sound like a person who can help take some of the load off her back, then you will be viewed favorably. Have confidence. Let them know you will do what needs done without waiting until someone tells you to do it.

    Negotiation
