    • If I was familiar with the Design-Build Delivery System.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    The negotiation phase was not extensive as I would be starting at a pre-determined government pay scale made clear in the advertisement. I could have been raised a step or two on the pay scale if I had been making more within the prior 6 months. Unfortunately with the economic turndown in September 2008, I was not making significantly more than the starting level of the Grade 12. However, it was made clear that steps within the grade and a raise to Grade 13 level depending upon my performance. True to this, I progressed rapidly from Grade 12 to Grade 13.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at CDC (Atlanta, GA) in April 2009.

    Initial over the phone interview. Called back for a personal interview. It was a panel of seven(7) people; various posts at CDC. I asked as many questions as I was asked. Peaked their interest and was initially hired. Thoroughly enjoyed the panel interview myself. Would do it again. Took the edge off just dealing or trying to please one person.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at CDC (Atlanta, GA) in January 2009.

    Interview

    I was contacted via phone and set up an interview for the week after. I didn't know how many people I would be interviewing with, but speaking with three people in a group interview ended up not being that big of a deal. My interviewers were very friendly and answered all of my questions thoroughly. The place was very relaxed and people clearly got along well with one another, and were nothing but entirely friendly and helpful (and not in a fake way!) from the first interview until the point that I changed jobs.

    Interview Questions

    • Have you ever had a problem dealing with a coworker or superior, and how did you resolve the issue?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I was pleasantly happy with their offer, so I didn't feel the need to negotiate. But I think they're pretty flexible and understanding about it.
