    Civil Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Durham, NC
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Durham, NC
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at City of Durham, North Carolina in January 2008.

    Interview Details

    Very slow and entangled. Government jobs are notorious for long processes and redundant protocols, and this process was no exception.

    Initial communications fell through the cracks. It was necessary to contact HR many times, and eventually the hiring official directly.

    The people, office environmental, and work culture are superior to all other employers I have experienced.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    Negotiation was very limited, but the hiring official fought for the most possible. There are limits enforced by government officials that are not involved in the determination of salary, so one can only do so much.
