Technical Support Specialist-III Interview

Technical Support Specialist-III
Gainesville, FL

I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at City of Gainesville, FL.

Interview Details – Interview was a bit odd; they asked like 3 questions, and handed me a test, and walked off. I had nearly forgotten i applied for the job when i finally got a call back. Took about 3 months (no joke) from applying for it till i got a call to start.

Interview Question – The test had a trick question: it refered you to a specific standard to answer a question; but it was the wrong standard it refered you too. It was a sewer question, and refered you to the potable water standards.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – They basically told me that with my years of experience they could offer $22, which is about a $1.50 more then i expected.
