    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Phoenix, AZ
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 days - interviewed at City of Phoenix in January 2010.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process usually entails two panel interviews, and, depending on the position, a skills test. Interviews contains both relevant technical and behavioral questions. Most behavioral questions revolve around leadership, management, and conflict resolution.
    As with any interview, your image is very important -- wear a suit, be punctual, and relax.

    Negotiation Details
    I was able to negotiate on salary, but usually the offer process does not present that option. Candidates are hired at the low end of the position range. You must take the initiative and engage in negotiations prior to accepting the position. The worse that can happen is that they'll say no; at that point is up to you to accept or move on to the next opportunity.
