Very Difficult Interview
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 days - interviewed at City of Raleigh in May 2008.
Interview Details – All government hiring requires a drug and background test. I participated in a Panel interview, but not all employees undergo this process. It is at the discretion of the hiring manager and senior management.
I completely botched the interview, except for the part where I convinced the City I was talented and dedicated enough to see the internship through. New hires are evaluated on ability and experience first, personality and drive second, and ability to show up in clothing third.
Interview Question – Where do you see yourself in five years? View Answer
Negotiation Details – I didn't negotiate, the salary for the position was fixed by the intern program.
I will say this though: aim high. Your salary for your entire tenure at the City of Raleigh is based on your starting salary. Merit increases were insignificant and a major contribution to my decision to leave, cost of living was canned during the financial crisis, and longevity pay has been dramatically reduced from what it once was. What you make the entire time you work for the City is going to reflect that starting salary.
