Engineer III Interview

Engineer III

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at City of Richmond Virginia in February 2009.

Interview Details – You are called to schedule an interview, you show up (early to get a parking space nearby), you go before a panel of 3 or more who each take turns asking questions. The panel writes down notes while you speak and reviews your answers after you leave. The panel discusses each candidate and applies scores to each question. Each panel member's total scores are averaged and the selected candidate is called for second interview in my case. Days after the second interview the staff supervising the position calls you with an offer.

Negotiation Details – Not much room to negotiate. You are paid in line with others in that position.
