Getting an Interview
Program Assistant Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Colorado Department of Health Care Policy and Financing in April 2008.

Trust Officer Interview (Neutral Experience)

Interview Details – Employment with the state is a lengthy process. Expect a 3 months from the time you submit your application to interview.

Then they interview the top three candidates based on the scores of your test.

Analyst Interview (Neutral Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took 4 months - interviewed at Colorado Department of Health Care Policy and Financing.
Interview Details – The application process included submitting written responses to questions outlining specific qualifications. The questions were appropriate to the job. I had a single interview, but none of the interviewers were my to-be supervisor, which I didn't find out until the day I started. The time between application and start date was almost 4 months, which was difficult while I was unemployed. [This is more a function of the personal system of the State, as dictated by the Constitution.]
Interview Question – I don't recall. None of the questions were particularly difficult as I was well-qualified for the position. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – I was offered essentially the minimum range of the salary. I countered with something near the top end based on my experience. It was accepted.
