    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Dallas County.

    Interview Details

    Took place in the engine room. Head manager asked questions relating to what you know. He writes it all down. Somewhat intimidating atmosphere if you're not used to this. He wants to know you're technical skill relating to the position. Electronic tech deals with mechanical repair on doors, installing bulbs and ballast in light fixtures (277v),installation of exit lights (480v), changing air filters in air handlers, knowing basics about computer logic and how relays work., plumbing (unclogging drains using a snake,plunging toilets), Wielding is a + but not required. Also helps if you know how a closed loop system works for ac/heating (water in from reservoir, runs through filter, into a chiller etc). Know you're tools, tho only tools you will ever use will be, flat head, Phillips, wire stripper/cutters, tape measure, box cutter, ratchet (1/8th socket) and security bits (provided), rubber mallet, pliers, adjustable wrench. You have to provide you're own tools excluding security bits, drill bits.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation Details
    Pay was non negotiable, the salary analysis was done prior from going to the interview. Salary is based off of experience and education. Associate degree accounts for 4 years relevant experience. Bachelors is 8 years relevant, pay is adjusted accordingly. This rule of thumb goes for all positions in Dallas county. All full time employees get full benefits standard, 7% mandatory into 401k. Lost about $4 a hour after all benefits and taxes were taken out of check.

    Law Clerk Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at Dallas County in March 2011.

    Interview Details

    I thought the interviewer was very rude. The interview seemed to have nothing to do with any skills or talents, but mainly just the interviewer's impressions/misconceptions of who I was and what my political leanings were. Very strange altogether and pretty uncomfortable at points.

    Interview Questions
    • Their first question was for me to tell them something about myself that was not on my resume. It was just very unexpected.   Answer Question

I heard back within 4 days and was sent an official job offer via email. After accepting, I had to attend an orientation before starting training. The interview questions were very basic. "How would you handle an angry customer?" "How do you deal with pressure?"
