    Typical questions, nothing too serious. Interview questions were mainly explaining your past employment and what skills you learned there. There is a math sample that you gave to take and pass.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Florida Department of Children and Families (Orlando, FL) in May 2015.

    Interview

    The job was posted I applied I passed the math but missed the typing by one point. Was so upset. So the job posted again applied and within a couple of days was called and asked if I was still interested I said yes. Took the test they sent me and thought I had to take the test again this time but didnt have to. The lady was so sweet by the way that assisted the prospects before the test or interview. She made me feel comfotable. Forgot her name though. But she assured me not to be nervous. When I walked in she was like dont I know you and I said yes remember I missed the typing test by one point. She was like I felt so bad. Glad you came back. I told her i was persistent about coming back. Anyway I was nervous throughout the whole interview and I made that clear to the interviewers. It was two of them. They were very nonchalant, it was a total of 6-8 questions I believe. And as you responded they wrote down what you said on the question sheet and checked off boxes on the paper. Still awaiting to hear back. One of the interviewers which was a guy and a lady, he walked me out and to the elevator. Said they would be sending my application and interview responses to management and I will hear back from them once they reached a decision. Not quite sure what that means.

    Interview

    Sample test required passing score if 25 to continue on. Was contacted by phone approximately 2 weeks later for face to face interview. Lengthy interview and interviewer wrote every word answered down by hand. Asked about ability to handle heavy stressful workload. Was informed that position has potential for telecommuting. Was contacted again 1 week later for fingerprinting. Waited another 10 days and was contacted by phone with offer. Did not receive proposal by email until about 3 weeks later. Very lengthy process and each step involved a different person.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Florida Department of Children and Families in March 2015.

    Interview

    Had a two hour skills test. Unfortunately the skills test was in part, on things NOT listed as part of the position. I cannot give you an example without disclosing it. You will be expected to stay in the room all two hours (if needed) without a bathroom or water break. If you leave the test is over. Test said to bring a calculator, I went out and bought one, but one was provided. I tested with two current employees applying for the same job. There were some no shows. the top four scorers were supposed to be selected for the interview. There were three of us. We were all there at the end...meaning no one completed before the end of time. I was not selected for the interview. Told I did not meet minimum 70%. If I had advance notice of what was on the skills test I would have been able to pass with flying colors. I am NOT happy. I read the glass door interview(s). Nothing was mentioned..so perhaps they added this on skills test and removed another part of test...but failed to update the job description.
