    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Florida Department of Children and Families.

    Interview Details

    There was a panel interview and then a computer test. The computer test was basically testing what you would do as an investigator in some scenarios. The panel interview was pretty standard and asked about relevant experience and how you stay organized. Some of the questions were very lengthy.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Florida Department of Children and Families in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    The whole process took about 6 weeks. First you have to take a test. The test consists of all math questions. You have to pay attention to the questions, thats where the reading comprehension and analysis comes into play. In my opinion, the test was pretty easy. I didn't get to complete one question and I still passed. You have 30 minutes to take the test. If you pass the test, then you get an interview. The interview was pretty easy. "What makes you succeed?' "How do you handle irate customers?" Those are some of the types of questions that they will ask. You will also be filling paperwork as well. After interview, they will look over all interviews to pick top applicants. If you are one the top applicants you will be asked to do a fingerprint. Please do not lie on the application. they will be able to tell. If you pass, then more paperwork to be filled and faxed or scanned then emailed to them. The job offer. After the interview everything else is easy, just a slow process. I believe that if you pass the interview and have a clean background, or your offense does not disqualify you, then you basically have the job.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Florida Department of Children and Families in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    Met with 2 managers - they were nice. Interview consisted of 20 standard questions followed by 2 "skills assessments" on the computer. One skill assessment was 10 questions about the Medicaid/APD waiver programs OR about Food stamps benefits (specific questions, knowledge based) and the other assessment was "here's a fact pattern, write a final order." No research was supposed to be done for either skill assessment - it was based on what you already know. 1 hour to complete both. Position requires some travel and a yearly financial disclosure.
