    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Florida Department of Education in January 2010.

    Interview Details

    Employ Florida website keyword skills search resulted in first phone interview with hiring manager. This went very well although I learned little about the actual job. Brought in for a one on one with same manager followed by a team interview where 2 other managers and a key coworker were asking different questions. The questions were simple open ended and were not structured or prepared. It appeared very casual and probably not consistent for all candidates. It was possible to lead the interview but that would not be the case for others.

    At the time, the culture seemed very cordial and team oriented, almost too informal. A lot of retirement turnover followed new benefit restrictions, and others moved upwards within the department, over 50% in a year. Due to contract issues, the contractor also had very high turnover during this period, that has stabilized. The result is a quite young and inexperienced group, in my opinion, relative to the high profile of the work.

    The office and DOE in general are female predominant at all levels, an unusual and welcome regard for females in management, but also consistent with sexist attitudes in K-12 education in general. IT seems to be still a male dominated area.

    Negotiation Details
    Negotiated to highest salary available for position required special approvals that took months to accomplish, salary accepted was still below market at the time.
