    Regulatory Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tallahassee, FL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tallahassee, FL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Florida Department of Health.

    Interview Details

    Apply at myflorida.com. Wait for phone call or email. Skills test before or after interview. Sell yourself during interview. Hope for call back or expect to find rejection email in mail box. Do not be discouraged. Often times there is already an internal applicant in the office deserving of a promotion who will get the job. Or the hiring manager already has a friend or relative, or friend of a friend in the applicant pool. However, you may be lucky to find a manager with few friend who are already employed, and an office staff who know better than to apply for that particular job, leaving you with an actual chance of getting the position.

    DOH - FACILITIES SERVICES MANAGER II - SES - 64054365 - FORT LAUDERDALE Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Fort Lauderdale, FL
    Anonymous Employee in Fort Lauderdale, FL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Florida Department of Health in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied on line and about a month later I was called for an interview. They told me to show up the next day without much notice. I arrived on time but it took them a while to call me in. It consisted of a three person panel composed of diverse backgrounds.

    They read a list of about 10 questions that were improperly structured and you could tell that they were put together without any significant order and were just going to be used as part of justifying documentation.

    I had a hard time understanding one of the interviewing managers as his English skills seem quite limited. One of them explained to me that they were interviewing 10 candidates and three would be called for behavioral interviewing. I was never called, so I can not tell you about that part of the process.
