    Case Manager, Region III Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Georgia Division of Family and Children Services in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online in January 2014 and was contacted in July 2014. I realize that's a long time, however each region operates differently as far as the hiring process and regions with higher turnover hire more quickly and more frequently than regions that have less turnover. The initial contact from DFCS is in the form of an email inviting you for an interview (as a new MSW grad, I know quite a few new hires and this is the way in which everyone was initially contacted regardless of county/region). After responding to the email and accepting the interview, the first interview was with the County Director and a Program Consultant. It took about 2 weeks for them to contact me again and set up a second interview (panel interview with 4 DFCS supervisors - 2 from Foster Care and 2 from CPS - as well as the Program Consultant from the first interview), and I was contacted same day of the second interview and made an offer of employment.
