Difficult Interview

IT Specialist Interview

Anonymous Employee
Washington, DC

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at HUD in August 2013.

Interview Details – I applied through USA jobs and I was referred for the job after 4 weeks and I interviewed 6 weeks total from the time I applied. I completed a telephonic interview with a board of 6 people working in my Department. The questions were specifically geared toward Oracle and Seibel operations as well as Project Management and Team collaborative skills. I found out I was hired approximately 1 week later and I was scheduled to begin work 2 months to the day after I applied for the job. The HR Specialist contacted me via email for all the inprocessing details which included a background and Orientation dates. Everything went as scheduled.

Interview Question – Do you have any knowledge of Oracle OBIEE or Seibel database configuration management?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Non-negotiable.
