Very Easy Interview
I applied online and interviewed at MAXIMUS.
Interview Details – Contacted via telephone for a "phone screen". Lasted approximately 5 minutes. Was told I would be contacted in 3 weeks. Two days later I was contacted by a guy who asked if I would be available for an "in person, panel interview in one week". The next day, the same guy called me and conducted the second interview via telephone. The next day I was contacted and asked to appear at the department of labor for an interview. Two days later, I interviewed with two operations managers. The interview lasted 5 minutes and I was offered the position at the interview.
The interview questions were typical behavioral questions. For example, "tell us abouot a time when you didn't get along with a supervisor...how did you handle it?" Another question, "Tell us about a time when you had to deal with a difficult customer". These were the exact same questions asked on the phone interviews.

I applied online - interviewed at MAXIMUS in October 2013.
Interview Details – On-line app; phone interview; face to face interview and testing with temp agency; then a face to face with employer. After the major corporation I worked for eliminated many middle management positions and pushed duties downward on the administrative staff, our office of 20 or so, organized our own work teams and structured our work so that no one individual was overburdened. Such things as family needs of children and aging parents were considered with workloads. We were productive and relatively satisfied for the next several years until the company was sold to a foreign company and we all lost our jobs. Yet an amazing accomplishment.
