    Airport Operations Agent Interview

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

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Miami Dade County in April 2011.

    Interview Details

    The interview was very standard as it followed the procedures required for Miami Dade County. All the interviewers were very polite and were very clear in their line of questioning. My only issue was that their questions were formed with the purpose of weeding out anyone outside of their section. The questions were simple if you worked there, but since I didn't, I was completely clueless. They asked question about which radio frequencies are used, what color are certain lights out on the airfield, etc. All questions I could obtain the answer to in a matter of minutes on my first day on the job. But I understand the desire to promote from within so I wasn't too upset.

    Procurement Interview

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

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Miami Dade County in June 2008.

    Interview Details

    It is a loooong process.
    My first interview was about 10 weeks after they closed the application period.
    Second interview was about 4 weeks after the first interview.
    I was offered the position about 12 weeks after the last interview.
    Overall it was about 6 month process.

    I declined the offer when I learned from a former employee of that department that due to financial restraints the department would have to cut several position in near future.

    The interview process was very forward with 5 current employees who seemed more stressed than I was.
    They were obviously new to interviewing process and they asked all the "cliche" questions like:

    What is your strong point
    What is your weak point
    What in your previous job prepared you for this job
    etc.
    No surprises and nothing difficult.

    Interview Questions

    Reasons for Declining

    Learned that the department was going to have to down size in near future.
    Didn't want to be in the position of being the low one on the totem pole while down sizing.
