I applied online and interviewed at Montgomery County Government - Maryland.

Interview Details – The interview was done by two employees. I gave them both my resume. They called back within a week and I interned with them for the whole summer from June - August 2011.

Interview Question – I cannot remember the most difficult or unexpected question they asked, but it was one of my first interviews, so I remember how I did not know what to expect at all.   Answer Question

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 6 months - interviewed at Montgomery County Government - Maryland.

Interview Details – They hired me because of a friend I had in the antiques business from my father, when he was alive, back in the year 1999. It took over 6 months till they contacted me for an interview and finally hired me. I was hired as "prn" without benefits. When I pursued a position with benefits, they said there was none, but then they hired a friend of mine, from Montgomery General Home Health, who had less experience than myself, and less education, and gave her higher pay AND benefits, because they liked her better. When I exposed this, later on, I was mistreated in the workplace for over 3 yrs.

Interview Question – none.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – I asked for higher pay, and the Nursing Director finally gave in and gave me ONE DOLLAR more than the starting pay.

Budget Analyst Interview

Budget Analyst

I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Montgomery County Government - Maryland in September 2011.

Interview Details – Found and applied for position through County website. After one month of status updates, received email to interview with 3-person panel. Was asked to bring three writing samples, including an Excel spreadsheet to demonstrate budgeting/accounting skills.

Interview questions were scripted and consisted of 9 questions.

1. Describe personal attributes, training, education, or skills for this position.
2. What do you like best/least about your current job?
3. How would others (co-workers, friends) describe you?
4. Describe experience with spreadsheet software (Excel) and databases (Access).
5. What strategies would you use to handle competing deadlines and working in a stressful environment?
6. How would you go about evaluating a budget proposal?
7. Describe public speaking experience.
8. What type of portfolio would you most prefer to work on?
9. Do you have any questions that we can answer?

Small, friendly atmosphere...excellent responses to my questions but interview was very scripted with little follow-up questions beyond the script. Advise that you speak as much as possible and provide details about work experience and technical skills.
