    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at NYC Department of Human Resource Administration.

    Interview

    The first round interview was short- it was scheduled for 30 minutes. I was interviewed by two members of the department who were friendly and informative. They had a list of 5 standard questions they were asking everyone. There were no curve balls. The questions were extremely fair. The entire interview process seemed long as I was told I'd receive the results of the first round 3 weeks after the interview.

    Easy Interview

    Interview

    Easy interview from what I remember. No challenging questions at all, hiring is based on an open competitive civil service exam and you aren't exactly working with Einstein's. You meet with lower level managers who ask you about 5 questions then they make a decision on the spot.

    Interview Questions

    • There are no really difficult behavioral questions, they pretty much just ask you about your prior work experience and ask how the skills you have would be transferable.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Salary dependent on civil service title.

    Telephonic + In Person Interview The telephone interview questions were very basic, and was easy to crack. The face to face interview was more focussed on the kind of work that I have been doing. They also asked me about the most challenging work I have done.

    Interview

    Short interview with basic behavior questions. Unpaid summer legal internship so it was not very stressful or serious on either end. Met with two attorneys who were both very friendly and open about the working atmosphere. I was allowed to choose my own hours.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at NYC Department of Human Resource Administration (New York, NY) in June 2014.

    Interview

    They asked me a couple of questions about my coursework and why I wanted to be there. They seemed more excited that an Ivy league student would want to intern there than actually caring about what I said. There were no technical questions or anything like that. I was only there for less than an hour.

    Pretty Routine. Hiring Manager called me and I met with the head IT guy. They wanted people fluent in web development, particulary javascript and php. He looked at my resume and asked routine questions.."Why did I get into computer science etc?" The funny thing is that they never got back to me.
