    Disability Claims Adjudicator Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Columbus, OH
    Anonymous Employee in Columbus, OH
    Application Details

    I interviewed in-person. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Ohio Rehabilitation Services Commission in April 2009.

    Interview Details

    written civil service exam; if pass then a written portion of an interview, and then a panel of supervisors (approximately 6-8) that all ask very standardized questions, all write down each of your responses, and then grade/compare your responses to "benchmarks" or criteria that are already established for the job description. This is supposed to be as objective as possible, but have learned from experience that it is far from this.

    Interview Questions
    • There were agency-specific questions about federal & state rules/regulations, how past experience qualifies you for the current job application (i.e. communication, organization, program knowledge, use of resources, support to other supervisors, documentation expectations, time/claim processing expectations, ability adjust for multiple demands, openness to change, ability to remain flexible with agency changes, training ability.

      The "question" is a 5 minute presentation of how all of your skills learned are applied to current job demands and the potential job environment. Making sure to mention all or most of the qualities/benchmarks on the predetermined list that each of the supervisors have in front of them and then explain how your current skills incorporate into the pre-determined benchmarks. For each cycle of hiring, these benchmarks vary in an effort to avoid staff from sharing answers from the applicant (more relevant to internal job applications).

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Columbus, OH
    Application Details

    I interviewed online - interviewed at Ohio Rehabilitation Services Commission in August 2008.

    Interview Details

    Multiple step process. Your first step is a test asking questions about basic medical knowledge. Any reasonably educated person should do fine, but there are some tricky ones. After you pass that, you go on to a second test with more specific questions. If you pass that, you move on the the interview round. The interview is a brief introduction of yourself, talk about your skills, education, etc. Then the two interviewers will ask you a standard set of questions that are the same for each candidate. They are looking for specific key words in your answers. Don't be surprised when they don't say anything or even make eye contact when you're answering. They're listening to your answers and checking their list for the keywords.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing is really difficult or out of the ordinary. Most questions involve how organized you are, how you deal with stress, how you get along with others, things like that. Your basic behavioral HR questions.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    There is no negotiation. This is a government agency, new hires make the same amount regardless of experience or education. We have people with bachelor's degrees and people with PhD's and they all make the same. They are not permitted to negotiate due to the union contract.
