    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Oklahoma Department of Human Services (Tulsa, OK).

    Interview

    they asked scripted questions to every person interviewing, and then give you one math question to answer. interviewers appeared bothered if you asked questions regarding the job or the interview process. people were nice but unapproachable.

    Interview Questions

    Reasons for Declining

    no face to face contact with the public, all the work would have been on the phone. not a challenging enough position. for someone right out of school, would probably be a good starting point.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Oklahoma Department of Human Services.

    Interview

    Interviewed for this position three different times. It seems as if there is a high turnover rate. At this point I think it might have been a blessing in disguise that I did not get this job. Working with people concerning the two most important things in their life, their kids and their money.
