    Difficult Interview


    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Oregon Department of Corrections.


    I applied in August and was contacted almost 3 months later to schedule an interview. The job is posted for locations throughout the state at any time. An HR person will contact you to fill out pre-interview materials that will need to be completed and sent back before the interview, or brought with you to the interview.

    Interview Questions

    • They ask 8 specific questions. The most challenging, if you aren't specifically prepared for them are:
      What are the diagnostic criteria for Bipolar I disorder?
      What are the 4 modules of DBT and give a couple examples of skills from each module?
      How do you assess for suicidality and need for constant observation with an inmate that has attempted to hang himself?
      How do you determine if am inmate is malingering?
      They also ask:
      Have you ever felt like you have been treated unfairly and if you have, how did you handle it?
      Describe your experience working in a prison or jail with inmates.
      Would you rather be liked or feared by an inmate?

      I can't remember the last questions, but it was an easy one :)
