    Investigator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at State of Connecticut.

    Interview Details

    The interview was set up within a couple of weeks of submitting the application, however, the decisions for the applicants took about 2 months. The interview itself was not as expected in that there were 4 people in the interview (all supervisors) and only 1 person was asking the pre-scripted questions. There was no allowance for the interviewee to ask questions. The other 3 people in the room just took notes.

    IMS Database Administrator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hartford, CT
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hartford, CT
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at State of Connecticut in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    The interview consists of canned questions, the exact same questions asked of everybody. The IT department is so concerned with lawsuits the questions are essentially useless to weed out prospective candidates. The hiring process is, to be blunt, crazy... if you aren't already on a list for a department your resume will not be viewed by anyone, thus the state often won't even recognize when a potentially good employee has applied. Sometimes the application passed along to the hiring manager doesn't even match the position requirements... which is inefficient at best, insane at worst.

    Interview Questions
    • None. there were none of the usual questions asked of potential corporate employees (such as "What is your biggest weakness?"). Instead, managers have to assess the potential of the employee based solely on their answers to specific technical questions... there is no way to assess whether the potential employee would be a good fit with the organization.   Answer Question

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Wethersfield, CT
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at State of Connecticut in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    I had an interview 4 people, one person being the director for the department. The interview began by going over the my previous experience. The questions focused on one of my previous positions that was held over 2 years ago. The questions were not hard, you should go over computer science 101 and the basic definitions. They went through a sheet of questions that you can probably pass by getting a book that goes over interview questions on .NET, SQL Server and AJAX. I would have done well if I had prepared. The asked simple questions such as what is inheritance, overloading, etc. I was expecting to go through solving a problem, but this never occurred.
