    Tax Auditor III Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at State of Delaware in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online on the State of Delaware website, was contacted two weeks later to set up a telephone interview. The online application was pretty concise, gave a broad view of what was expected, but was different from what the job was described to be once the interview began. So essentially, do not rely on the questions posed in the online screening.

    Interview Questions
    • There was a question asked about bank franchise tax, which is something I am not thoroughly familiar with, but other than that, the questions were the average customer service and analytical skills questions. I was told that the position was more about overseeing procedures as well as policy development which is right up my ally so I'm excited and I was also told that I would be contacted again in two weeks for a second interview.   View Answer
    • Describe audit controls and how you have handled/prepared for them?   View Answer

    Reasons for Declining

    UNPROFESSIONAL AND WRONG! I accepted the offer at first by the business support administrator. I was told HR was going to get in contact with me. I waited two weeks after giving two weeks notice to my job.I was called a day before I was to start that my start date was changed to, two more weeks. One week passes and I never received a call or email. I contacted the business administrator and she informs me that now I don't have a start date and that HR has not got in contact with her. I emailed her back and told her nevermind and I decline the offer now. I would never work for a place that would lead you on with no intention of hiring you. I was lucky to get my job back, but I feel for others who left a job for a lie like the state of delaware does to job seekers. This place is unprofessional and wrong. They don't treat people like humans. BEWARE!!

    The process took a weekinterviewed at State of Delaware in July 2011.

    Interview Details

    I applied on that state of Delaware Employment Link website where all government jobs are posted. I was called in for an interview, there were about 8 people interviewing for the position. The interview was a group interview with 3 managers. I was given a sheet of paper with questions on it which we went through one by one. I was then asked if I had anymore questions and then the interview was over. I was called a couple days later and asked to come for a second interview with the Director and manager of my section. I was called later that day and offered the job. In all the process took about a week to a week and a half.
