    Interview

    Application/interview/written sample/transcript/fingerprinting/security clearance/criminal record search. Interview conducted by three managers. Written sample is a soft ball toss that is designed to see if you can write significantly beyond the standard form "list three things, explain the three things, summarize the three things" formula taught in school. As one manager said, "if we see that you can write well, we think you might be able to think well."

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at State of Florida in May 2014.

    Interview

    Applied online and received a phone call several weeks later for an in person interview with others attending via web conference. The interview process was very behavioral. Everyone got one hour exactly and the same, exact questions were asked of every candidate. The job I interviewed for were not the core competency of the people interviewing me. The questions they asked showed that. Someone that is a good actor could possibly fool them into a job offer. This was the most concerning part for me. I do hope they hired an experienced consultant to assist.
