    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at State of Georgia Department of Human Resources (Atlanta, GA) in December 2012.

    Interview

    Telephone call, then interview. Interview was with a 3 person panel. They each rotated questions about skills and agency values. Over all it was difficult because you received no feedback. As you are answering a question, all three of them would be writting your response word for word. No eye contact was made and no feedback was given.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7+ months. I interviewed at State of Georgia Department of Human Resources (Atlanta, GA) in October 2009.

    Interview

    The process was a long one. I applied for the position in September, interviewed in October, and was hired in April. The problem is that with government jobs, there are often hiring freezes and unfortunately, I got caught up in one, so I am not sure if this time frame is standard. The interview was pretty standard, I met with one person and then was invited back for a second interview with that same person and the director. They were polite and made me feel very comfortable, felt this was a good interview experience.

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation.

    There is no negotiation with regards to the pay unless otherwise noted in the job announcement.
