I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at State of Minnesota in March 2011.
Interview Details – Contracted through an agency. Passed pre-interview test of 10 questions related to ASP.net over the phone. Single in person interview with business manager, IT director, and lead developer. Got a call the next week.
Negotiation Details – Simple. Contract was negotiated for me.
The process took a day - interviewed at State of Minnesota in October 2011.
Interview Details – The interview panel consisted of a senior and mid-level manager. Both appeared bored an uninterested the moment I came into the room, presumably because they had conducted several other interviews before mine. It was not a comfortable situation and my attempts to make small talk and to get them interested in what I could bring to the position fell flat. At one point I wanted to just walk out! Very demoralizing to realize that my interviewers were just going through the motions because they wanted to get to lunch, instead of carefully and fairly considering my qualifications for the position!
