Interview Details – First you have to set up a profile on the State of Nevada website because this is the only way to apply for jobs. It takes a while but it is nice in the long run if you end up applying for multiple jobs because most of your information is saved. The next step is to apply for specific jobs. Sometimes you have to answer a specific set of questions, sometimes you have to take a job specific test and sometimes you do nothing. The application then gets accepted or rejected and if the application looks good enough an interview is scheduled. Interviews are panel based and always consist of a predetermined set of questions. The interview seems to be set up to remove personality from the interview panel which is good in some ways because it ensures everybody gets a similar interview experience.
Interview Question – Name a time you dad to deal with a conflict and what you did about it? View Answer
Reason for Declining – The citizens of Nevada do not support state workers. Sadly this feeling is shared by the current governor and state workers have become popular fodder for angry citizens who want the economy to do better but don't want to have to make any sacrifices themselves. Instead of having to pitch in themselves to help the economy too many Nevada citizens want to trash state employees and slash their salaries. The governor is more then willing to accommodate this sentiment and the state is losing qualified employees because of it.

Interview Details – Applied through the central State hiring agency, the Dept of Personnel. Received a call setting up a time/place for an interview several weeks later. Interview was by two IT Professionals that quized me on a combination on manager type questions "How would you handle employee X that does Y" and deep technical questions "You are doing X, Y, & Z something else happens then you recieve this error - what do you do?". I didn't get all answers correct but a majority of them. They said to expect to hear back in about 10 days. Recieved a call about three days later offering the position.
