    Hiring process consists of first taking a state exam to qualify for the position. The exam is very basic, with general knowledge questions, a few Office software questions, and basic accounting. The opening was for the department of Taxation. The interview was somewhat dry with a list of questions. The same list is used for each candidate.

    Application Details

    The process took a day - interviewed at State of Nevada in January 2012.

    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.

    Reasons 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.
