    Corrections Agent Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at State of South Dakota.

    Interview Details

    There were two interviews, one with the director of the department and the second with a panel of three. The State doesn't open their positions to internal applicants first so there is a lot of unneccesary work. Often an internal applicant receives the position in a lateral transfer anyway- therefore there essentially wasn't really a position available to the "public." Of course the jobs that are left without anyone transfering are the ones that no one else wants to do!

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at State of South Dakota in January 2012.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and got a phone call to schedule an interview approximately 2 weeks later. The interview consisted of 3 people (Manager, Director, & Human Resources.) The Manager conducted the interview with some input from the Director and Human Resources personnel. All 3 were very professional and I was offered the job at the end of the interview.
