Program Specialist I Interview

Application Details

I applied through other source. The process took a dayinterviewed at State of Texas in June 2011.

Interview Details

I had to sit in a cubicle and take a skills test which consisted of creating several spreadsheets with different graphs. It was fairly difficult in the amount of time they gave me - I think they wanted it to be a situation where you really couldn't finish in time, to see what you thought would be the most important elements of the task. Then I had the panel interview. There were three gentlemen on the panel, and one HR rep who did all the talking. It was a non-interactive interview, meaning no one could ask me questions or talk to me. The HR rep gave me a binder that had around 11 interview questions that I would first read, then respond to. I was given an amount of time (around 45 minutes) in which to answer all of my questions, and I had to watch my own time. The panel had check lists of things that they checked off while I talked and wrote notes. It was very structured and formal. Memorizing the official job opening notice and touching on all of those elements appears to be the key to doing well in a state of Texas job interview.
