    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at State of Wisconsin Department of Corrections (Oshkosh, WI) in July 2012.

    Interview

    The hiring process was very smooth although much longer than most jobs. If your application is accepted you will take a written test and upon successful completion will have a panel interview after. Interview is a mix of normal interview questions and scenario based questions. If you pass and get a job offer you will get to pick your location as long as the institution has vacancies. Overall the hiring process was very efficient and for good reason, as there are normally hundreds of applicants at any given time.
