    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at Texas Department of Aging and Disability Services.

    Interview Details

    Be aware of what they tell you in the interview. Write down the salary when they tell it and confirm that number BEFORE you ever leave the interview room. They will tell you anything they feel you want to hear to get you to accept the job. They have a stupid amount of turn-over due to poor management/training/mentoring.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Texas Department of Aging and Disability Services in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied online on 9/05/2013 through a state website. I found out about the job from the state Work Force Dept. On 09/16/2013 I drove from San Antonio to Austin to interview for this job an another one. The campus was very green with bushes, large trees, and grass. The buildings were mostly very old. I drove around until I found the right building and then, a place to park. I was send upstairs for the interview. The door was right at the top of the stairs. Not very safe. I wandered around and found lots of storage rooms until someone asked me what I was looking for. He said "the same thing happened to me when I came to interview for a job." He showed me across a break room to where the offices were. I was given more forms to fill out and information to read. I sat at an old table in the break room to fill out my forms. I was interviewed by 2 ladies. I was given a very easy test to see if I could understand the instructions I would be given if I got the job. I had applied both for full time and part time so I was asked which I would prefer.

    QDDP III Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Austin, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at Texas Department of Aging and Disability Services in July 2012.

    Interview Details

    A panel of 3 interviewed me. The interviewers ran 30 minutes late and I was left to just wait around in some room. No one apologized about having me wait so long passed the scheduled interview appointment time. One of the interviewers had the audacity to knock me for being anxious - she was like, " is this how you are with your clients?" I thought to myself, "Ma'am, this is a COMPLETELY different dynamic!" A very rude and unempathetic bunch. I guess they only care about how smooth-talking someone is, not what they are actually capable of. I have a proven track record of success and deliver quality results. Their loss!
