I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Texas Department of Public Safety in March 2012.

You undergo a detailed background investigation overseen by a state trooper (records checks, associate interviews, employer interviews, home visit, etc). Then you go to work.

Assistant Mitigation Officer Interview

Assistant Mitigation Officer
Austin, TX

I applied in-person and the process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at Texas Department of Public Safety.

Interview Details – I was interviewed by a hiring board made up of senior and junior members of the division. I was asked and open question about myself and what work I had done before. Then I was asked six questions about how I respond to different work situations. These were not terribly related to the position I was hired for.
