Human Resources Specialist Interview

Human Resources Specialist
Pittsburgh, PA

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at US Department of Veterans Affairs in June 2010.

Interview Details – Interview was a joke

Interview Question – Questions were formulaic and rote. It was clear, even that early in the game, that there was very little employee /labor relations experience in the room full of interviewers. The woman that became my supervisor after I was hired, had clearly been in the right place at the right time, with little to no competition, when she applied
for and landed her supervisor position.
  Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Little to no negotiation in the federal government
