    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at US District Court, Eastern District of Michigan in February 2008.

    Interview Details

    I interviewed with a panel of managers that I would be providing services for. It was very well put together. I also had to generate work samples. Everyone regardless of the position applied for has to take a Wonderlic test - quite funny - not hard. It was pass / fail so you never know what you scored. I thought the position description, entire process, and the staff I met was excellent. I received very meaningful insight and got to meet those that I would be doing work for.

    Interview Questions
    • It was not a question but rather develop a plan for the Court. No specific information or scenarios were given.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    Yes, I was able to negotiate within the posted pay range listed on the job requirement. Jobs for most public positions and within the federal sector are governed by job classification and steps within the classification so increases when given fall within the step increases. Bonuses are pretty much non existent however the judiciary is implementing a performance plan which could lead to small bonuses or bigger step increases but I do not have confidence that this will be fully implemented like the private sector.

    The process can and does differ from district to district based on the autonomous structure.
