    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Arizona Department of Transportation in January 2015.


    Got a call and they ask some basic interview questions about your experience and such than ask if you are still interested in interviewing, they will send an email to you with a generic application, keep this if you have applied for any other state jobs, the attachments will vary but this you can save an print as needed. Interviewed by a manager and a supervisor they both ask a series of 8 questions, interviews last about 20-30 mins.

    Starting pay is $13.06 an hour and you will not get a raise until you complete training in 6-9 months. You than go to $14.06 and you must contribute to the Arizona retirement system after 27 weeks, this is 10% of your paycheck before taxes. Was not worth it for how far I was driving.
