    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at City of Salem Oregon (Salem, OR) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Filled out application online. About 1 week after job closed I was emailed and asked to submit a supplemental questionnaire. About 2 weeks later I received a phone call to schedule an interview. When I arrived I was seated in the office area and one of the interviewees came and escorted me to a conference room. There was a panel of three people taking turns asking questions. A total of six questions were asked and the interview was scheduled for about 30 minutes. I was told at the interview 400 applications were received and that they were interviewing 26 candidates with no second interviews. The employees were very nice and one member escorted me to the front of the library when the interview concluded.
