    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at City of Salem Oregon in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by the City of Salem for an interview in April 2001. We did a phone interview and I was invited for a second interview. I was employed by a staffing agency and worked for the City on a temporary basis. I saw a job opening and applied. I just happened to know Barbara Brown, a former employee of Ulven Forging which is where my husband works. Dave Hauser, the Chief Accountant spoke with my former supervisor from Mary F Brown EA and decided to make me a job offer. He was an excellent supervisor.
