    Great opportunity to get experience with my master's degree, and to learn the inner workings of state government.

    I have been working at Georgia State Government full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good Pay, and some telework options. Interesting work, that requires higher level analyses. Great vacation and sick time available (Over three weeks of each per year). Little direct interaction with upper management.

    Cons

    Poor insurance benefits. Office environment can changes with new Directors (political appointees, often with very little direct experience). 3 years and yet to see a raise. Limited opportunities for professional training. Not much room for advancement unless you are politically connected.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Raises, opportunities to advance, and more opportunities for professional training would be nice.

    Court Support Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Georgia State Government in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online. Received a call a few months later asking if I were still interested and would be available for an interview the next day. I agreed and was screened by the Clerk of Court, Cicely Barber. She is a very nice lady. She only asked me 3 questions however, and said she would narrow down more candidates for a panel interview. Another gentleman was present for quality control purposes. I received a call back two days later for the panel interview.

    The panel consisted of 4 individuals, someone from Superior, Magistrate, State and Juvenile Court (if I'm not mistaken). The screening interview took about 5 minutes. The panel interview took less than 15. I was asked 7 or 8 questions. I completely over-prepared for the interview! Nothing about "greatest weakness or strength" or those typical interview questions found on the internet, etc. One was about how I perceive customer service and implement it. Another asked for me to tell of a time when I had to deal with a co-worker slacking off. One more was about paying attention to detail since it's very important in a court environment.

    Interview Questions
    • The most difficult question involved naming 5 judges between Magistrate and State Court. I was COMPLETELY unprepared to answer that.   Answer Question
