    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Minnesota Department of Health (Saint Paul, MN) in December 2008.

    Interview

    Apply online - very controlled by computer
    If you make it past the computer your resume is passed to the hiring manager
    The hiring manager then chooses those to interview
    I had two interviews with groups of people ranging from 3-5 people. Writing example.
    One or two behavior based questions. Mostly generic tell us about yourself and work experience type questions.
    Was offered job over phone roughly a week later

    Interview Questions

    • Describe a time when you have had a difficult coworker or customer and how you managed to work with them.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Most jobs are union controlled. Was told I could not negotiate because of the union and HR rules. Thought I would be able to ask for a raise later. Came to find out salary is locked in once hired and no further salary increases are negotiable unless hired/promoted to a new position. I was hired at the bottom of the scale while others in my unit were hired at or near the top - somewhat DOQ.
