    I have been working at State of Nevada full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    In the process of changing the manner in which cases are processed so that workers are not saddled with an overwhelming case load. Every once in a while you get the satisfaction of knowing you helped someone who really needed help!!

    Cons

    Constant changes in policies, you are subject to be moved from one district office to another depending on the agency's needs, and at least until 2015 you are still subject to the unpaid furloughs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep treating employees in a welcoming and supportive fashion. Don't be afraid to take on those employees who either by negative action or negative speech damage employee morale.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 7+ monthsinterviewed at State of Nevada in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online April 2014. Weeks later I had to take a test in a testing center. I earned a good score. About a month later I was called for an interview and skills test. I thought I did well on both. 6 weeks after that I was called for a second interview. I received a rejection letter in late July 2014.
    It turns out I was on a list of eligible applicants with the state. I was called by another department in September 2014. I interviewed. They checked my background/references etc. I start November 2014. It's a long process but if you remain patient you can get a job. The starting pay was lower than expected but I hear the benefits and job security are pretty good.
