    Pros

    The health and retirement benefits are good, and vacation time is decent. Most people are professional and try to do a good job. There is a lot of flexibility in terms of scheduling, so you can pretty much pick your hours and arrange your schedule however you want.

    Cons

    The rules can be strict in terms of when you can take breaks, what websites you visit, what you can put in an email, etc. A lot of this is due to the fact that state agencies are subject to public records requests. There can also be a lot of office drama and gossip.

    Advice to Management

    Loosen up. People tend to work more efficiently when they have some control over how they spend their time at work. It's too much to expect people to work diligently in a cubicle for eight hours a day, only breaking concentration for a twenty minute break every four hours.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at State of Oregon (Salem, OR) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Initial screening done online then email asking to set up interview time. Filled out standard background check for state employment then pre filled out the set questions for the interview. They kept the filled out sheet and asked the questions verbatim. Overall very tight interview was set for one hour but only took 30 minutes.
