    I worked at State of Tennessee full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Very easy going workplace if you do your job.

    Cons

    People are paranoid wondering if they will be laid off or terminated next.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please advise person that they are being laid off. I was laid off due to "lack of work". There was more than enough work to do as the two attorneys I worked with have over 400 files. There was no rhyme or reason why this occurred . All I can said is that I enjoyed my employment with the State of Tennessee and would like to have it back.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at State of Tennessee.

    Interview Details

    I applied online early May and about one week after the posting closed, I received an email informing me to contact someone at the state to schedule an interview. A week later I had an interview with several others since they were hiring 28 people for this position. We were escorted to a room and watched a video on the disability claim process. After the video we did a written exam which consisted of answering a few questions about the video and one additional questions on how we would handle a negative person at work. I believe they were looking at our ability to summarize information and write. I had just the one interview before they contacted me to offer me the job a week later. It took about 4 weeks total.

    Interview Questions
    • Not difficult. Situational questions mainly such as: Tell us about a time when you had to deal with an angry client? Tell us about a time when you had multiple deadlines and how you handle that? Tell us about a time when you had to deal with a negative person at work? etc...   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation as it's the state and you have to start off at the level one position/salary.
