    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at State of Wisconsin.

    Interview Details

    Applied online through the state of Wisconsin's job center website. Had to complete an exam with three questions centered around my experience and skills that made me a good fit for the position. There was a three person panel that conducted my interview consisting of the director, the lead accountant, and a representative from the HR department. The interview itself was very short (only about 45 minutes). They offerred me the position a week after the interview.

    Interview Questions
    • The questions mostly came from my resume as well as some of the more common behavioral questions: describe a time you had to work in a team that was dysfunctional, how do you see your career path unfolding,   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    There was no negotiation because the wage rates are set by the legislature.
