    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Texas Department of Criminal Justice.

    Interview Details

    I applied for this position back in January 2009 after 6 months of waiting I received a call and was scheduled for an interview at my local district parole office. For the interview, I was introduced to the Assistant Regional Director and 4 Unit Supervisors. None of the unit supervisors asked me any questions, only the Assistant Director. This interview was very structured, questions pertained to Behavioral circumstances, i.e, How would you approach the situation if your offender told you he had just committed a crime? After my 45 minute interview I was thanked for my time and was told that they will reach their decision within the two week period and notify me if I was chosen.
