    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at Texas Department of Family and Protective Services (Arlington, TX) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online received an assessment via email a few days later, a week and half later received a 3 part assessment from STARK. After about two weeks received an email inviting me to a hiring fair two weeks from the day email was sent. Overall it took about 6 weeks to get an interview. There were about 20-30 of us at the hiring fair.The email sent was detailed and had an attachment with documents to print, fill out and return. There were about 12 supervisors and hiring specialist who gave a brief orientation. The orientation gives synopsis of job duties and benefits. DFPS provides you with a small tablet, printer and cell phone. You are required to drive your own vehicle and are reimbursed at .56/mile, health insurance is covered 100% by state. Your application is already preassigned to a three panel interview team.

    The pay is set for this position unless you have BSW, MSW, or previous work experience with DFPS. But because I interviewed well and was offered a special investigator position, same pay just more challenging cases.
