    Pros

    Expectations are clear. Depending on the team you are assigned to, meeting expectations is fairly easy. DOR management is very open to new ideas and if they are feasible, they will actually use them. There is a very solid team atmosphere and everyone is verys supportive of each other. DOR is implementing Lean principles, which is improving the culture even more.

    Cons

    Lots of "gray" areas makes it hard to do your job at times. Many decisions are tied up in legislative red tape, so making changes can be difficult at times. Finding time to do everything expected of you can be difficult at times.

    Advice to Management

    Continue implementing Lean. Consider adjusting the work load for examiners so that it is more attainable and so that Examiners can actually go to training without it hurting their work time.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Washington Department of Revenue.

    Interview

    Very lengthy interview... 32 questions and over 2 hours long! However, the interviewing panel was friendly, and genuine and while the questions were many, they did not throw a lot of weird behavioral questions at me ... most questions were relevant to the job, or to get a feel for what work style I have. All in all I would rate it a very positive experience, I felt comfortable and confident and I also felt they wanted me to be comfortable rather than feeling like I was in the hot seat.
