    Interviewee Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fort Smith, AR

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Arkansas DHS (Fort Smith, AR) in August 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process makes a person feel as though they are jumping through hoops, persons doing the interview typically give the impression of "why are you here again" Not sure if one is to infer the job is already filled, or if you are just wasting your time going to the interview. Impression of the overall employees is this…a lot are very young, they seem to enjoy talking amongst themselves about personal things, work ethics are slacking. Impression is, I got the job, I nailed the interview, so I will do as little as possible to get through until payday.

    Intern Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Arkansas DHS (Little Rock, AR) in October 2013.

    Interview

    They said that there would be two call backs. Actually there was only one for some reason. The first interview was a panel of two people I think, maybe it was supposed to be three and one of them didn't ask questions or didn't show up. The second was one on one with a woman who was about to retire, she was very grandmotherly. In both interviews there were moments when I felt that I was not qualified but they just let me do it. I totally forgot about the drug test till the last moment.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Arkansas DHS (Little Rock, AR) in December 2014.

    Interview

    It is a two part process. A written portion with a couple hypotheticals related to the position, and a panel interview. I was given thirty minutes to complete the written portion. The attorney position does not require knowledge of child welfare law. They give you everything you need to answer the questions. The actual interview was a panel interview of two.

    Family Service Worker Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Arkansas DHS (Bentonville, AR) in October 2013.

    Interview

    I got the call for interview 2-3 weeks after applying. The interview was held in a conference room at the Holiday Inn in Springdale. There was about 7 other people. I sat at a table and filled out a thick packet of paperwork, information needed after hiring including tax information, background check consent, traffic history consent, etc. There is also a paper with 5 questions about your experience working with families and a couple "What would you do?" questions. They played a 15-minute video and once all that was done, I was called to another room where the interview took place. It was one-on-one. Be prepared for behavioral interview questions. The whole thing lasted 2 hours, with the actual interview portion only about 15-20 minutes long.
