    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Arkansas DHS.

    Interview

    Interview was a joke. Had to fill out paperwork and answer questions before the interview. Interviewer walked out into lobby and talked to another candidate. It was clear that they were friends. Interviewer spent over an hour with that candidate. Once the first candidate left the interviewer IMMEDIATELY changed her attitude. Called me into the back. Spent only 5 minutes with me and that was it. It felt like nobody in that office actually read my application or resume. Interviewer asked about 4 questions off the sheet I filled out and that was it. Promised to call me back and tell me whether or whether not I got the job. Never heard anything back. I understand finding the best candidate but don't waste an applicant's time by shooing them through an interview just to meet a candidate quota.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Arkansas DHS (Batesville, AR) in September 2015.

    Interview

    They will usually do a mass interview. You will fill out all the paperwork you would fill out if you were hired. Then they would interview you. This streamlines the process and makes it to where you don't need to fill out as much upon hiring in to the company.
    The interviews are very cut and dry, with questions about your knowledge about state programs and data entry. There will be a video at the beginning that will let you know exactly what the job id's about.

    Interview Questions

    • Name a time when you were put in a situation that was difficult dealing with an upset client/customer. How did you handle it?   1 Answer

    Interviewee Interview

    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.
