    Management and Finance Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Arlington County (Arlington, VA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    I was interviewed by two people from the department. They asked four questions. Both were friendly and easy to talk to. I don't think I got the internship because I don't have much experience in the field. Plus, it was my first interview, so I was more nervous about what to expect.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Arlington County (Arlington, VA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    little information provided concerning job before interview took place. As a doctorate educated internationally trained applicatant this made the process very difficult and really represented the isolated view the US has to their mental health knowledge and application. I think there is not enough risk assessment done on patients to protect staff further management just seem to see the view that it is 'just more paperwork'. Which as an employee is a very ignorant and non protective or supportive approach of management staff!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Arlington County (Arlington, VA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    The administrative assistant called me and set up an interview. I had about 2 days notice. The interview went well. They were friendly enough. I was told the salary was going to be X and when offered it was Y, which was less than I was making at my current job (after asking to see a current pay stub), and less than what was advertised on the job ad. It was offered by my would-be direct supervisor. I asked for at least the same amount that I was making at my current job (in a less wealthy county) and she RESCINDED the offer.
