    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Arlington County.

    Interview

    Hiring process was horrible. I was e-mailed all the details (salary/benefits). However, I did not receive an offer letter until after the start date! ( Note, I lived in another state at the time) Luckily, everything worked out fine. Interview process was informal and interviewers were very friendly.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Arlington County (Arlington, VA) in June 2011.

    Interview

    Interview went well. It was a panel of 3 people. Each person asked about 4 questions and really enjoyed when I went into detail with my past work experiences and accomplishments. I was offered the job, however, I had to decline because they were offering a very low salary for a very expensive area to live.

    Mental Health Counselor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Arlington, VA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    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!

    Interview

    Application online. Sent a link to do a recorded interview. A new use of technology for me as I had not used that type of interview platform before. Once the glitches were worked out it was ok but I prefer face to face which I was called in to do.
