    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Chicago Housing Authority (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    Applied online and received a call after 2 weeks to interview in person. The interview was with 3 people in Marketing/Communications, as well as the HR director.
    2 weeks after that, got an email stating that I was moving on to the second interview stage, which was to submit a storyboard proposal for one of CHA's initiatives, due in 1 week.
    2+ weeks after that deadline, finally get an email saying someone else was selected.
    Overall a long and drawn out process.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Chicago Housing Authority (Chicago, IL) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Fairly easy, scheduled an interview via e-mail and came in and sat down with head of marketing department and two other members of the marketing team (both of which are no longer even working at the company). They asked me questions about that pertained to the job and my experience and how I would handle certain situations.

    Compliance Specialist Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Chicago Housing Authority (Chicago, IL) in October 2014.

    Interview

    3 person panel, they asked a series of questions. All panelists recorded your responses. It was very intimidating. Panelists had different personalities, it was hard to read them. Interview lasted an hour. Questions ranged from specific regulatory compliance questions to organization, work ethic, etc. As long as you state you are a good team player, you are detailed, organized, a good communicator and efficient, your interview should go well.

    Make eye contact. Make sure to look at all panelists when answering questions. And make sure to ask your own questions at the end.

    Also read the Davis Bacon, M/W/DBE and Section 3 regulations before going into the interview, as this is going to be asked of you - what do you know about these regulations.

    Analyst Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Chicago Housing Authority (Chicago, IL) in January 2012.

    Interview

    Sent application in electronically for one position. Received call shortly thereafter requesting an interview for another (different) position. An intern with HR called repeatedly to reschedule the interview time. Appeared as though my resume was not examined thoroughly, as expertise which I don't have in a certain software package was required for the position in question, and a skills test was given immediately following the panel interview on said software. HR did not inform me beforehand of the software expertise needed or the skills test following the interview. The panel interview was typical - 3 or so people asking stock questions and writing down answers.
