    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at City of Houston (Houston, TX) in January 2010.

    Interview

    The application process consists of an online application. I was then called for an interview, in which I was interviewed by a panel of 3. Two were employees of the division and the other was an outside City employee. There were a series of questions that the panel members took turns asking. Following the interview, I had to complete an assessment test in which I had to create an Excel spreadsheet for the given topic. The panel members were nice and patient. The people and the office gave me the impression that it was a relaxed, yet serious environment.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe a time when you used Excel to create a spreadsheet and what was the out come.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    You are rarely able to negotiate the salary unless it is an Executive Level posision. If you are willing to take a lower pay with decent benefits, then the City of Houston may be the place for you.
