Interview

An HR Representative called me. I missed the call and they did not leave a message. When I called the number back, I received clarification of why they were calling (to set up an interview). The person asked me if I was ok with the salary range of the job. I asked them to remind me what it was since I had applied to multiple positions. They didn't know and couldn't answer me. I was first sent a link to do a recorded/virtual interview with a computer program. It was horrible, but I got through it. I was then contacted to have a virtual interview with actual people. A group of 5 people asked me the most asinine questions. When it came my turn to ask them questions about the actual job, they struggled to give me direct answers. I simply wanted clarification on the actual job duties and they could not tell me anything. At the end of the interview someone said I would be hearing from HR within 48 hours either way (whether I would be asked to come in person for another interview or otherwise). I was never contacted and the position still shows open on their website 6 months later. I hate to say it, but every single person I dealt with along the way lived up to the reputation of a government employee. SO SAD.

Interview Questions
  • Situational questions that were absolutely ridiculous. This is a job with the city making a basic salary - not Google. They read from a script and never asked me actual questions about myself or work history and how I could add value to their department.

Three people on panel. Ask basic questions about yourself. They made sure you were comfortable. Not intimidating at all. Took the most about 30 minutes to interview. I didn't hear back for maybe 2 1/2 month to 3 months and then I received an offer.
