Interview

Overall process was very positive. You are interviewed by 2-3 people within the department you are applying for. They grade you based on the answers you provided during the interview. The interview wasn’t too bad itself. It involved both personality and technical questions. They don’t expect you to know the technical question, but they are interested in how you would approach the question.

Interview Questions
  • How do you take criticism and ideas from people who are ranked below you

I applied online. The process took 2 months. I interviewed at City of Houston (Houston, TX) in Jul 2019

Interview

I was called in for the in-person interview. I prepared, rehearsed and during the interview I did great. Everyone seemed happy and got great feedback even from the Communications Director. She said I think like they do and that I had a great portfolio and pointed out positive things that I did that no one did and in the end said that I was one of the favorite candidates and had a great chance on getting hired. She also mentioned that to contact her if the future paper work from HR doesn't get to me in a day or two and to find the status. Overall very friendly person and the other people in the interviewing team were great too. But then after a two weeks she stopped responding to my email. I understood that I was not getting a chance of getting hired now so I just asked if how I could improve and if she can give any feedback.... again no answer. My problem was not for me getting hired there but for being a reasonable person, a person should be told if you make it to the final round of only 3 applicants (I was told that I was among last top 3 selected candidates and even have a better chance than any other), you should be courteous enough to notify. I do not trust their management and HR.
