    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at City of Houston (Houston, TX) in February 2016.

    Interview

    2 person panel interview, questions didn't really seek to select person best qualified but more the preferred applicant. Questions and answers- open ended questions. Very basic, didn't require much depth. I am more accustomed to higher level interviews at this level. Many of the questions were not situational and didn't require much clarification.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at City of Houston in September 2015.

    Interview

    Typical interview. Two employees sat across from me in a conference room asking me questions from a standard list. Most questions were regarding my background. It was moderately comfortable with some small talk. They did ask me the same questions multiple times, not because they were trying to trip me up, but because the same question was on their list in more than one place and one couldn't remember the answer I had previously provided.

    They told me that the next step was for me to take a timed exam to test my skills. I never was contacted about the exam, so I figured they weren't interested.

    I didn't hear from them for over a month and was called back for a second interview with a more senior employee.

    Human Resources Interview

    Interview

    Applied on line. Application status changed from "received application" to "departmental reviewing". It has been 2 months and no updates. I called to follow up and was told cannot speak to hiring manager. I asked if position was still open and lady informed me she did not know. Asked her for advice on what to do. She said we are slow at hiring and just keep checking your status on line. Very frustrating and unprofessional on their part. If one is not qualified then change status to not qualified.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at City of Houston (Houston, TX) in April 2013.

    Interview

    Manager was late to the interview. She did not seem interested in interviewing me. It was like just part of a process that she had to follow. The job was reposted the day before my interview. My theory is if you are not really interested in hiring me, DONT waste my time. There were several people there on the same day to interview. One person left before me and one was waiting after me. They had no intention off hiring any of us.

    Interview

    The position I applied for was posted in February and I received a call last week for an interview that was today (3/27/13). It was a panel a three. It wasn't intimidating at all. They talked about the position and questioned me on my skill and why that position. Afterwards, I took a writing test.

    If everything goes well, they will call me to speak with the supervisor over the position before they make a hiring decision.
