    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 days. I interviewed at City of Jacksonville (Jacksonville, FL) in August 2008.

    Interview

    It took several months for HR to even respond to applications and schedule interviews. I came in for a group skills test and was called back for a group interview. I thought the interview went well although I got the impression it was a "boys' club" type atmosphere and they told me they weren't willing to pay me what I wanted but I explained I was interested in the benefits package and was willing to take a pay cut. I never heard from them again and they do not return calls or emails.
