Application

I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at City of Philadelphia (Philadelphia, PA) in May 2013.

Interview

Civil Service Exam - a panel interview in which you are given a set of questions to answer, given time to write out your answer/ideas in a room separate from the interviewers, and then meet the panel and answer the questions orally. The questions here are more on general engineering practices.

You'll get put on a list based on how well you do in the interview, and it will take several months for you to rise to the top of that list to get a department specific interview, depending on when a position opens up. This second interview is with whoever your prospective managers will be, and covers more specific day-to-day questions about the specific job opening.

Interview Questions

  • Given a specific situation (say, a retaining wall that has given out near a bus route, and school will let out soon), what are the best engineering steps to take for this situation.   Answer Question
