    IT Intern Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Raleigh, NC

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at City of Raleigh (Raleigh, NC) in May 2008.

    Interview

    All government hiring requires a drug and background test. I participated in a Panel interview, but not all employees undergo this process. It is at the discretion of the hiring manager and senior management.

    I completely botched the interview, except for the part where I convinced the City I was talented and dedicated enough to see the internship through. New hires are evaluated on ability and experience first, personality and drive second, and ability to show up in clothing third.

    Interview Questions

    • Where do you see yourself in five years?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I didn't negotiate, the salary for the position was fixed by the intern program.

    I will say this though: aim high. Your salary for your entire tenure at the City of Raleigh is based on your starting salary. Merit increases were insignificant and a major contribution to my decision to leave, cost of living was canned during the financial crisis, and longevity pay has been dramatically reduced from what it once was. What you make the entire time you work for the City is going to reflect that starting salary.
