    Emergency Telecommunicator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Raleigh, NC

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at City of Raleigh (Raleigh, NC) in January 2014.

    Interview

    Interview process consists of three members of middle-to-upper management. They interviewed so many candidates and on so many different days, the board could vary wildly depending on who you were sitting in front of. I lucked out and shared some geographical background with one of the interviewers and found out we knew the same people, so I was able to get the person to get side tracked and make it very friendly. I walked out of the interview knowing that I had the job, although there were more things that I needed to do like the psychological exam, which is a whole other beast. The psychological exam consists of several lengthy personality inventory tests and a sit-down that is actually more like a job interview than the actual interview was. The guy they contract even says it's more of an interview than the actual job interview. They give you a grade in the psychological interview, and usually everyone "normal" gets a B. They say they obviously don't hire failures, but at the same time they are very hesitant to hire As because they tend to be people who don't fit the conformism that they require for the job. Conformism is my word, not theirs, but it perfectly describes the type of people they are looking for.
