    Deputy Sheriff Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Roanoke, VA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a year or more. I interviewed at City of Roanoke (Roanoke, VA).

    Interview

    Pretty Standard interview for law enforcement position. It is a long process of doing background checks, polygraph, psych test, neighbor check, home visit. After everything is completed then there is an interview with the sheriff, who asks you questions. They already know your background at this point, and want to gauge you as a person. My advice is to be honest and consistent with your answers, they already know your background, and if they don't, they will find out.

    Circuit Court Assistant Clerk Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Roanoke, VA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at City of Roanoke (Roanoke, VA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Multiple In-person interviews with the Clerk of Court and another employee. The atmosphere was very uncomfortable as we were in a very large conference room in the law library. The two interviewers sat at one end of a twelve foot table, while I was at the other end. The questions weren't all that difficult; for example, "Where do you see yourself in five years?", "Tell us your greatest strength and weakness". However, the clerk did ask me about my support system, which I found disturbing as a mother. She said that she wanted to ensure that someone else could take care of my children if they were sick. It gave me the impression that mothers of young children were not welcome. They called me in for a second interview, but I withdrew my application due to the feeling I got from the Clerk, who would have been my boss.
