I applied online. I interviewed at City of Seattle in Nov 2020

Interview

I did not call back within 24 hours and was told they no longer had a spot to interview me. I was also told that they would call me if another spot opened up. I have not heard back. The time it takes you to respond my not be the most important criteria to use when selecting new management staff.

Interview Questions
  • Respond to any call immediately. So, you have to decide if you can miss an expectation on your current job to call back right away. I could not.
