    Water Quality Specialist Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (Denver, CO) in January 2017.

    Interview

    The entire process, from application to final interview, took over 2 months. The hiring process begins with a basic application and resume review. Once the applicant field is limited to 6 individuals, an initial phone interview is conducted. This interview is very rushed and they just want answers to very basic questions. It takes place over 5-10 minutes and there were 6 people on the call. If you are one of 3 people selected after the initial phone interview, you will be able to do an in-person interview with 2 department employees as well as the hiring manager.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment in December 2009.

    Interview

    I applied for the job in 6/09, the job was down-graded to part time in 8/09, was re-named in 10/09. When I was finally invited to interview in November, I was asked to do a 30 minute .ppt on "How to Run a Patietn Safety Collaborative". The screening interview group of 3 was very friendly and respectful. They seemed to understand what I said, and had good questions as I included concepts from my Black Belt training that seemed unfamiliar to them. When I was called in for a face-to-face with the daily work team with weeks later, the interview was with 4 people huddled in an office. I could not look them all in the eye, but they gave me a sincere and interested audience. I was suprised when I was not chosen for the job.
