    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Commonwealth of Kentucky in February 2016.

    Interview

    I applied in September and was emailed an interview invitation in Feb. I was interviewed by 3 supervisors. The 3 ladies were very nice and professional. I was given a couple papers to look over that had information about the job, salary, etc. I was asked 5 behavioral questions and the ladies wrote down my answers as they were given. I felt I didn't get the opportunity to "sell" myself. The interview lasted about 20 mins. If I could do it all over, I'd try to sell myself while answering the questions. They said they send their recommendations to Frankfort and Frankfort makes the final decision and that I should hear something in 2 weeks. So, now I'm just waiting and praying.
