    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Dallas County.

    Interview

    The team utilized a structured interview form for the first interview, which seemed to be fair and relevant to the interview. The only negative or area of improvement would be to speed up the hiring process, as it usually takes up to 6 months to go through the human resources department.

    Negotiation

    Pay was non negotiable, the salary analysis was done prior from going to the interview. Salary is based off of experience and education. Associate degree accounts for 4 years relevant experience. Bachelors is 8 years relevant, pay is adjusted accordingly. This rule of thumb goes for all positions in Dallas county. All full time employees get full benefits standard, 7% mandatory into 401k. Lost about $4 a hour after all benefits and taxes were taken out of check.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Dallas County (Dallas, TX) in February 2012.

    Interview

    It was a panel interview with five people each asking three questions. The questions were general in nature. Some were in my opinion were weak and dealt more with beliefs than skills and abilities. The questions were more subjective than objective The questions were geared more toward personality type, beliefs, and working as a team. Very little about skills, and experience. However, it is an entry level job, therefore training was required.
