    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Dallas County.

    Took place in the engine room. Head manager asked questions relating to what you know. He writes it all down. Somewhat intimidating atmosphere if you're not used to this. He wants to know you're technical skill relating to the position.

Also helps if you know how a closed loop system works for ac/heating (water in from reservoir, runs through filter, into a chiller etc). Know you're tools, tho only tools you will ever use will be, flat head, Phillips, wire stripper/cutters, tape measure, box cutter, ratchet (1/8th socket) and security bits (provided), rubber mallet, pliers, adjustable wrench. You have to provide you're own tools excluding security bits, drill bits.

    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.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Dallas County (Dallas, TX) in March 2011.

    Interview

    I thought the interviewer was very rude. The interview seemed to have nothing to do with any skills or talents, but mainly just the interviewer's impressions/misconceptions of who I was and what my political leanings were. Very strange altogether and pretty uncomfortable at points.

    Interview Questions

    • Their first question was for me to tell them something about myself that was not on my resume. It was just very unexpected.   Answer Question
