    Park Rec Specialist I Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Fairfax, VA
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7+ months. I interviewed at Fairfax County Park Authority (Fairfax, VA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    It was a panel interview with three on the panel. Very rarely do the interviewers look up at you because they are taking notes the whole time. It is best to answer the questions thoroughly and be somewhat longwinded because the more you speak the better it is. Sometimes they will call you back for a second interview if they have multiple finalist. The process after this can take any where from one month to nine months.
