I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Fairfax County Virginia in Jan 2020

Interview

Applied online took three weeks job to close and next week was called for interview. Came in for interview was given paper with questions was given 15 minutes to take a look and was given background check form. Afterwards they took me to computer for writing sample email response which I did then on to interview panel. The Panel interview consists of Engineers that work within department and they were polite, professional, and very respectful. They asked same questions that were given to me earlier on piece of paper. In the end they said hiring manager may contact you one on one or may not don’t know what he wants to do. I had very positive experience at the interview panel. Then came phone call from the hiring manager who is the Deputy Director setup one on one informal talk. I went and everything was great up until hiring manager said we need three professional references one of which must be current employer supervisor of the company you are currently working for. He went on saying we will give you verbal offer first and then if you accept it then we will contact the current supervisor you gave and then we give your offer in writing. This reminded me of my previous messy and ugly experience where I allowed prospective employer to contact my current employer supervisor and the current employer became furious next day I went for work. The current employer terminated me on the spot and I did not have firm offer from prospective employer. To this day that employer hold grudge against me and gives me negative reviews. I can only make mistake once fool on me if it were happen twice. I have to justify to each employer what happened and it damages my reputation. I emailed next day the hiring manager and let them know I can give you three professional references past employer which I did in email but unless you can give me firm offer letter in writing and it has been accepted I am not willing to come and work for you. I wrote it is highly unusual that hiring manager is insisting on current employer references usually they are off the table. I got phone call from the hiring manager saying he cannot give written offer before. I politely said thanks but no thanks in the end. Once Fairfax County Government needs ethics check among all hiring managers, directors, deputy directors, supervisors such practices which messes with candidates or damages candidates future should not be allowed. Find some other way to see if candidate is good fit other than current employer references.
