    I applied online. I interviewed at Fairfax County Virginia (Fairfax, VA).

    Interview

    Panel interview for position within Family Services. I left the interview knowing my work experience, technical competencies and skills was superior to the interviewers. Fairfax County is one of the riches county in state of Virginia and it so behind in technology. You would think such a RICH county would be update on technology and automation. I learned during the interview a lot of tasks are still being performed manually such as equipment inventory (ie laptops, copiers, etc). The folks actually are called out to various locations and walk around manually recording serial numbers, etc. In addition, the department does a lot of pulling data and performing analytics in EXCEL (ie pivot tables). There are a number of data analytical tools out there ... user friendly that are compatible with various platforms and databases. The ideal of extracting and importing data in Excel & creating pivots tables was not ideal. I was coming for corporate America .... my background was in TRUE systems and business analysis. I was looking to advance my career and/or find suitable position.

    The interviewers had been in working in department for LONG time ... which was obvious. I think the ladies may have been offended about my inquiry about department plans in relation to technology/automation.

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Fairfax County Virginia.

    Interview

    Panel interview- first interview with three supervisors, and second interview with four. Very easy and laid back interview. I felt as though it was more of a dialogue. I have a ton of experience in the field, which is why I feel as though the interviews were relatively easy. Very lengthy process- I applied in late June, first interview in August, second in September, & I just received an off in early October

    Panel interview. I had the opportunity to review the interview questions beforehand. Overall, thought the process was very automated and objective. There was a written portion and a database entry test after the panel interview. It took about a month to get a call about for an interview. Very competitive, even for an admin III job

    Interview

    very direct process. since the position is not a merit based position and it is not considered a very high salary, the position did not require an extensive interview process. I was recommended by a current employee and from there discussed my experience and was offered the position. It was a very easy and again, direct process to being working
