    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Florida Department of Children and Families (Jacksonville, FL) in October 2017.

    Interview

    First, you take a test which is two parts: a mock case with math questions and a typing test. If you pass the first part then you move on to the typing test. After you pass the typing test, you fill out hiring paperwork and do an interview with two people. If that goes well, they will email you with finger printing. After the finger printing, don't get your hopes up even if you know for a fact that you have a clean record. When your background and everything comes back from Tallahassee, the head of hiring reviews your profile and listens to the recorded interview. That's when it's decided if you are hired.
