    Juvenile Probation Officer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Orlando, FL

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Florida Department of Juvenile Justice (Orlando, FL) in October 2015.

    Interview

    While scheduling the interview I was told the interview would start at 9am and be over no later than 11am. Upon arrival I realized that was not the case. There were 30+ applicants and 1 interviewer. They began by explaining the job duties for roughly 2 hours. After which they gave us a two page assessment to complete in 45 minutes. Once everyone had completed the assessments, we waited to be called into a separate room to be interviewed by the Chief. By the time my name was called it was about 1:30pm. During the waiting, some applicants had to leave to return to their jobs. After everyone was interviewed individually, we took an half hour lunch. Upon returning from lunch we began another assessment to test our interactions with the mentally unstable and/or troubled children. By the time we all completed the timed assessment and were given back our proof of ID it was 4:30pm. By far the longest interview of my life.
