    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a week. I interviewed at Georgia Department of Transportation (Atlanta, GA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    They only work with staffing agencies, since they tend to hire only contractors now. I had an extensive phone interview with my agent and then the agents manager about technical skills and work experience. Finally, after about 1 month I was called in for a 1:1 in person interview with the hiring manager, who is also the Team Lead for the IT dept. It was a brief 20 min interview which mostly was small talk and a little bit of technical questions here or there.

    Interview Questions

    • General questions about resume, asked to elaborate about previous work experience. Not a whole lot of technical questions, since management is not very technical themselves.   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Georgia Department of Transportation (Atlanta, GA) in August 2018.

    Interview

    There was an initial phone interview before an in person one. I was not able to show up in person so I did the second interview on the phone as well. Most of the questions focused on my past experiences. There was one technical question in which I was given a scenario and I was asked how I would approach the situation. It was a traffic problem. I thought it was pretty straightforward. The overall experience of the interview was good. But I did learn how to answer some questions in a more effective way. The feedback that I was given was that I should listen to the questions more carefully.
