    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at IDOT (Collinsville, IL) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online by sending an email.Then after 2 months, I received a mail saying I am selected for an interview. I called them to set up the interview and signed the paper enclosed (to release the criminal records). I drove 400 miles to Collinsvile. 8:30 am interview, were 3 people. Took a copy of my driver's license, then the interview began. I was not allowed to look at my resume , but allowed to write note which at the end they confiscated it (didn't say it in the beginning). The interview should took 1 hr, but I took 30 mins. They told me to wait several weeks, and after 1 month I received a call, but I already got my job so I rejected them. And the area where it is at is remote to where I live now, and the position is only good for 6-9 months.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at IDOT (Saint Louis, MO) in May 2016.

    Interview

    I was called and they would ask a question and then wait for you to complete your answer. Once you were done speaking, they would ask the next question. It was not personal and it felt like you were speaking to a computer. It was difficult to figure out whether you answered the question to their understanding or not.

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at IDOT (Collinsville, IL) in November 2012.

    Interview

    They ask cliche interview questions that won't really determine whether you are the best fit for the job. Their questions basically try to determine whether you will do the right thing in tough situations, and how you handle adverse situations. They ask very few, if any, questions about your knowledge or abilities in specific areas.
