    Inventory Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Springfield, IL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at IDOT (Springfield, IL).

    Interview

    The interviewer asks a series of questions that are printed on a sheet. He or she writes down your answers. You are not allowed to have the job description or your resume in front of you. The interviewer is not allowed to elaborate on the questions, he or she can only repeat the question. They also tell you that your answers are scored and you must answer as if they have never seen your resume or application. The questions are based heavily on previous job duties and are very specific to the job you are interviewing for.

    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.

    I applied online. I interviewed at IDOT in April 2017.

    Applied and it took 4 weeks for them to send out notifications by the emails and mails . And asked for scheduling interviews the following weeks. Questions are very technical in nature. 40 mins to finish the interview. And they care about the answers more than you as a person.
