    Civilian Caller Intke Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Illinois Tollway (Chicago, IL) in August 2015.

    Interview

    I expected an actual interview, but instead arrived at a facility and stood in line with about 200 other people to be processed for testing. It was a lot like a cattle call or a huge group interview. After forty five minutes, I left. I completely understand and appreciate the work that the Tollway workers do, but as I stood there waiting to take a typing test, I realized that the full time job I've endured for the last seven years wasn't THAT bad after all.

    Interview

    Hiring process was very engaging. There were a series of general and work related question that pertained to soft skill and hard skill sets. An HR Manager and a Manager from the Dept I ended up working in were the interviewers. Atmosphere was very conversational as opposed to an intense or intimidating interview.

    Intern (Business Systems) Interview

    No Offer

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Illinois Tollway.

    Interview

    They called me about 3 weeks after filling out an application to schedule an interview. The interview was only about 10 min long. There were 3 ppl in the room and they all were like robots with no emotion, I felt like they didn't want to be there and that they felt miserable. I was upbeat and they were just BLAH, which was awkward. All of the questions were easy normal interview q's about your skills, education, and computer knowledge. Had the interview today but i don't expect to get a call back lol. Didn't get a good vibe from the interviewers so didn't take it seriously

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Illinois Tollway (Downers Grove, IL) in March 2010.

    Interview

    Submitted my application 6 months prior to getting a call for an interview. I was more like a screening interview when I found myself waiting outside an office with a couple other applicants. A couple hours later I was in front of a three person interview panel with scripted questions. (Typical Project Management type questions). It lasted for about an hour and said they would be getting back to me in about a week but haven't heard anything in over a month.
