    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Lower Colorado River Authority (Austin, TX) in September 2017.

    Interview

    I submitted my resume online and was selected for an in-person interview. I think the time frame from submission to interview was about two weeks. The panel was easy to talk with. They asked garden variety questions regarding my experience and certifications. Unfortunately, HR will not contact you to give you any feedback regarding your interview or if you did/did not get the job. I would say that’s what tainted my experience. Why not show a little more interest in your prospective employees and answer the questions they may have?

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Lower Colorado River Authority (Austin, TX) in March 2011.

    Interview

    Was screened by an external recruiter who said they would definitely recommend me for a face to face and suggested 'a week or so' as timeframe for next contact. At the 2-week point, I emailed the recruiter to touch base, and again a week later, but received no response.

    After nearly 2 months from the first contact, I received a call from the same recruiter. She said that now that the face-to-face interviews were complete (indicating I was in that group), they had selected other candidate. I explained that I had not done another interview. She cast around for possible reasons they may have decided not to follow up, and ultimately promised to provide feedback on any issues or concerns.

    I never heard anything back.
