    Child Support Specialist I Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Temple Hills, MD
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Maryland Department of Human Resources (Temple Hills, MD) in March 2016.

    Interview

    I interviewed for this position in Prince George's County (Temple Hills, MD) and in Anne Arundel County (Annapolis, MD).

    In PG, there were around 15 of us interviewed at once with 4 interviewers. We were first asked to introduce ourselves which was limited to 1 minute speaking time. Then we had to work in small groups to arrange 5 scenarios of tasks in order by which task we would complete first to last. The interviewers shared their opinions on the scenarios and made it seem as though this was more of a task on passing off your tasks to coworkers and/or multitasking. Not sure what they wanted as it was made to seem like a prioritizing exercise. We then were handed a packet to complete in 20 minutes: write a letter given information about a client's case, interpret a court order, and follow instructions. That completed the interview.

    In AACo, there were about 7 of us being interviewed and 3 interviewers. Same process, except we were asked 2 questions.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Maryland Department of Human Resources.

    Interview

    The first interview lasted two hours. There was a panel of six individuals. I was asked a series of recorded questions. The panelists took notes of my responses and ranked them on a scale of 1 to 5. If my responses prompted additional questions, then those questions were asked as well. Had it not been for the occasional smile, it would have been better described as an interrogation.

    Interview Questions

    • Give an example where you had to lead a team of diverse people to accomplish a goal. Describe any conflicts and how those conflicts were overcome.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There wasn't much room for negotiation, because the agency's HR department is restricted in regard to the grade/step that is authorized to offer.
