    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at NC Department of Health and Human Services (Raleigh, NC) in June 2016.

    Interview

    DHHS is addicted to these stilted, round robin panel interviews. The questions barely pertain to position on offer, many in the room would benefit from extended answers but the format with 4 or 5 people busily, heads down writing, not engaging the interviewee is counter productive.

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at NC Department of Health and Human Services (Raleigh, NC) in June 2015.

    Interview

    HR person called and arranged for the interview and we set a date and time. For the interview, I arrived as scheduled and sat down with the hiring manager and unit lead.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at NC Department of Health and Human Services (Raleigh, NC) in May 2015.

    Interview

    It was overkill. 1.5 HR interview with 3 people. I knew more about NC SOC that at least 2 of the people sitting at the table interviewing me. It was obvious that they weren't sure of the roles of the position. Then was made to create a writing sample on the spot on how you would respond to an e-mail. Seemed cheesy and unprofessional.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at NC Department of Health and Human Services (Oxford, NC) in November 2014.

    Interview

    Panel interview with three managers but the hiring manager is the one usually asking all the questions. It lasted about 30 minutes. They attempt to disarm you in the very beginning to get you to relax, and the questions are somewhat redundant.

    • Tell us about yourself? What are your strengths and weaknesses, very basic. Oh and do you have interviewing skills. They're looking to see if you've interviewed clients in a clinical setting.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at NC Department of Health and Human Services (Butner, NC) in July 2014.

    Interview

    I applied online through the state of NC jobs website. The job was only posted for one week. I heard back 2 months after applying, after having tried to follow up but having difficult doing so. I did a brief phone interview with the direct supervisor then a 3 hour in-person interview including a tour, which was with the direct supervisor as well as that person's boss. I waited a few weeks before hearing back about an offer, and then had to wait a few weeks to start as their new employee orientation only happens once a month at the start of each month.

    Interview Questions

    • What are your strengths and weaknesses, Do you have experience working with mentally ill patients, Describe how you've handled a challenging work situation. The questions were mostly run-of-the-mill interview questions. As a MT I had to do a musical audition of sorts as well.   Answer Question
