I applied online. The process took 3 months. I interviewed at Oregon Department of Human Services in Aug 2022

Interview

I heard back about an interview within a few weeks, and was sent the interview questions the night before. The panel of three I interviewed with just went down the line of questions, and I was unable to ask any questions due to time constraints. I was told I would hear back by the end of the week, but I didn't. I followed up the next week, and was told someone would get back to me, but no one did. I followed up again the next week and simply never heard back. Two months after I interviewed I received an automated response saying I was not selected for the position. I find it very unprofessional to not communicate with applicants after they've sat down for an interview.

Interview Questions

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Oregon Department of Human Services (Salem, OR) in Jul 2020

Interview

During Covid, the process may have differed somewhat from the normal interview process. I applied via Workday and then was given an opportunity to answer a few questions to move on to the next interview step. After that, I had a Skype Business call with a handful of managers. Overall, it was easier than I expected, but it did take nearly two months to be hired from the time I applied. Again, I think Covid had a hand in the change from normal interview and hiring practices.

Interview Questions
  • Questions regarding my views on diversity and the ability to handle working with at-risk and hostile people.

I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Oregon Department of Human Services (Salem, OR) in Jul 2019

Interview

Very government-like: friendly people but severely formal and archaic process. Four Q&A essay questions (app plus essay was maybe 2hrs prep); some questions were repeated on a written list of 10 questions which I got 15 minutes to preview prior to the interview. It was a four-person panel interview with the fourth person being on speaker/video with no face despite the ability to provide one. Each person Read the printed questions in round robin format, and I was told that every person was required to write down exactly what I said as well as confiscate any notes I had taken on the question preview opportunity. They were kind and offered a lot of information upfront (probably more than should be given in an initial interview), but enough to scare me that their process was indeed as archaic and outdated as the hints provided me from the general atmosphere: while the building and top floor view was beautiful, there were no lights on, it was a cavernous space with few people, there was no Sign of employee engagement or fun, and my worry about the organization started from that observation and probably carried into the interview. I wasn’t surprised I was not chosen to go further. I probably ended it for myself with my subconscious vibes.
