    Senior HR Business Partner Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Salem, OR
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Oregon Department of Transportation (Salem, OR) in December 2017.

    Interview

    Very unprofessional process.

    The interview was staged in Salem, OR which isn't close to where the position was based. I drove an hour from Portland and was kept waiting for about 40 minutes. I actually went to ask an HR Assistant if there was an issue. Head of HR for the agency apologized for the wait and didn't bother explaining. I was then informed I was on a strict 45min time frame to answer roughly ten detailed, multi part questions.

    I answered roughly six very technical questions in addition to the follow up questions the large panel had when I was informed we had ten minutes left.

    I suggested we wrap up the process since we were pressed for time and instead I was pressed to finish answer all of them in ten minutes.

    Transportation Services Representative Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Oregon Department of Transportation (Beaverton, OR) in August 2013.

    Interview

    After applying online it took 3 weeks before I was notified I'd made it to the next round. It took another 2 weeks to schedule my interview. It was a panel interview and they didn't break from script at all. In each question they are looking for specific keywords in your answer. If you don't use the right words, they don't move you forward. Personality/Cohesiveness was low on the list.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    It is a government position and negotiating is a waste of time. They are limited in their pay scale.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Oregon Department of Transportation (Bend, OR) in September 2009.

    Interview

    There was a prepared list of questions which the person being interviewed received upon arrival to the site for the interview. You then had 15-20 minutes to review those questions and prepare yourself for the panel interview. The interview was a behavioral interview, which meant that they asked a lot of questions about how you handled past challenges and conflicts. They were also interested in how you would approach design issues, what steps you would take. And, like most interviews, they wanted to know why you thought you were right for that job.
