    GIS Systems Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Saint Augustine, FL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at St. Johns County (Saint Augustine, FL) in December 2015.

    Interview

    Interview was pretty straight forward with technical questions and behavioral questions. Panel style interview with 4 people in the room. I received a phone call a week or so after the interview informing me that they hired someone else, but the position was re-posted on their website shortly thereafter. I was qualified for the position and felt the interview went well. If you don't want to hire me, that's fine, but why lie about hiring someone else?

    Interview Questions

    • Typical technical questions pertaining to the position   Answer Question
    • Typical behavioral questions pertaining to why you want to work there, describe a conflict situation, etc   Answer Question

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at St. Johns County (Saint Augustine, FL) in March 2012.

    Interview

    My first contact was at the tryout. You must be able to swim 500 meters in less than 10 minutes and run .5 miles in less than 3 minutes. Everyone who passed the tryout was able to attend marine rescue academy - a lengthy and time consuming training course. It was four weeks long, met three days a week (Tues-Thurs) for classroom time and a workout and on Sundays almost the whole day for a little more class time and a LOT more physical training. At the end of the course, there is a written exam, a physical exam (the Gauntlet), and an oral exam as well as an interview. Everyone in my class who made it to exam day was hired.

    Interview Questions

    • The Gauntlet was difficult. Everyone was exhausted. It was hard.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Everyone who passed the physical, oral and written exams was hired. Everyone who finished the course and took the exams passed.
