    Support Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Phoenix, AZ
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at State of Arizona (Phoenix, AZ) in September 2013.

    Interview

    Got a call about 3 weeks after I applied for the job online. They asked if I wanted to come in for an interview, which I agreed to. The interview consisted of a panel of 3 supervisors who each asked me pre-determined questions which were written on a piece of paper (each person, myself included, was given a copy). The interview lasted about 25 minutes.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at State of Arizona.

    Interview

    Straightforward communications to set up interview time. The State was accommodating with dates for the interview. I arrived and talked with one person who clearly was not prepared for the interview because I was not truly being considered.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about yourself. This was literally the only question I was asked and because the interviewer did not bring any pen and paper and was reading my resume in front of me I quickly realized that I was not truly under consideration. A previous interview with the Department of Economic Security involved substantial note taking and a brief computer writing test and I was made an offer for that position.   1 Answer

    Customer Service Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Phoenix, AZ

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at State of Arizona (Phoenix, AZ) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Firstly, the individual who invited me to interview (and was consequently one of the interviewers) acted very unprofessionally, and I don't say that lightly. Too much to get into specifically, but for a brief example, I had to repeatedly ask for the interview location to be sent to me beforehand. The interview itself was pretty standard, with a panel and some process related questions. I kept feeling rushed through the interview and they didn't seem interested in me expanding on my answers. I asked for a hiring timeline at the end and was told "about 3 weeks". I received an email the next day saying another candidate was selected. I followed up to see if this was an error and received no responses back. It appears that for some positions there is no intention of hiring external candidates.

    Interview Questions

    • Q: Explain an instance when you disagreed with a supervisor's review of your performance.   Answer Question
