    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at State of Arkansas (Little Rock, AR).

    It was short and very unprofessional. The interviewers were unprepared. One interviewer knew what they were talking about while the other just sat there. Just looking and smiling. I knew I had the job before interview was over. The easiest I've ever had to do.
