    IT Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Denver, CO
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at State of Colorado (Denver, CO) in October 2011.

    Interview

    Met with 4 people 4 separate times. Each was a one on one and separate days. I got the feeling that they just really needed people as the questioning was a little basic. The process was about 2 or 3 weeks but I am speculating that it was hard for others to break free for just a 30 minute to 1 hour talk.

    Interview Questions

    • All basically were asking what my 30, 60, and 90 day plans would be.   Answer Question
