    I was called in to take the work study test and approximately 2 weeks later I was invited to come in for an interview. The interview was pretty direct and to the point. They pretty much asked my qualifications, explained the hours of operation window, advised the rate of pay, and basically to sell myself. I was told that a decision would be made within the next week or two, so I'm waiting to see if I was chosen for the position.

    Reasons for Declining

    This review represents about 6 interviews across the past few years, all with the same approach and results. The common problem is that the State simply cannot afford these skilled positions - project manger, software developer, DBA, etc. The maximum budgeted salary is usually 25% below the median salary for the area and the area is already 25% below the median for the southeastern US region.
