    Correctional Officer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Live Oak, FL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at State of Florida (Live Oak, FL) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Lengthy with a lot of paperwork. Be patient because there's going to be a lot of paperwork and the orientation takes quite a bit. And there's a test on your second orientation day.

    Investigations Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in West Palm Beach, FL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at State of Florida (West Palm Beach, FL).

    Interview

    State agencies conduct Panel Interviews. A diverse group of ppl will be on the panel (men/women and a minority at the least) . The State asks every candidate the same question (each agency is different). Be prepared to provide real world work experiences to each question. If you're asked about XXXXX u must provide detailed examples of doing that task. If you're applying for an entry level clerk job and they ask if you've ever sorted mail, one can use the example that you've sorted mail for multiple persons of a household (or office). Answer all questions like you're in 1st grade telling them *specifically* what you do/did. Every example earns an interviewing point. The interviewers will be feverishly writing down your response and will/may not make eye contact. This is not like a private sector interview.

    Interview Questions

    • The Agency director asks you (via phone or email) for info about XXXXX (at 4:35pm) and needs a response by 5. Meanwhile you're manning the office by yourself and a citizen is at your service window asking questions about their request. Your desk phone rings as well & your supervisor is on the line asking for a task to be completed. You leave the office at 5pm. How would you handle this scenario?   1 Answer
