    Human Services Specialist Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at State of Maryland (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Interview and getting hired is rather simple if you are entry level to the field. Best to negotiate as high as a salary as you can as the yearly pay increases they advertise can easily be frozen by the governor at any moment. And stay frozen for years plus pay cuts. So go in high as you can in case freezes pop up.

    Child Support Specialist I Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Temple Hills, MD
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at State of Maryland (Temple Hills, MD) in March 2016.

    Interview

    I interviewed for this position in Prince George's County (Temple Hills, MD) and in Anne Arundel County (Annapolis, MD).

    In PG, there were around 15 of us interviewed at once with 4 interviewers. We were first asked to introduce ourselves which was limited to 1 minute speaking time. Then we had to work in small groups to arrange 5 scenarios of tasks in order by which task we would complete first to last. The interviewers shared their opinions on the scenarios and made it seem as though this was more of a task on passing off your tasks to coworkers and/or multitasking. Not sure what they wanted as it was made to seem like a prioritizing exercise. We then were handed a packet to complete in 20 minutes: write a letter given information about a client's case, interpret a court order, and follow instructions. That completed the interview.

    In AACo, there were about 7 of us being interviewed and 3 interviewers. Same process, except we were asked 2 questions.

    Interview Questions

    • When facing problems, do you ask for help or are you more inclined to solve them on your own?   1 Answer

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at State of Maryland (Baltimore, MD) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Panel interview that lasted roughly 30 minutes. I was asked a series of technical questions specifically related to the job duties. The questions may be difficult if you don’t know how to relate your current experience to the task you are being hired for. I had an opportunity to ask questions at the end. I used that time to get a better understanding of my duties and to understand the culture of the dept. It was formal and professional. Once I made it to the final round, I was asked to submit a writing sample.
