    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at State of Michigan (Lansing, MI) in April 2011.

    Interview

    Behavioral Based Interviews. You must provide responses in the STAR format. They want a specific SITUATION or TASK, the ACTION that you personal took, and the RESULT of your action. You are penalized just for not responding in the appropriate format, which is typical of a behavioral based interview. You want to give examples where you personally were effective. Don't speak in generalities or what your team did. So use examples where you can speak on your personal contribution and how it contributed to the overall success. Be prepared to discuss at least one "failure" or time you were not pleased with your results.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at State of Michigan (Lansing, MI) in September 2015.

    Interview

    The initial interview was with a panel. Be prepared for needing to use the STAR method to answer questions. Initial interview was very behavioral based. Go in knowing how to use your previous experiences to explain possible future behaviors. Even though the questions being asked are all predetermined do not be afraid to use each question to take a deeper dive into your prior experiences.
