    Easy Interview

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at State of Montana (Helena, MT) in June 2016.

    Interview

    They provide printed questions they are going to ask 30 or so minutes before the process. Then a panel will ask you questions and take notes on your response. They also collect the sheet of printed questions at the end of the interview (so don't write anything silly on it as a friend of mine once did).

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at State of Montana (Helena, MT) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Interviewed with one AG attorney, the lead AG staff attorney and head of the DPHHS department. Positive experience. Well directed questions, personable approach. Honest in explaining duties and expectations of position. After providing required paperwork through AG's application process and making first cut, was placed in office area where a written exam was administered. The exam was a "what would you do under these circumstances" practical exam. Those questions and answers were reviewed during the interview. While I did not get the offer, and the position required too much travel for my circumstances, I enjoyed the process.

In the end, we started chatting about one of the answers I gave and the interview became more of a friendly conversation. I could tell they liked me. They told me they would let me know their decision by the end of the week.
