    Interview

    This interview was literally like every other interview i've ever had. I was asked general and typical interview questions that are asked in most every interview. general and typical questions about job history, and professional goals. There were questions about education background and of course questions about salary requirements.

    Administrative Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Las Vegas, NV

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at State of Nevada (Las Vegas, NV) in February 2017.

    Interview

    The managers seemed as if I was wasting their time while they interviewed me. I have worked at the state before as a contractor, and had a letter of recommendation from my previous supervisor there. They also quoted me different salaries and did not present an official job description.
    After they decided to hire me, they dropped the ball, big time. They didn't ask me to sign a background investigation consent until the second week after they offered me the position.
    Management never contacted me after I passed the background investigation. The offer was rescinded due to the fact that I needed to give my current employer two weeks notice.

    Interview

    The hiring process takes forever. First you have to take a test, make a certain score, then your name is put on a list.Not sure how long your name is on the list but mine has been there for six months. If you finally get called for an interview, you could wait another month or two before a hiring decision is made. Then you may not even know if you didn't get hired

    Administrative Assistant III Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Las Vegas, NV
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7+ months. I interviewed at State of Nevada (Las Vegas, NV) in September 2014.

    Interview

    I applied online April 2014. Weeks later I had to take a test in a testing center. I earned a good score. About a month later I was called for an interview and skills test. I thought I did well on both. 6 weeks after that I was called for a second interview. I received a rejection letter in late July 2014.
    It turns out I was on a list of eligible applicants with the state. I was called by another department in September 2014. I interviewed. They checked my background/references etc. I start November 2014. It's a long process but if you remain patient you can get a job. The starting pay was lower than expected but I hear the benefits and job security are pretty good.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at State of Nevada (Las Vegas, NV) in August 2014.

    Interview

    Applied online, then waited about 5 months before I was contacted for an interview. When I got to the interview, I had to fill out a sheet giving references from past jobs. The interview panel consisted of 2 people, who basically asked questions from a form and apologized for not looking up so much, due to writing. It lasted about 15 or 20 minutes.
