    Administrative Assistant Interview

    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 The offer was rescinded due to the fact that I needed to give my current employer two weeks notice.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at State of Nevada.

    Interview

    The interview was easy. The questions were basic interview questions. You should know what the position entails. So study the job announcement. Practicing the other interview questions on here was a big help.
    At the end, I asked them, "What's the best part about this job?" and they really opened up. I think that helped me. I've heard that the questions you ask are often more important than the answers you give.

    Family Services Specialist I Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at State of Nevada (Las Vegas, NV) in June 2016.

    Interview

    The process can take quite a bit of time. I was invited to take the test around 3 months after I applied, and invited to interview around 1 month after that. My scheduled time was about an hour before the actual interview. In the invitation email, I was told they scheduled time to go over paperwork, but if your paperwork is in order, that only takes about 15-20 minutes. Everyone I spoke with was very pleasant and helpful. The interview was a 3 person panel with standard, logical questions. Know the mission statement. I did receive an answer within the time frame I was told to expect it.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at State of Nevada (Henderson, NV).

    Interview

    The application was fairly simple. I waited six months from time of application until I was sent an email inviting me to take an exam. The exam consisted of accounting and policy writing questions. It took about 30 minutes to complete. I waited another month until I was called to come in for an interview. The interview was a panel interview with three women, one of which was a supervisor. I was asked very basic questions.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at State of Nevada (Reno, NV) in December 2015.

    Interview

    If you meet the minimum qualifications you'll be invited to take the required exam "paraprofessional" - mine was about a month later. If you pass they'll call you in for an interview that took about an hour. Prior to the interview they have you complete a math quiz having to do with calculating someone's pay and maximum benefits if they are also receiving UI. Afterwards the admin person has you complete several forms ( mostly confirming your understanding of the job and some of their policies). Then she gives you a sheet with all the interview questions and gives you time to fill it out Before taking you into a meeting room where 3 women were waiting to conduct a panel interview (using the questions you already filled out on the questionnaire).
    The ladies were very nice and professional and after asking the interview questions they allowed me to ask them any questions. They also confirmed, if I were hired, that I'd be able to complete 3 months of training in Carson City.

    Interview Questions

    • Questions were mostly centered around identifying my strengths / weaknesses, customer service skills / experience, and how I handle customer conflict.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Not negotiable
