Interview

Took about one year to hear back. The interview ran about 40 minutes long. The panel said they really wanted to hire me and then three weeks later got an email they didn't. Which honestly was a bummer.

You get to write out the answers to the questions before the interview. It was overall an easy and good experience. I was less nervous after being able to see the questions first.

The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at State of Nevada

Interview

I applied for the job and got a call from HR about 2 weeks after the job posting closed. I scheduled a video interview for a week later. During the interview, I was on camera but the interviewers were not. SO unprofessional. Like at least put a picture of yourself up or just do a phone interview! The interview itself was pretty brutal. 14 questions and at least 10 were behavioral. No chit chat or small talk. Basically just question after question with no feedback or conversation whatsoever. I’m extremely qualified for the position but did not get an offer. I would bet that they already had someone internal pegged for the job.

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at State of Nevada (Las Vegas, NV) in Dec 2020

Interview

The first portion of the interview was a phone call screening to advise me of what the position would consist of (WSR I DVOP) and the pay rate. Also due to COVID-19, the position would not be worked until returning to the office but in the meantime, there would be assistance with the unemployment department (DETR). Then an actual zoom interview was scheduled. The zoom interview was with the department manager and two other high positions in the department. It was about 30-45 minutes long of being asked questions pertaining to the position. Describe a time when, explain how you would handle, have you ever been involved, how much experience do you have with, etc. The interview concluded and I was told they would follow up in a few weeks. I received an email stating I was not selected but then was contacted a little over a month later asking if I was still interested in the position due to an issue with the system sending out the wrong emails. I was informed if I was interested, there wouldn’t be movement towards starting until the second week of March.

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at State of Nevada (Reno, NV) in Aug 2019

Interview

The interview itself was pretty relaxed. I interviewed with two members of the team, as well as one remote member out of Las Vegas. The questions were fairly standard, nothing out of the ordinary. What I didn't like however, was the fact that they don't bother to follow up with you to let you know the position has been filled. I understand not every company does this, but I see it as pretty damaging to their reputation as I would never consider working here again, for any position. I also specifically reached out to politely follow up and was completely ignored.

Interview Questions
  • Tell us about a difficult situation you've been in. What was it, and how did you handle it?
