    IT Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer

    Interview

    Be prepared for a lengthy process. The jobs was posted in November. I applied when it was posted. I never received any feed back until January when I was called for a interview. There was not standard interview with HR which was good. However, there is a panel interview with 2 managers. During this interview they take turns asking you a series of questions, where they each score your results. The interview lasted about an hour. I never heard anything back until May, and did not start work until a month later.

    Negotiation

    Very little. The state has salary ranges and steps.

    Attorney Interview

    Interview

    Interviewing at the Ohio Public Defender's office can be a lengthy process. It was a few weeks after I submitted my resume in response to their ad that I was contacted. The interview was set up for the following week. I was interviewed by two attorneys before meeting with the Ohio Public Defender. It was just one interview but it was another three weeks before I was called and offered the job. The atmosphere was very casual, with everyone wearing jeans.

    Programmer Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at State of Ohio.

    Interview

    The entire process is slow and takes at least three months to complete. It is inefficient and poorly managed. The entrance exam was created by an employee with no test design experience.

    Negotiation

    It's government, so there is no negotiation.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at State of Ohio (Columbus, OH) in September 2015.

    Interview

    A little less than I expected: 5 people in the process and none of them associated in any ay with the job I was applying for. The interview questions were straight out of the book: "Tell us about a time you were disappointed with yourself". Etc., etc. There were no questions about the actual job or how I might fit in or how I would see my role improving the job.
