    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at State of Oregon.

    Interview

    There was an online application which required three essays. Each essay could only be 250 words. This was difficult due to how much detail is needed to cram into such a brief space. The essay questions are a make or break to get an interview. It took about 4 weeks, and then I received a call for a phone or in person interview in Portland. The interview was about 30 minutes with three questions. It was asked by a panel of 3-4 other State economists.

    Administrative Specialist I Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at State of Oregon (Cottage Grove, OR) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Exactly 15 minutes before your interview is scheduled you'll be handed a sheet of paper that shows the questions the panel will be asking you during interview. It's fine to write out your answers - whether you leave the answers blank or you complete them (or just make notes on the paper, etc.,) you're required to hand in the paper during the interview. I had a panel of 3 very nice people who took turns asking the questions from that sheet, and all 3 took notes as you answer. Then they ask some additional questions, all of which are wanting you to use the SOAR method, so they want specific examples of something you've experienced at work, and how you dealt with it, and the outcome. Took about 20 min. Then took a timed 20-min test alone in a different room. Super super easy. They're still interviewing candidates so I have no idea about the outcome....

    Interview Questions

    • Describe a time dealing with a diverse group of people as well as with coworkers.
      Describe a time where you weren't in agreement with your "team" - what was it about, how did you deal with it, and what was the outcome?
      How do you deal with an upset or irate customer? Give specific example.
      How well do you do with computer systems/software (something like that....)   Answer Question
