    Interview

    Good interview process but long waits (3 months+) to actually begin work. "Network" connections trump past experience in many cases.

    Three weeks after submitting an application, I was contacted by a HR rep to schedule interviews. I was not in the local area at this time so she gave me the option for phone interview. We designated a time for her to call back. A panel of three HR reps interviewed me on speaker.

    Administrative Assistant II Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Columbia, SC
    Accepted Offer
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at State of South Carolina (Columbia, SC) in September 2014.

    Interview

    I applied at the end of August and I received a call to set up an interview a week later. I had a small panel interview about 2 weeks after applying. The interviewers were so nice and warm. Being a former interviewer I must say that was an awesome panel with awesome questions that really allow the interviewee to sell themselves. I received a call from one of my references a hour after the interview telling me they called to get a precise view of who I really am. My current supervisor was really busy the next day and they couldn't get in touch with her, so they called me to get a number of another one of my supervisors. I was so shocked by the above and beyond act and I really appreciated it. Now I'm currently in the waiting game, I don't know if I will have a second interview or an offer next. I'm excited and hopeful that I will land this awesome opportunity with the state and those great employees!

    Interview Questions

    • Where do you see yourself in 5 years?   Answer Question
    • If you had two companies one that offered a better salary and the other that offered better benefits. Which company would you choose and why?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    My interview outcome isn't accurate, they're currently doing my background and reference check right now. My advice is be yourself and stay calm. Also take a second to take the question in before you answer it and don't beat yourself if you don't get this job. It's an accomplishment just to get the interview! Hope this helps you!

    Management Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Columbia, SC

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at State of South Carolina (Columbia, SC) in May 2012.

    Interview

    Good interview with a 3 member team. Standard questions. Pleasant and casual.
    No difficult questions were asked. No situational questions.

    The team answered any questions that I had honestly. Everything was very honest...even the answers that did not paint the agency in the best light.

    Age was not a factor. Once I met the minimum requirements I was offered an interview.

    Again, pleasant process and interview.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at State of South Carolina.

    Interview

    The interview was a panel setup. It was not that bad overall. There were questions to describe your accounting experience and government finance experience. The next set of questions were situational questions. Tell me a time when... They appreciate this type of answer: Situation, Tasks, Action, Response. The STAR Method. Overall the interview is not difficult at all. Give good answers and you will be fine.
