    Business Consultant-SCDEW Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at State of South Carolina (Aiken, SC) in February 2018.

    Interview

    I applied in January 2018. Scheduled for an interview only 3 days before; when I inquired about rescheduling, I was told " We are only conducting interviews on Monday and if you cannot make it, we won't consider you for the position at this time; your resume will remain on file". Because of this, I went into the interview feeling rubbed rather brashly as I had to schedule time off work at my current position at the last minute. When I got to the office for the interview, I was greeted pleasantly and proceeded with the interview. When the interview was over, as I walked out of the interviewing room, I could hear (Very Loudly) " Well we're not gonna consider this candidate for the position" along with loud laughter. I really thought that was extremely rude and inconsiderate of the interviewers to display such awful and disrespectful behavior. At this point, I already know that I am not being considered for the position and do not appreciate feeling like a "slot filler" when a candidate has probably already been selected before today. Such a WASTE OF TIME!!!!!! If you are a job-seeker and are thinking about applying for positions with this agency, please DON'T!!!!!!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at State of South Carolina.

    Interview

    I applied for the Program Coordinator I position at the Department of Administration working with volunteers. I received a call about a week later to schedule an interview. When I arrived at the interview, I was told that the position was actually a social services position and I would be removing children from bad environments, possibly testifying in court etc. The position description was nothing like posted on the website. I believe this was done on purpose to gain applicants. I was no longer interested in the position and felt my time and effort was wasted. The interview panel was rude and condescending and a complete waste of time due to their blatant lie.
