    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at State of Washington (Hoquiam, WA) in November 2017.

    Interview

    Interview process took 40 days from start to finish. The impression I received during the interview was that the panel is that they had either already hire someone or already had a candidate identified. I did not care for the email wording that I received at the end of the process. "Our selection was made after carefully considering the skills and qualities offered by each candidate and how those supported the work of the LSR 3."

    There was a panel of 4 people. Your interview questions were on a sheet of paper in front of you. You read the question and tell them which one you're answering. You can answer in any order you like. Before the interview, there was a series of 5 tests to do. All in all, it was a great experience for me. Everyone was nice and professional and did a great job of keeping in contact.

    Case Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Vancouver, WA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at State of Washington (Vancouver, WA) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Very rushed and robotic. The panel interview was 2 people that seemed nice; however it felt like they were in a hurry to get me through. They also had me interviewing for a position that I didn't apply for and I didn't correct them as they didn't give me a chance to speak. The supervisor didn't ask any questions and both appeared pretty apathetic. The next day the job was posted again and I haven't heard anything about the job I applied for. After this experience I am grateful that I didn't receive an offer as I did not get a good feeling from this location or the miserable looks on the faces of the interviewers and the staff I had to walk by.
