    Case Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Vancouver, WA

    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.
