    Environmental Investigator II Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Texas Commission on Environmental Quality.

    Interview

    This was a phone screen interview. 2 people asked 4 question and this was to see who would be invited back for an in-person interview. I was pretty disappointed that these folks would make you jump through these hoops, especially this kind of interview, for such a low-paying position.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Texas Commission on Environmental Quality in July 2017.

    Interview

    Emailed an application and received a phone interview that was short and fairly straightforward. Interviewed on-sight. There were a series of 10 questions that we also pretty straightforward. I was given a written question that I think was mainly to assess my writing ability, since that is one of the job requirements. The staff that interviewed me were friendly and competent and the interview was pleasant.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Texas Commission on Environmental Quality.

    Interview

    I interviewed to become a Watermaster Specialist. Two people interviewed me. Only one spoke but they both wrote down my answers. First they did some "housecleaning" as she called it which was just asking if I would be able to start on a certain date and those kind of questions. Then they had a paper with prewritten questions which they went through with me. She let me skip a question then go back to it at the end (but I didn't get the job so I don't suggest that) Then they let me ask questions. That was it. No test or anything else.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    I had to write a test complete with essay. Then I sat through an interview that lasted two hours. The entire interview lasted approximately 3 hours. It usually takes this agency a long time to call people back to offer a job. I only waited 30 days, however I have heard from several people who became employees, that they hadn't heard back for up to 6 months after the interview. It is so slow because the applications, interview summary etc has to go through so many different levels of management.

    Accountant I Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Austin, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (Austin, TX).

    Interview

    The interview was very long, closer to two hours than one, but overall a positive experience. Questions were given to me for review a few minutes before the interview. The interviewers were looking for specific answers, but would occasionally guide me towards the correct answer. I applied through the transitions pool, which contributed to the long process time. They contacted me when they felt there was a position available for which I would be well suited. Many people are hired this way, and is a great option to get a foot in the door. It took about three weeks from scheduling the initial interview to starting the job.
