Interview

So my interview was scheduled for 1:15 pm at the Holliday Unit in Huntsville, TX. When I got there, there were many people there waiting to be interviewed. While sitting there, I overheard the lady that signed me in tell another employee they had 50 interviews because 50 people applied, which was my first red flag (they didn’t actually go through to see who was most qualified). I waited about 30 minutes and was finally called in for my interview. It was the warden of the Holliday Unit and the supervisor of the administrative department doing the interview. Well when the interview started, the warden asked me a question of “Briefly describe a difficult situation and how you handled it”. I proceed to give my answer, trying to explain myself as thoroughly as possible in order to leave them with solid information about myself and my work experience. While I was doing that, the warden cut me off in the middle of me explaining and said “You’re giving me too much information...” Mind you, I’m going up against 50 other candidates so I’m actually trying to give as much information on my experience as possible in order to stand out and try to land the position. She cut me off during a later question because they were really only looking for one word answers. The looks on their faces didn’t even act interested to even be there and they were rushing. I honestly think they had a candidate(under the table, someone they know personally, a friend) already picked out in their mind and were pretty much wasting the time of 50 people. I have never seen a company not want to know your experience and what you have to bring to the table. I’m sorry but you’re not going to get to know me it’s one word/sentence answers, especially out of 50 people. This took place December 2020.

I applied online. I interviewed at Texas Department of Criminal Justice (Austin, TX) in Jul 2020

Interview

Extremely brief. Lasted only about 15-20 minutes, including the questions I asked. They only asked me four pre-written questions. It felt bureaucratic and there was really no opportunity to speak to my personal background and why that might be helpful in doing the job. Overall, seemed like they didn't care, which is probably why there is such a high turnover rate with the PO's.
