    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Texas Department of Criminal Justice (Austin, TX) in November 2016.

    Interview

    There was total of four questions asked to me from the interviewer from a piece of paper. They asked me typical questions about my qualification, why I should get the position and what I could bring to the group at large. Afterwards they asked if I had any questions, which I did. I had around 9 questions for them in regards to time off, pay, office culture, room for growth and advancement etc. All in all the interview was not the best, it felt as if they were attempting to fill a slot rather than add to their team.
