    CPS Investigation Worker Trainee Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Copperas Cove, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Texas Department of Family and Protective Services (Copperas Cove, TX) in June 2017.

    Interview

    If you really want to get into this field, the interview process will be a little nerve racking, but it is not bad at all. You sit with the regional hiring manager and the supervisor from the unit that you applied. They ask you a series of questions that are situational. The hiring manager and supervisor are very professional and personable. It made the interview a lot easier with how great they were in just talking to you like a normal person. Once the interview is concluded, you shake hands and go on about your way.
    If you are selected you will not know right away, but they will submit you for the background check. After that is completed and you are clear, they will conduct a reference check with the references you provided. Finally, if all comes back positive, you will be offered a position.
    The process time may be shorter than what I had to wait for because right after my interview, they were placed on a hiring freeze. If this is something you really want, I suggest that you be persistent and do not lose hope. Good luck!
