    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Texas Department of Family and Protective Services in December 2016.

    Interview

    No communication, I interviewed with this company and received no communication as to why I didn't get the position. It reflected from the website but I know I was more than qualified for the position as well as some of the current members on staff? Know why? Half can't spell and the other half are lazy af, not to mention the secretary surfing the web and listening to headphones while trying to conduct business? (She was early 20s) But somehow I was not selected, but I know very dumb employees that work there? Guess it's a buddy system? Oh yeah, forgot to add the hiring process is really long, maybe due to the fact there are lazy workers in place!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Texas Department of Family and Protective Services (Arlington, TX) in December 2016.

    Interview

    I applied for the position online and they sent me a stark test to complete by three days. In between my test, interview and offer letter this too about a month or so, so the process is long but rewarding so be ready to be patient. Once I received and interview date and time paperwork had to be completed prior to having a one on one so complete this once you receive it. Have your transcripts, and documents ready to make the process easy for you. There where about 25 people for the interview and a panel of 6 or so that will help assist you with the interview. You will have a one on one interview and another person will be present to define what position will suit you best with he company. I hope his helps and good luck.
