    Interview

    Must go through individual and at times group interviews. Positive for people to have direct experience in case management and ability to think fast and make informed decisions. Interview questions focus on these traits.Many reference checks and in depth criminal history as well as drug testing.

    Negotiation

    very little ability for negotiation.

    Interview

    Applied online through USAJobs in November. I was contacted for an interview via email in early January.

One month later I was contacted by HR with a tentative offer of employment.

    Auditor Interview

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

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at US Department of Health and Human Services (Dallas, TX) in August 2010.

    Interview

    The application was lengthy. I received a follow-up call for an interview a month later. I went in for the interview in professional dress. They gave me an option to do my interview at either office location (a real plus in my book). The questions in the interview were pretty standard. What is your biggest weakness? What is your biggest strength? Tell me about yourself. Etc.

    Interview Questions

    • The only question that seemed not "textbook" was how would you react to having your audit report come back with a bunch of edit marks and suggestions? I believe my answer to this question landed me the offer.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    There is no negotiation. It's a government job. Everyone is treated the same.
