Human Resources Specialist Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Muskogee, OK
Declined Offer
Negative Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at US Department of Veterans Affairs (Muskogee, OK) in March 2019.

Interview

This was an interview at the hospital. I want to make that most clear. It took a month after the position closed to be interviewed. This was a 3 person panel phone interview. The questions were not specific to the human resources field. I asked at the end of the interview how long it would take to hear back and was told a week. Two months latter I received a non-selection interview. Their lack of respect to respond within their own time limits made me wonder how honest an environment I would be working in. It made me question their organization, work ethic, culture, and respect for their coworkers . I am not sure if offered the position I would have accepted it. Interestingly enough another position was posted after I was informed I was not selected. I am a disabled Veteran with a master's degree in Human Resources and hr experience. The result was I didn't apply. The point of applying in the first place was to use my degree and have the opportunity to move up a GS level.

    Interview

    Performance Based Interviewing (PBI) is a selection process that uses interviewing techniques to ask job applicants questions about the knowledge, skills, abilities, and other characteristics (KSAOs) they have that are important in order for them to do a good job. Studies show that the way people behave in the past is probably the way they will behave in the future. PBI questions ask job applicants to tell about what they did (their behavior) in the past. When deciding who is the best applicant, the interviewer will look at the degree to which each applicant possesses the important knowledge, skills, abilities and other characteristics necessary for successful job performance.

    Interview Questions

    • Questions were formulaic and rote. It was clear, even that early in the game, that there was very little employee /labor relations experience in the room full of interviewers. The woman that became my supervisor after I was hired, had clearly been in the right place at the right time, with little to no competition, when she applied
      for and landed her supervisor position.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Little to no negotiation in the federal government
