    Revenue Auditor I Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Washington Department of Revenue.

    Interview

    Very lengthy interview... 32 questions and over 2 hours long! However, the interviewing panel was friendly, and genuine and while the questions were many, they did not throw a lot of weird behavioral questions at me ... most questions were relevant to the job, or to get a feel for what work style I have. All in all I would rate it a very positive experience, I felt comfortable and confident and I also felt they wanted me to be comfortable rather than feeling like I was in the hot seat.

    Programmer ITS I Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Olympia, WA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Washington Department of Revenue (Olympia, WA) in June 2012.

    Interview

    I was introduced to the organization at my university's career fair and was giving information about the programmer position. I sent a follow up email after the fair and was contacted shortly after to schedule an interview. It was a panel interview with the team (3 interviewers) and was very structured w/ no more than 10 questions. All questions touched on past school/work experience and the use of specific technologies/ programming languages. The overall interview was relaxed and the team was friendly. After the interview (2-3 hours later) I received a call in regards to a second round of interviews. The second interview was with the team lead and CIO. It was scheduled for 1 hour. Questions were similar to the first interview. They asked me to give examples of times when I had difficulties with customers, examples of C++ projects... typical interview questions that I had practiced for and answered w/ ease. It was also at this point where the CIO brought up the background/criminal record check. I also had the opportunity to ask questions throughout both interviews, as a result, they were more like conversations. A couple days after the second interview (interviewed on Friday and received a call the following Monday) I received a call from the team lead offering the position. I asked if there was room for negotiation in regards to the starting salary. She said that she'd get back to me; ultimately, negotiation was not an option. In the end, I accepted the offer because the position related to my major (management information systems), the exceptional benefits, and it's a solid first job right out of school.

    REVENUE AUDITOR Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bothell, WA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Washington Department of Revenue (Bothell, WA) in August 2010.

    Interview

    I applied for the position online and was contacted shortly thereafter for an interview. The interview consisted of a group/panel and each interviewer asked approximately two questions. The process was very structured and seemed to be on a time constraint as a I saw another interviewee arriving when I was leaving.

    Overall the people were nice, but the starting salary was not as desirable as it could be considering the area. The original job listing gave a very broad salary range, which actually included the salary for more experienced auditors, which is not the position that was listed. So it was a bit frustrating not to have received accurate information prior to the interview.
