    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Washington State Auditors in December 2014.

    Interview

    The interview was conducted by four agency employees; one regional director and three audit managers. After introducing each of the interviewers, they started asking their questions: tell about yourself, describe what does the agency do, how did your previous academic and professional experience prepared you for the position, etc., followed by few behavioral questions. Finally, after about 40 minutes of talking, they asked me to complete a 30 minutes writing assessment test comprised of only two questions. Overall, the tone of the interview was friendly, but very professional.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Washington State Auditors (Seattle, WA).

    Interview

    Interview is conducted using behavioral questions. Best to use the STAR method of answering. Be on time, do research on what they do before the interview - you will be asked if you know what they do. They have a website - don't say that you couldn't find any information. Dress professionally - not trendy, and, for women, no low-cut blouses. Look your questioner in the eye and answer the question that was asked. Don't try to BS the interviewers - after all they are auditors and fraud investigators. They know how to interview people and can tell when you are trying to manipulate them.

    Interview Questions

    • Can you give an example of a situation in which you successfully managed your time on multiple projects?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation. It is a set salary.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Washington State Auditors (Tacoma, WA) in May 2010.

    Interview

    I was interviewed almost immediately approximately 2 days after I applied.

    During the interviews, I was given a thorough understanding of the work the state auditor's office performs, the expectations of those that worked there and the ability to ask any and all questions I had about the opportunities available. Most of the auditors I interviewed with gave me their contact information and strongly encouraged me to call or email with any questions I had.

    After my 2nd interview (during interviews I met all assistant audit managers and the audit manager) I was offered a job by the team's audit manager.

    Interview Questions

    • Provide examples of how you handled difficult situations with those you worked with   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Upfront, You know the salary range and benefits when you apply so there is no surprises there. The only negotiation I had was when I would start, they respected my giving 2 weeks notice to the job I left but communicated if I could start earlier they would welcome that too.
