interview questions shared by candidates
How would you perform in an environment where the job is never done at the end of the day?
Child Support job is never done at the end of the day. When the day is done you will still have 1500+ cases assigned to you that need something done or some custodial or non-custodial parent that wants something done. You must get accustomed to setting work aside and moving on to the next task all day, every day.
Nothing "difficult" in the questions, just extraordinarily-awkward 'employment' package offered. The expectation was for full-time, on-site, employment, conforming to the firm's expectations of dress, conduct, and performance, yet the compensation was a flat-rate, monthly 1099 contract. When I questioned this practice, the interviewer launched into a lengthy, convoluted explanation about how it enables the firm to win contacts, by placing employees into one of five sub-contractor firms, that enable compliance with small/disadvantaged business for government contracts. All that didn't seem quite ethical to me. Further, payment of your monthly billing was to be tied to ANGARAI's receipt of payment from the government, meaning you work in October, ANGARAI invoices the government within a couple weeks, the government pays typically 30-35 days later, and ANGARAI pays you five days after they receive the check from the government, potentially in late December. The whole thing was just "fishy" and looked like something you'd see Steve Croft on Sixty Minutes chasing after as the owner speeds away, dodging questions.
