How would you perform in an environment where the job is never done at the end of the day?

1 Answer

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.

The questions were all rather easy and typical. The most difficult was the type of question that asks you about a tough experience that you had to go through for a client and how you solved it.

What types of assignments have you done?

1 Answer

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.

I was asked some situational questions that I had not encountered before.

1 Answer

Patience is required for this job since you will be handling civilians who may not speak English or may not speak at all (by personal difficulties such as disability). How would you handle stress in such situations when you can't do anything.
