interview questions shared by candidates
The most difficult part was they asked several questions that had multiple parts so that you would most likely have to ask them to repeat the question. This is an example. "If you had several issues happening at the same time, how would you prioritize the issues? What order would you resolve them? How would you resolve them? It's 1030 hrs. You have a presentence investigation report you planned to work on all day. It must be on the supervisor's desk by 2:00 for review and signature, then delivered to the prosecuting attorney and judge's chambers by 4:00; you just received a phone call from another Community Corrections Officer saying that a violent offender on your caseload was seen walking near his victim's home but has disappeared in the neighborhood; a gang offender reports to the office and asks to see you, this is not his scheduled report day; a rival gang offender who is not on your caseload instigates a fight with your offender in the lobby while other offenders are looking like they might join the fight. What do you do?"
Situational question was the only unexpected question for me, they asked me what I would do if I had a Dr/Client on the phone who needed help accessing a file, a nurse/customer on the phone who needed to urgently speak with me and then a supervisor who was asking for my help in my cube all at the same time.
Because they are so standard, the behavioral questions can be difficult to answer well. Think of some creative and genuine responses for these when you prepare.
