    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Arizona Department of Transportation (Phoenix, AZ) in June 2017.

    Interview

    The whole thing was a very ordinary process, no curve balls or anything like that. Applied online, got a phone call to come in and interview.
    Sat down with a panel of 3 older women who asked me questions. They utilize the STAR process, so if you're unfamiliar with the STAR model I would read up on it. Interview lasted an hour or so.
    What made the whole deal a negative experience for me was that they made it very clear they would be contacting all applicants the following week. According to the interviewers, whether you were hired or not they would give a courtesy call.
    I never received any courtesy call.

    Interview Questions

    • Every question must be answered with the S.T.A.R. method. If you don't know it, Google it.
      Questions were basic: tell us about a difficult situation you had and how you overcame it. Tell us about a time you had to act quickly under pressure.
      Tell us about a time you disagreed with a manager.
      Tell us about a time you improved the process of your work.
