    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at City of Alexandria Virginia (Alexandria, VA).

    Interview

    An hour with 2 staff and the supervisor. It was mix of technical questions and behavioral questions. Some questions were multi-part so you had to pay attention and answer completely. I'd suggest brining a pen and pad of paper to write the key points of the question as it is asked. They would usually ask follow up questions after my answer. The interview process feels a little cold or unwelcoming.
