    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at City of Houston (United States)

    Interview

    I was asked about 3-4 questions and then I was allowed to ask some questions of my own. I asked about my day to day responsibilities and what it is that my interviewer currently does. I was also told in the beginning what the job was, and at the end what I'd be doing if given the opportunity to work here.
