    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at City of Philadelphia (Philadelphia, PA) in November 2019.

    Interview

    I live in another state; had a phone screener that was pretty short and mostly telling me about the position. I found this to be odd as most screeners are asking the candidate questions. My second interview was over 2 months later and a technical interview. The technical consultant seemed to have odd questions given the subject material but was fine. Got a rejection over a month later before the third interview. Overall, interview process was mostly fine and cordial, but it's pretty insane that they want talent but the interview process takes 5+ months. Most people won't wait for any position that good unless they have a spouse supporting them.
