    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at City of Salem Oregon in October 2016.

    Interview

    I spoke with the Building Department division manager and eventually the city manager. There was an initial phone interview, then a 1-on-1 interview with my direct supervisor, and then an interview with the City Manager.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions were mostly, "Why do I want this position?", etc. I'm a long-time engineering professional, so the resume basically speaks for itself.   1 Answer
