    I applied online. I interviewed at City of Seattle (United States)


    The interview was about 2 months after the interview. It was a virtual panel interview with 4 panelists, including the direct supervisor. You get the questions I believe 30 minutes before the interview and there is a writing component following the interview.

    Describe your previous relevant work experiences and how you hope to build on those in this position.

We have a tradition here at the City of Seattle which has reached new heights. Fridays are Blue Friday to honor the Seattle Seahawks. Most business groups are encouraged to wear our team colors proudly, so you'll see folks in jerseys, t-shirts, or even sporting blue hair. It's sure to lift spirits to see everyone so excited for the Hawks.
