    I have been working at City of Tacoma as a contractor (More than a year)


    City of Tacoma has very good benefits and compensation packages. Individuals at the City are easygoing and compared to previous employers, less conflict. Many training opportunities even outside your job description. Great atmosphere to work in.


    Even though it is not as large as Seattle, you feel like a small cog in a big machine. Talks of outsourcing work.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. Don't outsource our work when we have done all the heavy lifting.

    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at City of Tacoma (Tacoma, WA).


    I applied for this position online and received a phone call inviting me to interview the following week. The interview was conducted in a very small conference room by a panel of six HR professionals. Each of the six panel members introduced themselves by providing their name and title. After the introduction, each panel member asked me one question from a list of questions they had provided me when I had entered the room. Once I had answered all of their questions I asked a few questions of my own. I wasn't entirely sure who to direct the questions to because nobody had explained their role in the department, so I directed my questions to the office manager, Wendy, who initially greeted me and walked me to the conference room. Wendy deferred each of my questions to other panel members. After my last question was answered, Wendy hastily ushered me to the exit. I was caught off guard and felt rushed. She made no mention of when they would contact me if I was selected, so I assumed the interview didn't go well. Overall, the interview process took about 15 minutes. About an hour after the interview, I received an email from one of the HR analysts informing me that I had ranked fifth out of 10 candidates in my online application and that they would like to schedule an initial interview. This was very confusing to me because I had already had an initial interview. I assumed the email was automated and was sent in error. Almost two months later, I still have not heard whether or not I will be moving forward in the process. I suppose I expected more clarity during the whole process.
