    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Colorado Department of Health Care Policy and Financing (Denver, CO) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and was emailed about two weeks later by Amanda to choose from multiple interview times and dates. When I asked how many applicants were interviewing for the position, Amanda said that Human Resources culls six potential resumes meeting the criteria.

    Here's the rub. I interviewed twice for this position. After the first interview I received an email about six weeks later saying they were retooling the posting and I was welcome to reapply. So I reapplied. The second interview was almost identical, with a few questions changed. But in the second interview, the supervisor was sort of smiling much more than before, and I was most definitely not in on the joke. And here is the punch line. They already had somebody for the job. But the way they get around legitimately hiring a qualified applicant, in order to hire friends or family who may or may not be qualified, is to get them on as a temp. They don't receive benefits (other than PARA), but the job description is tailored such that after the nine-month temping period, they get the job. But applicants still get the schpiel, take time off of work, trundle in to the office, only to have absolutely no chance of being hired. Sort of shady, and a good explanation of the weird smile.
