    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Commonwealth of Pennsylvania in May 2010.

    Interview

    You either have to take a test to get in or you are given a score based on your experience. Apply away, but everything at the state is extremely SLOW. You can start a new position somewhere else before they get around to calling you. Also - they are bound by Union rules, in that they have to interview "X" amount of people prior to filling a position. More often than not, an internal candidate or a "friend" has already been picked, but they have to go through the "motions" to appease the union contract.

    Negotiation

    There is NO negotiation, pay is what they offer and time off is granted by years of service.
