    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Commonwealth of Virginia (Manassas, VA) in February 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was by far the strangest I've even encountered. 4 Person panel with prepared questions but they never asked questions outside the scope of what was presented to me on a document when I arrived. There was little if any eye contact as the panel was so busy writing my responses word for word. Not sure why they didn't record it and go back later.

    Interview Questions

    • "What would you do if a diabetic patient was not taking his medication?" totally not within the scope of the job description as the position had NO patient contact.   Answer Question
