    Terribly unprofessional. For starters, these folks are still requiring paper applications with printed materials. That should be a major red flag. The process itself is typical government, slow, encumbered by superfluous processes. The position for which I applied required an associate's degree and 2 years of experience. I had a bachelor's degree and 6 months experience. They stated on the job announcement that each year of education beyond an associate's would be considered equivalent to 6 months of experience. Assuming a bachelor's degree is typically two years more education than an associate's, that equates to 12 months. So, combined with my work experience, I had 18 months of experience, right? Wrong. A couple days after the open period closed, I received a form email declining the application on the grounds of not having an associate's degree/meeting minimum qualifications. Flustered, I called HR and very professionally asked to discuss the application (assuming a mistake had been made). Sure enough, the woman was hellbent on the fact that I didn't have an associate's degree. I couldn't convince her that a bachelor's degree was two years beyond an associate's and in some ways, better. Lunacy! So I respectfully requested to speak with the person who reviewed the application. She refused to connect me with her. Appalled, I asked to speak with the HR director. Also refused access. I contacted the department head/hiring manager outside of HR. He was kind enough to elaborate on the reason I wasn't selected. It sounds like it came down to the fact that they wanted to fill the position as a level 1 requisition and because I had experience and a BA, I would have been hired at a level 2 (higher pay grade). So I guess it was a cost-saving measure and I was too expensive? I decided at this point that my efforts would be fruitless and not worth anyone's time, most importantly, mine. I will never apply again, which I guess they are happy about. I had a similar experience several months prior but figured that was an anomaly. Nope, this is standard for Utah County. I wouldn't ever encourage someone to apply here. Considering the process whereby they select candidates is so fickle, I can't imagine anyone ever finds great success being employed here.
