    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Kansas Department of Health and Environment in March 2016.

    Interview

    It was semi-formal panel interview. However, it felt more like a test you took in school. You sit down and they read you a list of questions. They never offered a sheet for you to read, which is easier for me. Some of the questions were basic "How do you define *insert word*" and didn't measure an employee's capabilities accurately. If you are good at memorizing answers or have done this one, very precise job for 5+ years, the process should be easy. As someone making a career transition, it was a little difficult and required me to pull from prior work experiences rather than on-hand knowledge.

    Besides one friendly interviewer, the other two looked bored. Often times, when trying to make eye contact, I'd find one of them staring off out the window. It felt very much like this was a forced interview and they had already made up their mind. Not very professional.
