    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Kansas Department of Health and Environment (Topeka, KS) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I completed the long online process and had recently moved from Florida and worked for UF so I wanted a State position as living in the Capital of Kansas now. I was excited to be interviewed for a supervisor posotion for Calls taken on Ordering supplies for the many health and enviromental test done. It would of been a great starter Supervisor position as only over 6 employees and I only have a year of prior Supervison in past employment. I still felt well qualofied with work history, skills, College, and peronality. I met with a board of 3 women who worked in the same department. One was the hiring manager who would become my manager if hired. I had brought several folders with my Resume, Refrences, College Degree Certificate and State Tax Id letter, which isnt needed in Florida. The interview went great, I answered questions well and was very confident after leaving. The same with 10 more Kansas State Career Interviews I went on. My references were called alomg with another position in different state department and went on second interview for the other job only for the other interviews hired within and one told me over the phone they dont like Floridians and usually hire within but by law must interview someone outside. Even starter positions they hire someones nephew that works there with no experience over a qualified Floridian, yet now lived here 15mths with no job success. 3 interviews ask me about childcare arrangements which I never mentioned having a son but I do so I was honest and felt discriminated beyond belief. Yet this department I had no heard an answer back from so stikl hope. 6months later I get a letter in the mail that I wasnt chosen and I found out they chose someone inside but sent email to follow up and ask for advice and feedback and never received a reply.
