    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at King County.

    Interview

    A "hurry up and wait" process - rush posting followed by long wait to hear about interviews, then reasonable 1-2 weeks to schedule the interview itself. Everyone who interviewed me was very nice, but they were firm on the time allocation (1 hour) so no time for in-depth questions from me.
