    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Milwaukee County (Milwaukee, WI) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I am not sure how long from applying to being asked to interview but it probably went fairly quickly. I had two interviews in two different locations.The first interview was great, a week later the second was uncomfortable. Just off. Two different groups of people for each interview, two different locations. They asked for 2-3 professional (management) references and the like after the first interview, then scheduled a second interview. It has been two weeks and I have yet to hear anything after the second interview so I assume I am no longer a candidate but there has been no follow-up as to whether or not that is the case.

    Interview Questions

    • Standard questions asking how you handle multiple projects, deadlines, etc. Asked by each member of the group (second interview one person dominated, however). One question that was odd to me and I felt a little confronted or cornered. It was regarding racial slurs and a scenario in which myself and a colleague would have called each other racial slurs. I did not have the answer they were looking for so I got badgered until they gave up. It then ended coldly with my gathering my things as I was ushered out the door - the receptionist didn't even day goodbye when I did. Yikes.   1 Answer
