Advice to Management
Look at a person's entire work product be you discount them. Just because they had a bad day or disagree on a topic does not mean they should be shunned for life. So of the most value people of the folks you look over.
I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Ohio BWC (Cincinnati, OH) in March 2011.
Was contacted by the legal secretary for an interview. Interview was with 2 people: managing attorney from Columbus & managing attorney from Cincinnati. Questions were standard & it's obvious interviewers aren't used to interviewing often. Hardest question was probably describing yourself and experience. None were specifically about workers compensation. I asked a few questions at the end & they both looked like they were very surprised I had questions to ask. Interview lasted about 45 minutes, and they specifically tell you that everyone is scored. Typical government process.
