    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Oregon Department of Corrections (Pendleton, OR).

    Interview

    The interview/hiring process when I was hired has changed dramatically since I was hired in 2010. The actual interview though remains mostly the same. There is typically at least 2 uniformed security staff and 1 non security staff conducting the interview. The interviewers take turns asking questions to the prospective employee and are given a score based on their answers. there is opportunity at the end of the interview for questions.
