    I worked at State of Oklahoma full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The position is incredibly stable with a lot of room for career longevity. The benefits, such as health, retirement, 401k can potentially outweigh the non-competitive wages for this position. Private sector pays much higher, otherwise a good place to work when they have the budget for your department.

    Cons

    Non-competitive wages, Little room for promotion and bureaucracy. Dependency on state government for budgetary matters makes upgrading and equipment upkeep very difficult. The people make the job work with what they have, however if more money found its way into capital improvements for these positions it would exponentially improve the working conditions.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at State of Oklahoma (Tulsa, OK).

    Interview

    I had interviews with 2 separate offices (both in tulsa). I applied online and it took about 3 weeks for them to contact me. The first interview was with 2 supervisors. They give you a piece of paper with several questions and take turns asking you the questions. It was pleasant and open with little stress. They said it would probably take about 3 weeks to hear back but they called me back in the following week for a second interview with 2 new supervisors. It took about 2 weeks before they finally contacted me to tell me they filled the position.
    The second interview (at the second office) was in front of 4 supervisors. Same process with the questions. The interviews all were all very relaxed. This panel told me it would take about 2 days to hear back from them and after sending them an email to touch base and show them my desire to be there they called me to offer the position!
    After both first interviews you were given a small test, with one question, which was to determine income eligibility for clients.
