    I have been working at State of Washington full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very flexible schedule, good benefits, great people to work with. In my department, the state has hired folks with a wide range of experience, which is so valuable to the work that we do.

    Cons

    While efforts are being made to move towards a more modern work environment, currently the Work space is mostly cubicles, which leaves a lot to be desired. Also wish for more natural light- some of the building can feel quite stuffy.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work! The intentional approach to hiring diverse and qualified staff is deeply appreciated. Keep doing good work to strengthen communities!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at State of Washington (Seattle, WA) in December 2017.

    Interview

    Applied directly for the above mentioned position. After initial screening they send my score and ultimately selected for phone. they asked for face to face interview but as it was far away I requested to take phone interview. Finally got conformation for phone interview.
