    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Texas Department of State Health Services.

    Interview

    I applied online and was later contacted to set up a phone interview. The first interview was about two hours total, the first hour talking on the phone, followed by a written 'exam' to be completed and sent back to them within the hour. I was emailed the questions for the phone interview portion about 10 minutes before it began to prepare myself. They wrote down everything I said, so there were some awkward pauses as I waited for them to finish writing. The written assessment was mostly data I needed to interpret, or describing how I would manipulate datasets in SAS.
    After about a week I was contacted again to set up a second interview, this time without a written assessment. It lasted about 30 minutes. Again, they wrote down all of my answers and the majority of the questions for both interviews were technical (little to no behavioral questions, so be prepared!)

    Overall a very positive experience although I didn't get the job.
