    I have been working at Utah Department of Environmental Quality full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    work-life balance good, quiet work environment, reasonable benefits. There is often an opportunity for flex-time working or tele-working during the week.

    Cons

    Rigid structure with limited amount of upward mobility. Supervisors often employees that have been there the longest, but are not good leaders, or are even prepared to lead. Excellence not well rewarded.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Utah Department of Environmental Quality (Salt Lake City, UT) in January 2011.

    Interview

    Multi-person panel, composed of other section managers, agency director, and key technical staff (I.e. Subject matter experts, as needed). Interviews can be either face to face, or over the phone. Most hires result from face to face interviews.

    Interview Questions

    • Questions vary by division, and are approved in advance by HR. They usually focus on knowledge of regulatory program, technical ability and understanding, and problem solving abilities.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    No negotiation - salary set by legislature. Human resources sets ceiling for offer, so as not to cause opportunity for grievance by existing employees - so limits on what an offer could will vary from division to division.
