I have been working at Utah Department of Human Services full-time
Opportunities to to change the lives of individuals. Some opportunity for growth if you are willing to move to different departments and division.
It is government.. Working for the State you are luck to get a 2% COLA per year. New employees are getting fewer benefits than many current employees and the same pay. Limited opportunity for promotion. Most new positions start at the beginning of the pay scale and can not go up as there are no step increases.
I applied online. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at Utah Department of Human Services (Salt Lake City, UT) in January 2016.
I received the offer for a phone interview about two weeks after applying. There were five people on the panel including program managers, a community partner, and the hiring manager. I heard back two weeks later for an in-person interview, which included a panel of four interviewers: two program managers, the hiring manager, and the assistant director. My references were checked immediately after the interview and I received a call with follow-up questions. Shortly thereafter, I received an informal offer by phone. Unfortunately I did not accept the offer because we did not agree on salary. Prospective applicants might need to know that salary offers could be within the lower third of the pay band and that would be considered a strong offer from this agency.
