I applied online. I interviewed at Vermont Department of Public Safety (Montpelier, VT) in October 2011.
Initial contact was via phone call with interviewer, unable to reach the interviewer for several days in spite of repeated attempts. Initial interview was one on one, in state building. Building leaves a lot to be desired in appearance (don't employers think we judge them also?). Interview seemed to be shotgun approach, no focus to what they wanted. Secondary interviewers placed themselves in position of power (3 directly across the table), then asked same questions as initial interviewer. Interview lasted approx 2 hours - No breaks.
Reasons for Declining
too long to make the offer, I was offered another position in interim.
