    I worked at Washington Department of Health full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, good pay for engineers considering its a state job.

    Cons

    No upward mobility unless someone dies or retires. High achievers are treated just like poor performers and are paid the same too. People who don't do their job well or at all are not disciplined and are never fired.

    Advice to Management

    If someone is a constant HR mess or poor at their job, start the HR write up process to get them out the door.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Washington Department of Health (Olympia, WA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Interview process consisted of a phone interview, supplemental questions after phone interview, video interview (was a finalist) and a second, followup phone call. A week later was told they went with another candidate. Process took approximately 2 months. Staff was very professional and a pleasure to interview with.
