The first interview seemed like your typical process...a barrage of question spoken from two sheets of paper, asked by two head employees. Then, they mentioned about a new portion of the interview process...a written sample that asks the simple questions where do you see yourself in 5 years and if hired, why would you want to work there (DSS). I did not hear anything for several weeks and was asked if I wanted to schedule for a second interview. I did and the interview was shorter, less than 30 minutes. Overall, the interview process was decent, but I have not received a letter, e-mail, or phone call stating if they wanted to hire me or not. I've been waiting since May of 2018.

8 to 16 hours at any given time. I have been on the clock for 20+ bc staff called out on holidays. Senior staff does what they want and still gets paid.

I hated going to work each morning particularly because of my supervisor at the time. This particular supervisor micro-managed and overall was not highly effective, she was not an excellent communicator and stirred a lot of drama among co-workers Get as much knowledge as you can and leave asap!!!
