    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at TxDOT (Austin, TX (US)).

    Interview

    I'm aware this is government work, but the selection process does not need to be so rigid and structured. On the flip side, for being government they did move pretty fast once the position closed. I had a phone interview first which consisted of only 2 questions that were very structured. There was no room for questions on my behalf that the answer couldn't be pulled from the job posting. Strike #1. Got invited to an on-site interview which I was excited for and assumed I'd get a chance to ask more questions and get a feel for my working environment. Nope, didn't happen. Another 5 very structured questions where they just wrote the entire time, there was no interaction. Oddly enough, the interviewer never let the person who would be my boss speak. I tried to ask questions like a good candidate should but was basically shot down. They could only answer questions with language from the job posting. Got a call a few days later asking permission to call my current employer to verify employment.

    Unable to gauge my working environment and didn't feel they'd be a good fit for me.
