Is it normal for there to be more than one interview for trade jobs?

Is it normal for there to be more than one interview for trade jobs? Is the second interview to be offered job or are you meant to demonstrate your skills?

    frick this world has gotten gay. i remember trade job "interviews" being either a phone call or a 10 min talk session and then showing up the next day with your lunchbox and gloves. if you hadn't cut it by the end of the day or week, you got told to pack your shit up and move on

        I went through a panel interview for a part-time job in park maintenance for my small hometown (life isn't going so hot)
        I didn't get the job. Is it normal for a job like that to really want someone with plumbing skills? Because they really seemed to prefer that I had that.

          >park maintenance
          If it's a park with camping and support facilities then I can definitely see plumbing skills being a thing they looked for in applicants.
          I hope things get better.

          Yeah my first cnc mill operator job years ago was a 4 interview thing, 1 phone call, 1 meet the hiring manager , 1 hr lady and hiring manager and one owner hiring manager hr lady

          This was for a no experience, minimum wage we will train you type jobs

          I wanted to learn how to machine with out school so I stuck it out

            It has no camping besides whatever bum hides out in the creek or forest. It has one publicly available restroom shack. All I've ever seen the park workers do is mow lawns and clean and restock the shitters.

          I guess non-destructive testing/inspection doesn’t count as a trade, but when I finally got offers for it my “interviews” were a single casual event and more of a description of the job duties than an interview. Eventually, I was offered a job over the phone without a meeting happening yet. I also got offered a job as a surveyor over the phone that I didn’t take.

          Are you me? I just left inspection to go back to park maintenance and had a single panel interview too, and it was quite tough. I got the job though, which is full time and pretty good pay for what it is, due to prior experience. There was no requirement for plumbing skills though for me. In my job we don’t do that beyond basic things like unclogging a toilet.

          This describes my job situation roughly too, so it is weird then that they asked for plumbing from you. If the job you applied for is a municipal/government one like it sounds like, then I’m sure the intensive panel interview you and me got is pretty standard everywhere else.

          If you kept applying for these jobs, I would think you would have a decent chance at getting one, if you have a little bit of general maintenance/mechanical knowledge or labour experience.

            Keep in mind too, that they might have being going hard on the plumbing questions, just because they knew it was something you/people didn’t have and wanted to see how you responded, even though it wasn’t really relevant to the job.

            Unfortunately, you have to be on your A game in these tough government interviews and try to demonstrate confidence that you could learn quickly or would have a natural aptitude for the areas that they say you lack in, without sounding like you are just blowing hot air either. Of course, since it is a laborer job, I don’t think most people will be that prepared heading into the interview. Some are naturally good at talking though.

              I'm just frustrated. I've been out of work since AUGUST, and I only got my first interview in late March, but that job, county road maintenance, was looking for a shaved gorilla to do it and I'm too fat I guess. I've been to a Starbucks interview and one for Autozone which had to be rescheduled because the hiring manager who set called me, forgot he had to be at another location, in the NEXT FRICKING STATE OVER. Actually went to the rescheduled interview and spent 50 minutes with the guy. Felt good about the interview but then he let's slip that I'm 1 of 500 applicants for this part time position.

            Yeah I've tried for local government positions but my county is also notorious for nepo hiring. Could be the city was going through the motions of hiring randos but already knew they were going to hire the supervisor's daughter's dipshit boyfriend or whatever. Rural blue state in this economy is not a fun time.

              That is a possibility

          If it is a public job then they will have a process in place for all appointments so that they can’t be accused of hiring their friends and giving them cozy jobs. If it were a private wildlife park/resort then having a panel makes less sense because they would probably not have the resources to assign three people to vet you.

            It was a public position for a small "city".

          All I can say about any maintenance job is that when I interviewed they wanted somebody with no experience or at least no illusions that there’s a “right” way to do things so that they have to butt heads with some chuck who basically exists to create potential lawsuits.

          But that’s for residential maintenance.

    If you’re interviewing you’re a sucker. Just teach yourself
