The process of civil servant teacher recruitment in Indonesia is conducted every year to recruit teacher professionally. The recruitment process has been conducted and enhanced in Indonesia throughout years from pre paper-based test in 2013 to Computer Assisted Test (CAT) in the same year-present. The aim of this research is to do a deeper exploring of the current process of civil servant teacher recruitment in Indonesia through qualitative case study in which the online interview has been conducted to 6 civil servant teachers in West Nusa Tenggara who took the recruitment test in 2019. Furthermore, this study found that there are several significant differences in the process of recruitment especially for the teacher who took the test under ministry of religious affair that they did not only require to do Computer Assisted Test (CAT) but also interview and micro teaching test in which other candidate who applied to become civil servant teacher in another institution did not require to do those tests. In addition, this study discovered that throughout the recruitment process the teachers faced some challenges such as the regulation of passing grade Basic Competences Test and Personal Characteristic Test is too high and biased. In addition, the questions for Basic Competences Test is excessively subjective and it makes the participant face difficulties in answering the questions. Nevertheless, through the Computer Assisted Test (CAT) there is no more bribery, nepotism, discrimination and violation rule (cheating) in the process of civil servant teacher recruitment that has been an issue in the previous recruitment process.
