Tax Compliance Officer Interview

Tax Compliance Officer
Irvine, CA

I applied through other source and the process took a day - interviewed at California State Board of Equalization in July 2011.

Interview Details – Received a call from BOE office to make an interview appointment among many other job applicants who were to be interviewed. The interview consisted of a three person panel, one of whom was a supervisor. At the interview, they handed me a sheet of predetermined questions asking me to explain how my past experiences, skills, and personality would make me a good tax compliance officer. One question asked me how I would proceed in collecting accounts. The panel had many interviewees scheduled over multiple weeks and expressed slight signs of fatigue from the process. From what they told me when we began discussion, they apparently didn't even look over my resume that I took the time to specifically tailor for the position: their initial comment on where I worked previously (in a related govt. office) was completely off the mark. Based on this experience, I would say an applicant should just prepare for these situational questions and not worry too much about the details in applying as hiring is mechanical and a mass-process.
