    Application

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at California State Board of Equalization.

    Interview

    They first asked for a resume, cover letter, and multiple forms, along with an official transcript. It took a couple months for them to get back to me. They asked to schedule an interview the next day. The interview was a group interview with just a few questions and opportunity for you to ask questions. Overall, it was an average experience. Nothing too difficult.

After two to three weeks, one of the interviewers called me to let me know they like me, but need to wait for human resources to hire me. One month later, I was officially hired.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at California State Board of Equalization (Sacramento, CA) in January 2014.

    Interview

    Sent in my application snail mail and got a call to invite me in to take the written portion of the interview. Then after I passed the written exam, I had an interview with 2 managers that same week. They asked me standard questions about why I wanted to work here and why i thought I would be a good candidate. They had a list of questions and even let me see the questions while they wrote down my answers. The written exam was about sales and use tax which they provided a pamphlet and to file a tax return. It's a math problem but it's basically reading comprehension.
