    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at City of Sacramento in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    I received an email asking me to call for an interview. The interviewer was late, did not apologize, nor did he introduce himself right away. Two staff members interviewed me with scripted questions. I was told I would hear back within 24 hours but never heard anything. They were polite and friendly but seemed a bit scattered.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a day - interviewed at City of Sacramento in March 2009.

    Interview Details

    The City of Sacramento required a skills test prior to the interview. The skills test was grueling and lasted several hours. Candidates ranked in the top three rankings were the only candidates who were "reachable" and able to interview. The Human Resources Department is very disorganized and took months to publish the list of "reachable" candidates. Once the interview took place; however, the panel of interviewers were very professional and bright.

    Negotiation Details
    Negotiation was out of the question. Each position has a set salary.
