    County Jail Maintenance Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fresno, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fresno, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Fresno County in September 2011.

    Interview Details

    3 men asked questions off a prepared worksheet, some of which they didnt know the answers to. Questions didnt seem relevant to the job description.
    They had difficulty explaining some of the questions when i asked about them.
     When you go to a face to face interview, you expect to give examples of how you tackle certain situations, how well you work under pressure and with others, and what some of your skills and strenghts are.
    This interview gave zero chance of this. I couldnt give them references, accolades or certificates, or even my last performance review.
     A real disspointment.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fresno, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Fresno County in March 2011.

    Interview Details

    Submit online application, then mailed written exam appointment. Wrote about 1.5-hour exam in a room with about 100+ people for the same position. Mailed the results. Top 7 means will be called by department for in-person interview. I was #15 and got called only after four (4) months for an interview, as each County department called people from the list and hired who they wanted.

    Called into a conference room with four managers and supervisors, who asked standard questions such as job experience, strengths, weaknesses, willingness to do specific duties and functions, familiarity with procedures, etc.

    Called on the phone after two days with job offer. Starting date two weeks after phone call.

    First three days consisting in the on-boarding process of introduction with a number of other new hires in various positions. Rules, regulations, govt procedures, etc., were covered. First time in the office is always the afternoon of the third day.

    Interview Questions
    • Typical job interview questions so nothing was unexpected. Be ready to describe your 'weaknesses', 'strengths', 'challenges', 'accomplishments' and how well you work with others to solve problems, tight deadlines and overwork.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation whatsoever. The net salary you will actually get in your paycheck is about 65% of the gross so be aware of that - due to all the deductions like taxes, pension, Union fees, health insurance, etc.

    Account Clerk II Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fresno, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fresno, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Fresno County in January 2009.

    Interview Details

    I was already working with Fresno County when I applied for a higher position. I applied online, was invited to a written test, then eight months after that, called for an interview. I had heard excellent things from co-workers about the office that invited me for an interview. They asked several questions about my experience and interest in the work they described that would be part of the job.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    I was given an offer of a job and accepted it, no salary was discussed; however from the online job offer, I had an idea of the salary. They actually promoted me to more money than what I was then earning, which they didn't have to do. From what I understand, many of the positions with Fresno County (under management) are not negotiable; we are just happy to get a good, secure job with excellent benefits!
