    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Los Angeles County Sanitation District in February 2013.

    I received an email from my university's career center saying that I had been pre-selected to apply for the position. I applied online simply by submitting my resume. Two weeks later I was informed that I had be selected for an on campus interview. I had a one on one interview with a current engineer and former student from the university. Around 3 weeks later I received a call saying I had received an internship offer.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Whittier, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Los Angeles County Sanitation District in January 2008.

    Interview Details

    (1) Given 2 hours to analyze a situation and write out a plan and course of action.
    (2) Interviewed with hiring Section Supervisor and an HR Analyst covering numerous competencies; asked formal questions - lasted about 45 minutes, wrapped up with 15 minutes or so with my Q/A.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    The negotiation phase was commensurate to what my last job paid. Misleading though because the benefits package for local government is outstanding. Once you're an exempt employee you get $1,050 per month for medical plans (HMO or PPO), you get access to $5,500 per year for educational and seminar training, there is a pension after 5 years of service (2% at 55 years).
