    IPT Interview

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

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Orange County Government in October 2010.

    Interview Details

    The interviewing and hiring process at the County of Orange is tedious. You start out with a test for your position. A month or two later you hear which eligibility list you are on and whether or not you have an interview, which is not guaranteed by being placed on the eligible list. The interview is generally scheduled a couple weeks after being notified. Once interviewed, you are not given a timeframe for when you might hear the results from the interview or if you have a job offer.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Orange County Government in July 2010.

    Interview Details

    I applied via the company website. I got a call approx. 4 weeks later to schedule an interview. I had to take two assessments- one written test using Microsoft Word and one aptitude assessment to test my knowledge that would be needed to effectively do the job. Afterwards, I met with a panel of 3 people: 2 who would be immediate managers, and one from the HRIT dept. This all happened on a Wednesday, and I received an offer on Friday.

    Negotiation Details
    Nothing was negotiable. They made an offer and said that if I was unwilling to accept it, they would move on to the next candidate.
