    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Orange County Transportation Authority (Orange, CA).

    Interview

    I was first contacted by someone who set me up for an interview. I met with two people who were very nice and thoroughly explained the interview process. One interviewer reviewed my resume and application and verified information and asked me a few questions about my previous jobs. They then took turns asking me situational type questions. There were probably about 7-8 of those questions and then we finished with my own questions. I was offered the position about a week later.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Orange County Transportation Authority (Orange, CA) in July 2010.

    Interview

    Interview was a 2:1 interview that consisted of about 10 questions that were pretty standard/common questions such as strengths, weakness, example of team project, etc. One question that got me was "Can you think of a situation where you solved a problem in the workplace analytically?"

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Orange County Transportation Authority.

    Interview

    A lot more work could be done with the recruiting process. Job descriptions could be more specific and less generic. Depending on the interviewing department, questions could be very basic/typical. Most interviews are very routine and seems like there is already a candidate in mind for hire.
