Sacramento Municipal Interview Questions & Reviews
Getting an Interview
Financial Analyst Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 6 months - interviewed at Sacramento Municipal.
Interview Details – Civil service requires you to take a screening test which is fairly rigorous. If you pass you will be put on a list of qualified candidates for future openings. Then if there is an opening you will be called for a panel interview using the behavioral interviewing technique. You will also have to pass a background check, drug screen, and pre-employment physical.
Interview Question – Can't really think of one that was too difficult. Answer Question
Reason for Declining – I was not pleased with the quality of the interview. It was disorganized and a bit unprofessional. Nothing rude or inappropriate; they just didn't seem to have their ducks in a row. They canceled and rescheduled me, then when I arrived 2 out of the 3 interviewers were late (20+ minutes). Before the late ones arrived the one interviewer asked me if I could possibly reschedule (again!) I said NO, and then the interview eventually took place. I had another offer in hand and I accepted it rather than work for SMUD.
