    Human Resources Position Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at San Diego County Water Authority.

    Interview Details

    I did not realize that it was an appraisal interview until it got under way. When interview was scheduled, the scheduler said she was calling to schedule me for an interview. I took that to mean a job interview, which was how I prepared for it. Had I known it was an appraisal interview, I would have prepared differently. It would have made a difference in the types of questions I studied beforehand.

    Application Details

    The process took 2 days - interviewed at San Diego County Water Authority in July 2011.

    Interview Details

    I was placed with SDCWA through a recruiting agency. I received an interview request on a Thursday morning and set my interview for the next morning. I interviewed with two people in the department I would be working in. Both interviewers were incredibly laid back, easy going & and very welcoming, which helped a lot seeing as I was a nervous wreck. The interview lasted about 20 minutes at most. Received a phone call within two hours after my interview from the recruiter saying SDCWA wanted to offer me the position.

    Negotiation Details
    N/A. Salary schedules and hours are not really negotiable as it is a public agency. However, SDCWA has the highest salary range when compared to the city, county, and other public agencies. More than fair!

    Public Affairs Intern Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 week - interviewed at San Diego County Water Authority in June 2009.

    Interview Details

    I applied for the job through my career website at my college. Got a phone call from them the next week asking to come in for an interview. I did a writing test that lasted 20 minutes and did an interview in front of a panel of three people. They were very nice about it, but a little nervewracking interviewing in front of three people at once. They called me later that day asking what hours I was available to work and offered me the job the next day.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation Details
    You cannot negotiate, the hourly rates are rigidly set since it is a public agency.
