    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Diego, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at San Diego State University.

    Interview Details

    The application process was very intensive and did not require an interview. However, I would highly recommend meeting with the many professors within the department that you are applying to in order to get your name/face recognized with the board that will be doing the hiring. You are awarded the position simply based on your application and for those on the board that can speak on your behalf/testify to your skill set presented in the application.

    Police Cadet Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Diego, CA

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at San Diego State University in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process is explained on the website, and if you are invited to the initial interview, they explain the interview process via email. The initial interview is "rapid fire" questions. It's a panel interview, consisting of three university employees. Each panel member introduces themselves, including their job titles, and then the questions begin. Each panelist asks three questions each, and they write your answers down. Prepare for Behavioral Based Stress questions. They're looking at how well you would respond under pressure, and how logical your thought process is under those conditions. You will also be competing against lateral transfers (police officers with experience), which is unfair, in my opinion, to an entry level candidate like myself. Lastly, be prepared to work a lot of overtime once you are hired. The department is understaffed.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at San Diego State University in July 2013.

    Interview Details

    Applying for the position was easy. When the paperwork was filed, I got a call from their IT Specialist asking the following:

    1. Why I was interested in the position
    2. How much experience I had in the IT field

    A few days later I got a call back asking for an in-person interview. The in-person interview was a low-key panel interview with the IT Specialist, Systems Administrator, and the Technology Manager.

    The Interview:
    They asked me to showcase my skills and competence by performing various tasks such as:

    1. Change folder permissions on Windows
    2. Reset user passwords
    3. Configure a static IP address with custom DNS
