    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at State Compensation Insurance Fund (North Sacramento, CA) in April 2014.

    Interview

    3 person panel. 2 step hiring process. I applied about one month before I actually received an email from someone that scheduled me with an interview. They were all extremely nice and quick to get back to you. I've interviewed at another department that didn't call me or email to even tell me I didn't receive an offer. I had to call after one month for them to tell me I didn't get the job. I loved how state fund was so efficient.

    Interview

    First you must take & pass an exam to qualify to work for the State Fund. It is a timed multiple choice exam that covers math & reading comprehension. I think it had 150 questions & you had to get 75 of them right to pass. Once you pass you are ranked and as jobs open up the State Fund will call you.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at State Compensation Insurance Fund in May 2010.

    Interview

    The application and interview process was easy since it is available as an internal vacancy. Note that most of the available positions are internal vacancy postings - State Fund hires from within. Some interviews are panel interviews and some are 1-on-1, while some are done by video interviews. If you are from the outside then you will have to take the civil service exam before you are able to apply for open positions.
