Associate Governmental Program Analyst Interview

Associate Governmental Program Analyst
Sacramento, CA

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at State of California Office of Statewide Health Planning in August 2012.

Interview Details – It was a great interview process with straight forward questions. Management was very relaxed and opened, which gave me the opportunity to focus on my experience and my qualifications rather than being too nervous. I had approximately nine questions and a writing assessment. The writing assessment had about ten different choices. Interview length was about 45 minutes. The interview had a panel of three. Two line managers and another upper manager.

Interview Question – Please tell me about a project you had to complete in the past that you could have done better? What went wrong and what would you have done different if given a second chance?   View Answer
