    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation.

    Interview Details

    After I sent my application by mail, I received a letter with an interview date and details for a week later. When I arrived, I received a packet of papers to fill out. Most were basic forms pertaining to references/address/social security and criminal history background information. The last page of the packet was an essay style question to test writing skills and knowledge on internal controls. I believe you are suppose to have a set amount of time to do this packet, but they were running behind so I basically had as much time as I wanted. After that, you go into a room with a computer and do a timed excel/word activity. After that, i met with a panel of three people. There I was asked some behavioral questions and also to define abatement and reimbursement.
