    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at California State Auditor full-time (More than 10 years)


    Strives for life work balance. Competitive pay and benefits. Tries to minimize travel. Potential for leadership responsibility quickly if motivated and talented. Can give CPA qualifying experience


    As all professional service organizations, can have substantial overtime to meet deadlines. On some projects can have substantial travel. Like all auditing jobs, can be tedious at times.

    Auditor Evaluator I Interview

    Difficult Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at California State Auditor.


    First contact was for a phone exam. An audit Principal and Senior asked certain questions regarding accounting and auditing. Second contact, upon the successful phone exam is a written test. Two essays with a time limit regarding how one would proceed with a certain audit. If successful with the written examination, the third contact is an interview with an audit Senior and Principal, and then an audit Deputy.
