    I applied through other source. The process took 2 months - interviewed at County of Sonoma in May 2012.

    Interview Details

    Had to know someone to get through HR. Conversed directly with senir manager. Did not go through HR. Tried to get other positions through true process of HR and have been unsucessful. Screening is outdated and irrelevant to jobs.
