    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at Oakland Housing Authority full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Growth, perks, hours, benefits. Great Chief and ability to grow as an officer. You have many different ways to and options to learn about various units. CALEA approved department. Family feel.

    Cons

    Certain Sergeants and officers are shown favoritism and unfortunately it is the ones with bad values and character flaws. This leaks out into the culture and it affects very negatively. Male to female ratio is big.

    Advice to Management

    Overall the department is great, just the usual political issues. I believe in the Chief.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Oakland Housing Authority (Oakland, CA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    First a telephone screening, then a phone interview, then panel interview, and it ends with an interview with the Director of HR and the Director of Risk Management. Very friendly group with a tough set of questions. They was clear and concise answers to their questions. Be prepared to provide many examples from past experiences.
