    Analyst/Programmer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Sacramento, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at CSU Sacramento (Sacramento, CA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I had a single 1 hour interview with four people around a conference table. I felt like I was just attending a meeting. The interviewers were relaxed and simply went through a list of questions in a round table fashion. They all had the same list.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked a number of questions to describe experiences relating to working to timelines and the extent of my experience with Oracle and Peoplesoft, among others. Because I did not have deep knowledge, I wasn't asked specific technical questions. I should mention that in preparation for this interview, I purchased online training on Peoplesoft: SkillsVine "Learning Peopletools". It was hugely helpful and the facilitators allowed me to get a copy of a virtual instance of Peoplesoft's Campus Solutions to play around with. Hence, I had a very good idea of the technologies used and could speak on a general level competently. One last point, when I was offered the position, the pay was pretty low so I asked if I could negotiate a higher salary and found out I could. :-) Don't be afraid to ask. You might get what you ask for.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at CSU Sacramento (Sacramento, CA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Panel interview. May differ depending on what department is hiring for the position. There were 5 total people interviewing me in a room. You're given the questions before being called in to practice your responses. About 12-15 questions asking about experience in previous occupations, about what the job listing is looking for in terms of tasks/duties. They take turns asking the questions in the same order on the paper. They take notes as you answer. Thats about it. They are very nice and want you to be comfortable.

    Only negative: they take a LONG time to move the process along.

    Interview Questions

    • Experience using office equipment, computer programs, prioritizing tasks. Situational questions such as "what would you do if you knew you would not be able to finish an assignment on time?".   1 Answer

    Interview

    Great interview, I was interviewed by three people in a conference room. It was pretty straightforward, they had a list of questions that they asked me that ranged from behavioral too situational.
