    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation.

    Interview

    They asked five questions and had a panel of three interviewers. The interview room was hot and there wasn't much ventilation so I wasn't able to focus the way that I would have liked to. Only two of the panel interviewers asked questions and the other person just sat and observed.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (Sacramento, CA) in March 2019.

    Interview

    Was required to take a written computer test prior to the interview. The initial interview had a panel of 2. They provided the duty statement and questions for me and was asked to answer each question. After they read the questions, they do not ask you to elaborate on your answers. All they do is listen and take notes. I was nervous being my first interview so I knew I did not do well.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (Elk Grove, CA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Applied via mail (one of few departments that doesn't accept online applications). After about a month, received a phone call asking if I was still interested. I was and we set up interview.

    On day of, had to sign releases for previous state personnel file, then was led to a cramped room with would-be manager and supervisor. Asked set of standard questions. Manager didn't know what an Apple Watch is, and didn't seem too with it technologically. This was a red flag as the position was in a section that dealt with tele-health.

    As it was limited term, I asked about the possibility of the former employee exercising her return rights. Did not receive a confidence-inspiring answer that she would not want the job back.

    After interview, hand wrote and mailed two thank you notes. Never heard back from anyone, not even a quick e-mail.
