    Engineering Geologist Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at California Dtsc (Sacramento, CA) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Fairly straightforward three person panel interview, but I was expecting more geology oriented questions. They wanted to know specific procedures and tools that the DTSC uses and has access to, so make sure to review those.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at California Dtsc in February 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online, was contacted via phone a few months later. 2 interviews total- one with the hiring manager and a couple employees and secondary interview with the deputy director and another higher up. Both interviews are very formalized, as is standard for government jobs. They give you a pre-set list of 4 or 5 questions about 10mins prior to the actual interview. This is good because you can write down some notes before you start. Overall, everyone was pleasant and professional.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at California Dtsc (Sacramento, CA) in March 2011.

    Interview

    Was contacted within a week after applying and was immediately asked why I wanted to work there. Then set up an interview a day later for a 1:1 interview. The interviewer went over what the job entailed - did not ask me any questions until I asked a few questions regarding the job. The only question the interviewer asked was basically whether money or the job itself was more important to me. I was then told they would decide in 2 weeks. Called two weeks later and left a followup message. Was not contacted until a week or two later and went through another phone interview which had very basic questions about my computer proficiency, class schedule, and availability. Waited another week and was notified that I did not get the job.
