    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at California State Board of Equalization (Sacramento, CA) in December 2008.

    Interview

    Initial communication was to send in a standard state application plus resume
    several weeks later I was called in for structured interview with 2 people (manager plus technical lead)
    There were no real detailed technical questions - I was asked about my background, asked to describe a problem I solved, did I work well in a team environment
    It was about a 35-40 minute interview
    It seemed like a people friendly place to work, they mentioned the impotance of work/life balance

    Interview Questions

    • Do you work well ina team environment? It was difficult because it wasn't open-ended and I didn't really know what they were after - a simple "no" or specific examples of my anti-social behavior :)   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at California State Board of Equalization in December 2015.

    Interview

    The panel asked a lot of situational questions and pressed for more information regarding your answers. It almost felt as if they were trying to make you say something wrong, which was really nerve wracking. Talked to previous student assistants and they all agreed that it felt like we were being interrogated.
