Interview

Interviewed with District 12 via zoom. I am a 15 year Caltrans Engineer and wanting to transfer. Interviewers on the panel were rude and didn’t let me finish. They were sexist and ageist. Not very friendly and they put candidates on the spot and treat them like garbage

I applied online. I interviewed at Caltrans (San Diego, CA) in May 2021

Interview

Got a call, did an online interview through WebEx and had 5 other people on the call. They were all nice but only gave me 15 minutes to answer 10 questions so you had to be short and concise with all your answers. They mainly looked for people who were available the soonest and had more experience.
