    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at City and County of San Francisco (San Francisco, CA) in July 2009.

    Interview

    Questions mainly asked to give examples of experiences designing and implementing programs. The department was extremely low on budget and behind on hiring for the position.

    Contractor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer

    Interview

    I worked the overnight position so the hours took some time to adjust too. I learned the ins and outs of a federal reserve bank and the fundamentals of a banking clearing house. Management was thorough and knowledgeable, friendly and committed to running a smooth operation. My co-workers were friendly and helpful. The hardest part of my position were the hours, it took more time than I had expected to adjust to working overnights and still maintaining my home life balance equally. The most enjoyable part of the job were the co-workers

    Interview Questions

    • I really enjoyed working at the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco (Salt Lake City Branch). My co-workers were very friendly, organized and helpful. The general management was professional yet cordial and showed respect to all employees no mater their position.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at City and County of San Francisco (San Francisco, CA) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Long waiting periods during process. Interviewers seemed very disinterested. First interview was a phone call with 4 other people, who never introduced themselves when they spoke. The questions were emailed to me at the start of the interview, and it was not clear how I was supposed to proceed. The questions were all very generic, and had nothing specific to the job.

    Interview Questions

    • I don't remember any of the questions but I know they were generic enough to be found on any job interview prep site/ article.   Answer Question

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 12+ months. I interviewed at City and County of San Francisco (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    A panel interview for about 30-40 minutes - the usual behavioral questions. Nothing too unique.
    You just have to convince them you are the right candidate, either because of your experience, or your attitude (in case you don't have the experience). Of course, its subjective (like anywhere else), so make sure you smile, be friendly and dress sharp..Oh, and be yourself - that's always the key :)

    Clinical Social Worker Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at City and County of San Francisco (San Francisco, CA) in March 2010.

    Interview

    This was a contract position, so it didn't require the usual testing to be placed on a list process that is common for City and County jobs. I submitted my resume, was invited for an interview, and then completed the hiring process with another company that administers pay and benefits. Technically, you are an employee of the contracted company, but you are hired, supervised/managed, and even fired (if that comes up) by employees of the City and County.

    Interview Questions

    • It wasn't a technical question at all, just pointless. I was asked what my zodiac sign is.   2 Answers

    Negotiation

    No negotiations- contract position.

    Interview

    Pretty standard interview process. I received a call from a hiring manager about one week before the scheduled date of the interview. The interview consisted of two panel members. I was asked how my previous educational and professional experiences would help me perform the duties of the position.
