    Law Enforcement Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Anaheim, CA

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at City of Anaheim California (Anaheim, CA) in February 2014.

    Interview

    You have to really want the job to go through the interview process as there are many steps. Consisting of initial written test, background, physical and psych. This is not your average interviewing and hiring process, as it requires time and commitment. Would not want to go through the process again. But it is well worth it.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at City of Anaheim California.

    Interview

    From the time I applied to the time I started working it was approximately 2 months. I got the first email about a month after I applied. The interview went well and they said they'd schedule another one, but later HRD called to say they were ready to make a job offer. I had to check in with their HR department once more before I started, to fill out some paperwork and that same week I did a physical check up in Anaheim. They do background checks also.
