    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at County of Kern (Bakersfield, CA).

    Interview

    Initially you apply with the County website. It takes months to hear back, 1 to 3 usually, at which point they had me do a group interview with 5 supervisors. They proceeded to ask me questions which would seem common sense but only if you have been in a library or read books usually.
