    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at County of San Joaquin (Stockton, CA).

    Interview

    I attended the first interview with three managers. The questions were typical discovery questions to test knowledge and gauge experience. All managers were respectful and pleasant to interact with. The interview took about 30 minutes.
    I was contacted the following week and was asked and accepted a second interview.
    I met with two managers who again were very pleasant. I felt like the meeting went well. Questions regarding my experience were asked during this time.
    I was told that I would be contacted early the following week; however, I received a call that afternoon offering me the position. I accepted the offer.

    General Dentist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Stockton, CA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at County of San Joaquin (Stockton, CA) in February 2018.

    Interview

    Scheduled online and upon early arrival I waited for a staff member to escort me in from the main lobby which was staffed by a general (multi department) receptionist. Once inside, we met with the current dentist and other staff member in a restricted windowless storage room. The dentist inquired about my background, where I was raised, commented that I may be overqualified (red flag), then we exchanged some personal/professional details. My impression was that he seemed moderately interested in my application and experience but no offer was made. Then as a group we went on a brief tour of the operatory area. After this the same staff member escorted me back to the lobby and briefed me simply saying that all applicants automatically receive an interview and a hiring decision will be made within a few weeks (second red flag). The pace and level of this less than one hour encounter was low key and general as their services are primarily extractions and palliative procedures for a confined population of adults.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at County of San Joaquin.

    Interview

    The County conducts a test and a ranking list is generated based on the result. The test is about 1 1/2 hours and has basic questions regarding office procedures, etc. If ranked within the top 3 tiers, then you may be called for an interview from the hiring department. You remain on the list for one year. I was interviewed by two employees and was asked to go through a background investigation. The investigation took two or three months.

    Interview Questions

    • The interview questions were all actually very typical. The only thing I recall as being difficult was not knowing county terms. So, when that arose, I had to ask for clarification. Not a big deal, but not what you really want in an interview situation.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiations. With the County, everything is by a certain pre-determined procedure.
