    Clinical Supervisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Santa Rosa, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at County of Sonoma (Santa Rosa, CA) in August 2011.

    Interview

    It was a group interview for the position of clinical supervisor. Many of the questions were thoughtful and I felt that the interviewers were genuinely listening. However, a few questions that were asked were personal, and one illegal. This question was asked by a line staff member and the question was not called into question by the supervisor

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at County of Sonoma (Santa Rosa, CA) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Applying for a job with the county can take a long time, depending on the job and how quickly the department wants to move. If you meet the minimum qualifications (for example, if they ask about your customer service experience on the application, explain specifically how you have customer service experience, even if you think it's obvious from your resume) you will be invited to take the test. If you place within a certain standing on the test you will be notified through email and kept on the list for current and future openings. Every time an opening for that position comes up, you will be notified and invited to interview. I went through two interviews and extensive background (because I work in Probation, a different department will have less background). Months after starting the process, I was hired!

    Interview Questions
