    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Sacramento, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at HCD (Sacramento, CA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Panel interview consisting of supervisors from the Division of Financial Assistance, Housing and Policy Development Division, and Division of Codes and Standards. Each supervisor asked a question. It was a relaxed panel interview. Not as intimidating as one would expect. They catered the questions to specifics in my resume. They asked me to highlight things in my resume and how I would contribute to HCD's mission. What my interest is in HCD? How much do you know about affordable housing? Then, they proceeded to tell me more about each division and how I would be involved.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at HCD (Sacramento, CA) in January 2015.

    Interview

    I was tested on analysis, plus 2 interviews, both with group panels. The group was very nice, interested in my long-term goals. They did call me at work, however, which was a little uncomfortable. they had good flexibility with days and times for interview. The building is awesome, seems like a nice place to work.

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at HCD (Sacramento, CA).

    Interview

    Submitted an application that went to several different sections within the same department. Prior to that I took an exam in Los Angeles for this Sacramento position. I passed the exam, scored 80+ and was called several weeks later for an interview. There were three people who interviewed me-the former Section Chief and two managers. Shortly thereafter, I was offered the position and started two months later.
