    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Long Beach City College (Long Beach, CA) in March 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online, and attended 2 interviews following a written exam that tested for basic clerical skills. Both interviews are recorded and the process was thorough. I was notified through email for the first interview, and called for the second. The interviews are not daunting, but do emphasize a background in working in the higher education system, so do keep that in mind.

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Long Beach City College (Long Beach, CA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Sent typing certification.
    Applied online.
    Took test got 80% no interview. Person has to score 94%. Other parts of the government it's 70%.

    Test is based on knowing word, excel, simple math, and customer service (trick questions). The test was poorly written. Other parts of the government the test would be written 100% better.

    Probably hired an insider. All of this is smoke and mirrors. Don't bother unless you think your going to get 90 percentile or 100% just for admin job.

Also, we always have a "pretend" lecture for 10-20 minutes. For an adjunct part time job, we just showed up. Most times, I have got in when we needed a last-minute opening.
