    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Los Angeles County.

    Interview

    I was contacted by phone to set up an interview with the supervisor of the program. The interview was about an hour long. The interview was in a cubicle. Interview was easy and not structured, it felt all over the place. I felt like I was mainly the one speaking and asking the questions. There were no behavioral questions or case scenarios to discuss - which made me feel that I was just being interviewed for the sake of them reporting that they interviewed X amount of candidates. I was told that interviews were going to continue and hiring will likely happen after the new year. However, it has been almost a month since the interview and have not heard back. Since I am on a list, I continue to receive calls from other department programs. However, some of the departments are in cities that I did not indicate in the application.

    Panel interview with two interviewers. Very straight to the point asking several behavior questions and not much about background, skills, and education. No frills, no embellishment. Just come in the room, sit, brief intro, and they ask those questions right away.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Los Angeles County.

    Interview

    Generic interview with mostly behavioral questions. Panel of two who were already in the role or above. They seemed like they were doing this as a formality because they already knew who they were hiring. Really disinterested process. It also seemed like they were looking for a cookie cutter person who could toe the line.
