    Consumer Affairs Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Los Angeles County (Los Angeles, CA).

    Interview

    Very inefficient. I live outside of California. It was impossible to reschedule an exam period in advance due to HR having a tendency of giving me last minute rescheduling decisions with less than 2 weeks advance warning, despite me specifically requesting at least a month's time in advance in warning.

    LA County's civil service exam was computerized, but unlike other agencies, they did not administer it through computerized testing centers. HR stuck with a very inefficient method of having applicants download, write out, and sign an "official" rescheduling form that must be submitted with documentation proving why we can't make their test date. On top of it, it took them forever to get back to me.

    Interview Questions

    • Why can you not make the initial test date we scheduled for you?   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Los Angeles County (Los Angeles, CA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    After passing the exam, there are two interviews. Both of which included two interviewers. It is extremely difficult to determine whether or not you are giving the interviewers the right answers (it all depends on what they are looking for).

    Internal Auditor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Los Angeles County in December 2016.

    Interview

    I had the interview at the Auditor's office in Downtown LA. You go into a room and fill out forms and wait for them to call you to meet your interviewers. They ask you behavioral questions and some questions on what you would do in a certain situation. There was no time to ask them questions about the job or experience.

    Interview

    I applied back in February of 2016 for the position. At first, I was unable to make an interview round in April/May, so I figured I wouldn't hear back.

I accepted the interview and was interviewed in a panel of 3 people, one safety inspector and two other safety assistants, if I'm not mistaken. I will hear back this week.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 12+ months. I interviewed at Los Angeles County (Los Angeles, CA).

    Interview

    I applied 6/2015 but I don't recall when I tested. I did an interview 3/15 and didn't receive an offer. I left the interview feeling like they already knew who they wanted but needed to meet an interview quota. I got another call for another position, still with the DA office, and this interview was much more pleasant. I met with a panel of about 9 women and I did very well. I interviewed 6/9 and got an offer 6/15.
