    ITC Interview

    Anonymous Employee

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Los Angeles County.

    Interview

    When I went in for my interview, with a couple of other candidates, HR told us that they were doing a new interview process. It was like speed dating, there were four tables and two hiring managers in each table, and we only had 15 minutes to interview before moving to the next table. I couldn't imagine how that was going to work but it actually went pretty smooth, and we had enough time to answer questions. They asked about past work experiences, weaknesses and strengths, and just specific questions related to the position. After about an hour of interviews we were asked to wait in the lobby while the managers reviewed their notes. A couple of minutes later HR comes out with job offers for all of us. I received six job offers and I had to make a decision right on the spot. I accepted the best one suited for me and then I moved on to do fingerprinting. The entire process was fast, and getting a job offer that same day was great.

    Public Response Dispatcher I Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Monterey Park, CA

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Los Angeles County (Monterey Park, CA) in October 2017.

    Interview

    My time line is as follows:
    9/2/17 - Applied for the position on governmentjobs.com
    9/29/17- Received an invitation to the written exam
    10/19/17- Took the CAL POST Entry Level Public Response Dispatcher I Testing Battery
    11/2/17- Informed of Passing Score on the above test. Invited to the Typing Test
    11/15/17- Took Typing test and passed, then participated in the Oral Exam.

    I am currently awaiting my final notice of either not being selected or placed on a band. Once on a band, you are given a position in line basically. Once your number comes up, you're then given a Conditional Job Offer, and proceed to the Background Examination and Medical Exams. I will update this once I have new information.

    For me, the hardest part of the process so far was the test. But its not something you can study or really prepare for. Its an honest evaluation of your ability to multitask and follow directions.

    Per department policy, questions asked during the testing sessions and interviews are confidential as to not give any applicant an upper hand over another. Failure to comply with this policy is grounds for removal from the hiring process and termination if already hired.

    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    I applied online around May on the county website. I was contacted via telephone about a month later and was asked if I was interested to email one of the county representatives. I emailed my resume and got a call back about 3 weeks later. I was asked to call in that following Monday for an phone screening/ interview. I called in and was on the phone with two county workers who are in charge of recruiting Veterans. I was on the phone with them for about 40 minutes. The interview was pretty straight forward. Can you relocate to the Los Angeles area? why do you want to work for the county? How proficient are you on Microsoft Office? What is a weakness and strength? and a few more. After the interview i was told they were going to pass on my name for a second in person interview. Shortly after the phone call i was called to set up another interview in LA. Second interview was involved a panel of 3 directors. Interview was easy about 10-15 minutes. At the end of the interview, I was told they wanted me and couldn't officially offer me the position but i was basically in. An hour later i was called, I was officially offer the position. I am now waiting to start the physical exam, background-check, etc.

    A very quick interview that mostly consisted of experience based questions centered around the technology described in the job description. There are no technical questions, but you will be given a couple of questions testing your general knowledge of the technology used on the job. After the interview, you are placed on one of six bands depending on how well you did on the interview. This determines who they call first when positions open.

    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.

    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.
