    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Los Angeles County (Los Angeles, CA) in January 2012.

    Interview

    submitted an application online. About a month later I received a letter with information about the interview. I showed up and it was line a casting call. You line up many other applicants. Then we all got placed into a room to wait for our respectiv interviewers. The interview is sitting down and questioned by 2 interviewers alternating questions. Some are: did you have any trouble getting here today? Tell me about yourself?
    How did you prepare for the interview? Do you know anyone tar works here?
    Tell us of a time when you handled a difficult situation? What's your biggest accomplishment?...

    Few weeks later I received a letter telling me where I placed in the pool of applicants. No offers of furthe interviews yet. They will supposedly pull candidates from the list in order of our interview scores when vacancies arise The list I am on is good for a year

    Social Worker Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Los Angeles, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Los Angeles County (Los Angeles, CA) in August 2010.

    Interview

    Their test for the hiring process was to be interviewed by two people. They then place you on a list. I was called about a year after being placed on this list. I didn't think I would ge interviewed b/c they had placed me in Group 2. At the interview, they didn't tell me the truth. They never informed me that I would have to go on emergencies and not get home until after 9:00 pm. They never told me that I would be required to be on call once a month after passing probation [which is six months].

    After you are hired, it takes about 3 months for the paperwork to process through HR. They make you get a physical at Great Samaritan Hospital with a doctor who just asks you questions about the form that you have to fill out before the appt.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Los Angeles County.

    Interview

    LA County requires you take the exam for the clerical series. Make sure to get the highest score and get placed on first and second band as they wont bother to call if you're placed lower than the two. Got placed on the eligibility list and then was called a year later. Different departments will start calling you or will be sending you canvass letters if they have positions available in their departments. You interview for the departments if you're interested. All the departments run off a fixed script of questions relating to the position. Expect a second interview if they are interested.
