    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Orange County Transportation Authority in January 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online and had a telephone interview a few weeks later. Only if telephone interview went well, would I be invited to an office interview. Received a request for in office interview a week later. Interview scheduled for the following week. Met with all the principal individuals in the department plus a couple of HR representatives.

    Each asked a list of predetermined questions regarding behavioral situations to assess your personality, and perhaps skill set. I suspected they already had someone internal in mind for the position and was interviewing outside candidates as protocol. Many agencies like this favor interns and other internal candidates and, although illegal and would never admit to it, go through the motions of interviewing outsiders just to offer the job to the internal candidate. It happens more often than not, and is more widespread than believed.

    Application

    The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Orange County Transportation Authority (Orange, CA).

    Interview

    I was first contacted by someone who set me up for an interview. I met with two people who were very nice and thoroughly explained the interview process. One interviewer reviewed my resume and application and verified information and asked me a few questions about my previous jobs. They then took turns asking me situational type questions. There were probably about 7-8 of those questions and then we finished with my own questions. I was offered the position about a week later.
