    Low pay, Low pay, Low Pay.

    Advice to Management

    Try to encourage more professionalism. Just because it is a state job doesnt mean that we need to work at government pace.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at CSU Sacramento (Sacramento, CA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I had a single 1 hour interview with four people around a conference table. I felt like I was just attending a meeting. The interviewers were relaxed and simply went through a list of questions in a round table fashion. They all had the same list.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked a number of questions to describe experiences relating to working to timelines and the extent of my experience with Oracle and Peoplesoft, among others. Because I did not have deep knowledge, I wasn't asked specific technical questions. I should mention that in preparation for this interview, I purchased online training on Peoplesoft: SkillsVine "Learning Peopletools". It was hugely helpful and the facilitators allowed me to get a copy of a virtual instance of Peoplesoft's Campus Solutions to play around with. Hence, I had a very good idea of the technologies used and could speak on a general level competently. One last point, when I was offered the position, the pay was pretty low so I asked if I could negotiate a higher salary and found out I could. :-) Don't be afraid to ask. You might get what you ask for.   Answer Question
