I have been working at CalPERS full-time (Less than a year)
Great people who are very helpful in acclimating you to the differences of working for the state. Very respected state agency, people aim to work here.
No formal training in the unit I joined.
I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at CalPERS (Chicago, IL) in April 2015.
Asked 5 questions which are basic and straight forward and the timeframe was 25 minutes. 5 minutes for me to ask questions. five people were present and I was asked 5 different set of questions. They answered my questions and told me they get back to my candidature in a week or two.
