    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at California Conservation Corps (Sacramento, CA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    My first interview consisted of a walk through of the headquarters which lasted around 20 minutes. After the tour, I was asked to write and print out a memo in under 20 minutes based off a prompt they provided. The prompt asked for me to write a memo to the kitchen staff on how to make a pb&j sandwich. I was told to write it in whatever tone I liked. Once I finished the task, they handed me a paper with all the questions I would be asked during the interview. They suggested I write my answers on it, and told me they would be collecting the paper after the interview. I was allowed 10 to 15 minutes to review the questions and prepare for the interview. The actual interview was with the manager and 2 members of the team. They stuck to the script of questions that were handed to me. I was asked to return for a second interview that was exactly the same but there was no tour and the skills test was more elaborate. I had to create a spreadsheet on excel based on a more detailed prompt. I was allotted 40 minutes to create it, along with another written memo. Afterwards I sat down with the manager once again and two other team members that hadn't interviewed me the last time.
