    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at California State Auditor.

    Interview

    First contact was for a phone exam. An audit Principal and Senior asked certain questions regarding accounting and auditing.

    Second contact, upon the successful phone exam is a written test. Two essays with a time limit regarding how one would proceed with a certain audit.

    If successful with the written examination, the third contact is an interview with an audit Senior and Principal, and then an audit Deputy.
