    I applied online. I interviewed at Caltrans.

    Interview

    The interview total time took about an hour. There was 30 minute written exam, and a 30 minute oral interview with 3 interview panel persons. Two panel memebers were from the same hiring division and the other from a different division. Exam was easy and the interview persons were friendly. Each person read you an interview question as you follow along with the binder with the interview questions in a binder they give you.
