I have been working at Los Angeles part-time (More than a year)
Great hands-on experience for students still in school earning their degree and flexible with adjusting work schedules based on the commitments you have with school (depends on department)
The process to get converted to a full-time employee is not as simple as in private companies. No matter how much your manager would like to bring you on as full-time, you still have to go through the usual process of waiting for the position to open to accept applications from the general public, take a test, have a preliminary interview, then score high enough on the test and interview so that you get into the pool of people that your manager can even interview from in order to fill the position.
I applied online. I interviewed at Los Angeles (Los Angeles, CA).
Once passing the written exam, the interview will be at the Personnel Department, usually with a two-member panel. The average time is 20-30 minutes for this entry-level position. I felt it was important to discuss education and any past or current jobs that were relevant to the position you're applying for. When the panelists ask questions, answer them as concisely as possible, without rambling. If you forget to say something, there is an opportunity at the end of the interview to add it.
