CA CDC - How long til you got interview?

  1. 0
    I applied to California Dept of Corrections last month, scored a 98% on "exam", immediately sent a copy of my resume and application. Then in 2 weeks, I got a form in the mail to request to be considered for a job at a particular site - to include application again -- which I did. How long should I expect to wait for interview request, etc? I called the lady that the application was to be addressed to... but of course did not receive a return phone call.
    Just looking to see what your experiences have been with the CDC recently.
    Thanks

    I guess it varies depeding on which facility you are applying but mine took about a week. They left a message saying that I was placed on certain slot for an interview (it was a short notice, like three days later from the message was left) and If that assigned time slot doesn't work for me, call them.
    Best of wishes.

    Thanks. Wow. It has already been a couple weeks since I sent back all my stuff. I will have to be patient. I am ranked 2/80... so I think I must have a good shot.
    Thanks again.

    So it took a month from time I answered the inquiry til they called for interview, but when they did... it was 3-4 days ahead. Good thing I had coworkers that could easily swap shifts with me. They said that I would hear about 3 weeks after interview because there were alot of applicant for this job. So again ... patience.

    I got a letter to that effect from Salinas, but then got interview at SanLuis Obispo. They did not indicate the hiring freeze was for all prisons... hope not. But I have a job currently, so I can be patient.

    what type of questions did they ask, was it a panel, how long was the interview? I applied to the CA prison as well but i have not been called yet for interview, im a new grad though so I dont know if they even hire new grads...

    I answered the last couple posts in the interview questions thread. Hope it was helpful.

    So, update.... I was tentatively offered the job yesterday. As you can see... it took A LONG TIME! But I was patient and they updated me every few weeks. I had another job, so it was just time I was losing toward my retirement. LOL They offered me a start date of 1.5 weeks to 2.5 months out - I get to choose. It depends on the date of my honeymoon... so I am going to put it off for a bit I think.
    Good luck to everyone else.

    Hopefully I will be at San Luis Obispo - California Mens Colony very soon!!
