CA State Hospitals/Prisons

    Anyone currently trying to get hired at a CA state hospital or prison? I'd like to connect with anyone currently going through the process or interested.

    Had an interview and my references were checked, just waiting for a yes or no at Coalinga State Hospital.

    I ranked 5 with a score of 82. I had my Hiring interview on January 9, 2013. I think they checked my references because my references called me saying they did and they mentioned good things about me. So, I don't know for sure If I am hired or not. If so, Hopefully I get to see you at orientation!

    At Coalinga? I'm in the exact same situation, same interview day. When did they call your references? Good luck to both of us

    Maybe 2 days after the interview. They DID mention the results will be in 4-6 weeks. So I guess, we just have to wait.

    Hi Cobee I'm interested in applying to Coalinga State Hospital and was hoping you might clarify some things for me. So from what I read, i have to apply for examination first and then I can apply for a job. Is the examination an actual test or is it an oral interview? Also how long did it take from when you sent your application for examination until they scheduled your exam? Thanks for any info you can provide and good luck with your own hiring.

    Hi ck539, I sent in paper apps to a lot of the state hospitals in June 2012 and got a letter in August to do the oral exam in Salinas in Sept. I got a different job so I didn't pursue anything, but in Dec I got a letter from Coalinga with an interview date. So I guess you can apply to positions too, but if a facility needs people they will just contact you directly with an interview date. So it took me a long time to get in, but I guess it depends on when they need people.

    Oh and the exam and interview are preselected questions that you answer orally. Good luck!
