Anyone had a LA County Civil Service Interview for RN?

Posted

Anyone have any experience with LA County Civil Service Interview for a RN position? i have one coming up and i have no idea what to look forward to or what to study. Any help is appreciated!

I am in the same boat. I have the interview next week and don't know what to expect. Did you have yours already?

hey actually a girl wrote back to me and said it was just a process of the application. she said she just went directly to the nurse manager instead, and skipped the civil service interview. *shrugs*. i didn't go through with it.

I am just wondering how your interview went.

I did. Interview is not a big deal. Should be a piece of cake for almost any nursing student who paid attention in classes. Once you pass, you will get a letter in the mail stating you are on an "eligible roster." At that time you can call or go to various county hospitals to check out the positions. Now, once hired is when the real "torture" starts. And I call it torture not because of the job because I haven't even started yet, but because of the wait time. I started the process earlier last year. Had civil service interview in October. Had interview with unit manager end of October I believe. Was hired first week of November, filled out background check form and did live scan finger printing. It's been over two months now and no contact from the county. I called a few times and every time their response is that they do not know how long it's going to take. They have to wait on information from CEO office in LA and that's when they can schedule me for physical and orientation and so forth, but according to them, there's no way of knowing how long it is going to take. Sooooo Frustrating! If you are willing to wait for an "unspecified" amount of time to hear back from them, go for it but in the mean time I wouldn't hold my breath for the County! If anyone else has something to add or any advice for all of us in these "county" scenarios, I'd appreciate it. Good luck to us all!
