Hello I was just wondering if anyone applied to the California Department of State Hospitals before and could help me out. I have interviewed and they have said to wait for 4-6 weeks for results. I am coming up on the 6th week with no news of job offer yet. They have called 2/3 references. Do they usually give a tentative offer once references are checked, or do I just have my hopes up for nothing.

Many facilities are far behind their normal hiring timeline due to COVID. I would go ahead and call them and follow up.

Civil service in NJ is NOTORIOUSLY slow; I would offer that many other states are prob so also. Esp in these C19 times.

I'd just wait 'for the wheels of civil service to move on'.

Good luck. Stay safe & stay strong. :yes:

I would email the human resources department or call and find out whats going on. Usually if they call your references then it's a good sign! Which facility did you interview at? I work in one of California Dept. of State Hospitals, so if I can answer any questions, I'll try and help!

Update: 8th week of waiting and Human Resources say they are still pending selection. So no good news or bad news as of yet.
