Vince, we're talking about a position as an auditor with the state of NY.

I did interview with the California Franchise Tax Board as well, but I don't know anything about the Board of Equalization.

They told me the same dates you guys are talking about here. Can you believe about 150 had to be interviewed because they all scored 100? State law requires it.

I was hoping to hear something this week, if I don't hear by Friday, I'm gonna call on Monday. Just don't want to bug them too much, I'm sure they're getting a ton of calls.

Don't call they will call you if you are selected. The person you will talk to, will have no clue on the interview, believe me. Just sit, and wait. You guies will be fine.

No just the Manhattan office. I called the BK office and she told me they had about the same number of candidates. To be honest i think we all need a bit of luck here. For the Manhattan office the last number i heard is that they are looking for 14 people out of the 150. I hope BK is looking for more than 14.

Take it easy. They will call you by the end of next week. I used to work for the dept. and they called me 2 weeks after the end of the month. It is not 2 weeks after the interview. Good Luck!

Vince,
The interview with NY was very unstructured, just asking about yourself and a few specifics about your resume.

I interviewed for California Franchise Tax Board a while back, that was much more structured. Asking how you would handle a situation where you disagreed with a more senior auditor and things like that. Can't remember anything else, if I think of it, I'll post.

The NYS positions are suppose to start on the 25th and i think they are betting the budget will pass by then because the 22nd is the last day for the state congress current session.

So we should hear back as soon as the budget passes in my opinion unless your district is still determining who to select.

The Manhattan office asked for references on interview day but my references told me they haven't been contacted.

Anyone who interviewed in the Manh office had their references contacted?

Hi everyone
I interviewed for the tax auditor trainee position in Buffalo about 2 weeks ago, and I just heard back from them on Monday. Obviously every office is different. My guess is since the start date is on June 25, they will probably make all their decisions within this week.
Best of luck!

Thanks!
I just graduated, so I only had an accounting internship. My score was 100
My start date would be June 25, I will receive an offer letter in the mail. They mentioned there will be training and orientation in Albany (but nothing is set yet). Hope you get the job, maybe I can meet you!
I don't think they contact any of my references, but I know they did contact my professor for another candidate from my school.
Hope this helps. Good luck!

ah sorry i didnt mean to make anyone freak out! i figure every little bit of info helps esp in this tough environment.

just curious, did everyone here go through recruiting season with public accounting firms, or you always knew you wanted a job with the government?

my guess is since they are on a hiring freeze, it is taking some locations longer to get approval?

i interviewed on may 22...my professor is the one who told me that she got contacted for someone else, but i didn't ask who. I dont know anyone from Albany...sorry. Did they ever tell who how many positions they are trying to fill? I think they told me there were 20 positions in Buffalo

standard time for employers to give you notice is two weeks before the start date. I think today is the last day they will be contacting canidates because the start date is june 25th
