Reyup in Chicago, Illinois said: 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.

Hi, I am going to have an interview with Franchise Tax Board in 2 weeks later. They told me that there will be 2 parts of the interview. The first part is oral interview for 30 mins and the second part is a written analysis for 15 mins.
Could you please let me know what questions they will ask in both the oral and written interview.
I need your help plase. Many thanks.

Reyup in Chicago, Illinois said: 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.

Hi,
I will be having an interview with Franchise Tax Board in two weeks.
Could you please let me know what questions they asked during the interview?
I need your help, please. Many Thanks.

Hi, I want to apply for it but i feared i would be at disadvantage because i doesnt have any audit or tax working experience. Will that make me lose a lot of points.. however, i have 7as for accounting subject. Can I know what marks do you guys get without working experience.

As I know, they don't send rejection letter. Their interview is a bit slow compare with private company, so you may know to contact their recruiters or interviews to follow up about your status.

Don't waist you time. The State have been firing workers this whole week. You have not read or watch the news. They are letting workers off. They are not hiring. I work there, and I still afraid to be laid off. I have been working there for the past 2 years.

Hey Reyup - I just happen to be in FL (south FL near Ft. Lauderdale) & am doing a phone interview tomorrow morning for a state Dept. of Revenue tax auditor (II) position - not my first interview with them, not my first for an auditor position either. I'm trying to remember some of the questions I have been asked in past interviews so I can do a better & more concise job of answering them this time, plus just being more confident in general. God bless to you & the others on here - did any of you ever get any of the jobs you interviewed for, & how long did it take you to get one? I finished MY accounting MBA program online 4 years ago this month & have worked at a non-accounting job (until the company closed last year) while still interviewing for various positions, both in the field & outside it (sadly, none yet, but God willing on this or other recent ones...) Sincerely, Andrew J. Persac

Reyup in Chicago, Illinois said: Mine's on Thursday. Any info you could share?

I got called for state of Florida last week. I went in today to take a test. Was kind of weird. Some basic math questions, percentages and whatnot, and then questions like "Describe internal controls" and "Briefly describe the difference between cash based and accrual based accounting"

Hello,

They do a civil, and criminal background checks. Also, they check your credit and believe it or not, The state of NJ checked my driving records for the last 7 years. I have two speeding tickets and 1 parking ticket, and I wasn't offered the tax auditor job even though the manager wanted me to start. So if you don't have a perfect credit, civil and criminal records, don't even apply.

Also, I've been looking for work for almost 3 years and I'm an accountant with 10 years experience with an MBA. Very bad economy...........

When NYS Dept of Finance and Taxation called they wanted to confirm my full name and current email addressee. I was told this was regarding the Auditor 1 position and that they were emailing me info about an interview.

Unfortunately, I have not received the email yet. I'm going to give it a few more days.
