    Caltrans environmental planner interview

    Hi,
    Does anyone have an idea how the written exam before the interview is like?
    Is it mainly technical?
    Or technical and logical?
    I would really appreciate a feedback

    Thanks

    The transportation planner one is a mock letter...they sit you at a computer and you write to a complainant, or something similar...I think I've taken it 5-6 times. You'd think each division would share exam results... I got an offer last summer, but they would only offer me base pay, which is much less than my very first job, and less than what I make now. I've heard, however, that they are hiring people at class C...maybe because no one was chomping at the low ball offers.

    Good luck!
