No, there is no study guide for this examination. The Auditor Evaluator I classification is considered entry-level and typically the work you perform while in college will prepare you for this examination.
We cannot go into specifics about what is on the examination; however, the examination does not require any specific technical knowledge and is designed so that candidates from a wide range of educational backgrounds should be able to answer the questions.
The deadline to apply for the Auditor Evaluator I examination is February 28, 2014. The deadline to take the examination is March 14, 2014. Please note that these dates are subject to change; however, all candidates who have applied for the examination and not taken the exam will be notified in advance via email if there are any changes to the dates.
You will receive your examination results within 2-10 days of submitting your examination.
In order to determine your score, we perform a linear transformation on your raw score which we then convert into 6 ranks/ranges. For example, your score does not necessarily reflect that you received a 75% on the exam, just that your converted score placed you in the rank/range of 75%.
You can review the eligible list disclosure to see the most current rankings and their associated scores. The exam is given on a continuous basis so rankings may change daily. Rankings can change as a result of individuals being hired from the list, being placed inactive on the list, and transferring on or off the list.
If you are interested in a position, please click on the APPLY FOR POSITION link on your profile and follow the instructions. You will receive an email within 2 business days. If you are in the top three ranks, you will receive an invitation to participate in the writing assessment. If you are not in the top three ranks, your application will be held and should the rankings shift to where you are in the top three ranks, you may be invited to participate in the writing assessment.
You can retake the examination 9 months from the date of your examination results.
We look for people who have the following:
We provide the opportunity to complete CPA qualifying experience within 1-4 years depending on your licensure pathway. Typically, those who have passed the CPA exam receive priority for qualifying experience.
We will reimburse you for a CPA review course and/or materials up to $2,000 while employed with us. For those who pass the exam, we pay out a $4,800 bonus over three years while employed. However, we do not pay CPA examination fees.
In order to ease the challenges of maintaining a work-life balance, we offer flexibility in choosing your set work hours. In addition, our annual leave program allows for 4 1/2 weeks of paid time off each year. Although, there are times in which overtime may be necessary, unlike many private sector firms, you are compensated for each hour of authorized overtime worked.
Promotions are based on demonstrated performance, business need, and a required amount of experience at each level. You receive increased responsibilities and the chance to demonstrate your leadership skills based on your performance. You can influence how fast you may be promoted by producing quality work and successfully assuming increased responsibilities.
You will experience a dynamic work environment that includes challenging assignments and working on different teams. In general, you can expect to work on two or three audit assignments during your first year at the California State Auditor's Office. Although all audit staff work on performance and compliance audits, accounting majors will also typically work on the financial audit. Assignments typically last anywhere from 4 - 6 months and have covered topics that range from the affordability of college textbooks to reviewing how funds, received under the America Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, are spent.

In addition, we offer an alternate work week program which allows you the option to work a longer work day and take every other Friday off.
