    Typically rote, government-style interview. Tour of facility, met with two executive producers. They asked questions in a check-the-box manner than made me think they had already picked an internal candidate and were just going through the motions.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at NASA in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    Submitted application via email, heard back around 3 weeks later with a phone call to set up a time for a videoconference interview. I was instructed to download specific software to use for the interview. The videoconference interview was with a group of four people from HR and Communications departments. Pretty normal softball questions asked: "Why do you want to work here?" "What do you want to contribute?", etc. Barely asked about prior work experiences.
