    Interview Details

    I got the the interview through their college campus recruitment through the career center's job board. I was a selected candidate for an entry-level staff auditor position. The interview lasted for about 45 minutes in the morning. They were looking for candidates with interpersonal skills, some audit experience, and technical writing skills. They had asked me to describe my past experience in those three areas. I had illustrated my interpersonal skills by telling them about my past experience of gathering business requirements from numerous stakeholders for projects. I had also elaborated on my auditing skills as I have completed an information technologies compliance audit. Finally, discussed the aptitude of my technical writing skills from my past experiences creating internal control procedures, documenting business processes, and variance reporting for senior management.

    I applied online, received a call about 3 weeks later to schedule an interview. The interview was a panel interview consisting of 3 supervisors. They took turns asking questions, very strange questions, such as your biggest weakness. Also, they tended to ask different questions that all had the same answer.

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at US Department of Health and Human Services in February 2010.

    Interview Details

    The interview lasted for about an hour. There were 3 people interviewing me. Some of the questions were:

    Why Dept of HHS?
    What is your biggest accomplishment?
    Tell me about yourself?
    Do you have any experience with SQL, databases?

    Thats really all I can remember. Athough they emailed me back and said that they liked me , there for looking for IT Auditors. I said that wasnt my speciality in the interview so thats why they didnt pick me. I was just being honest. Most classes I took pretained to FInancial Statement Auditing.

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at US Department of Health and Human Services in April 2009.

    Interview Details

    As with most government jobs the process was long and protracted. I checked last week and still no decision has been reach. I applied on line and then I waited to be called for an interview. The interview consisted of a panel which included the Director of the division and 5 of his direct reports. One of which was the hiring manager. They asked a series of questions regarding my work experience. They were also willing to share some of the challenges that the agency faces and how the new employee would fit into the mix. There was a great deal of interest as to why I was ready to leave Capitol Hill to work on low profile projects. There were also a lot of questions about what it is like to work on the hill. It is not uncommon but it does get annoying. Some people will grant hill staffers an interview just to ask questions. There was some of that in this interview. Again...I am still waiting to hear if I got the job or not. It is going on 6 weeks now.

    Interview Details

    From the get-go, the interviewers wanted to find out how much I knew about the health care reform. They pretty much skipped the routine part of interview, i.e., your experience, why you were interested in the job, etc. They did ask these questions later on, though.
