    Program Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Bethesda, MD

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at US Department of Health and Human Services (Bethesda, MD) in April 2009.

    Interview

    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.

    The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at US Department of Health and Human Services in March 2010.

    Interview

    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.
