Workers Compensation Claims Examiner Interview (Positive Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied online and the process took 4 months - interviewed at US Department of Labor in February 2012.
Interview Details – The hiring process is slow! I was contacted by HR that my resume was forwarded to the hiring managers in February of 2012, contacted for a phone interview, then went to an in-person interview. Then I had to wait another three months to begin the job after receiving a tentative offer.
Interview Question – "Please explain how you worked with a team to compensate for multiple coworkers being away from the work center. How did you accomplish their work and yours?" Answer Question
Negotiation Details – There was no negotiation. I was offered GS-9. Take it or leave it.
Workers' Compensation Claims Examiner Interview (Positive Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied online and the process took 6 months - interviewed at US Department of Labor in February 2012.
Interview Details – The process is slow so be forewarned! I submitted my application through USA Jobs, and then I waited until early February 2012 to be called for interviews. There was one phone interview and one in person interview that took place in the Cleveland Federal building. Both were standard behavioral interview questions, so it helps to be prepared by knowing exactly what the DOL does in its workers' compensation programs. They will ask. At any rate HR coordinates all the interview scheduling and tentative/formal job offers, which take about two weeks after the last interview. I did not begin the job until June of 2012, so it helps to have a job already before beginning the Federal job hunting process.
Interview Question – Please describe a time you solved a problem as a member of a team. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – There was no negotiation! They offered GS-9 step 1 and that was that.
