    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services.

    Interview Details

    I applied online after getting an email about the position through my school. The whole process took about 3 weeks, mostly dealing with HR. The interview was with four managers of the Information Systems Division. Some basic questions regarding the systems development life cycle, but nothing really technical. There were other usual interview questions regarding past experience, weaknesses, etc...

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    Fairly painless phone interview with two people from the administration department. Asked basic questions about my background, previous employment, schooling, etc. I was surprised the process didn't include a second-round in-person interview. Somewhat awkward to try to continue a conversation with three people over the phone without a few awkward interruptions but overall fairly painless.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Washington, DC
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services in January 2011.

    Interview Details

    Found out about the position through word of mouth at my grad school; was asked to come to an interview in DC; interview was a 15 minute chat with the Center Director; was told I was being hired; long HR process to establish grade level which was highly frustrating.

    Interview Questions
    • The interview was virtually a formality - I was hired during the early days of them looking for smart people ready to go. I don't remember it being much more than a chat about why I was interested and me asking them a lot of questions about what they were doing. It's much more systematic now.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services in November 2008.

    Interview Details

    I first, filled out an online application and once that was completed a HR rep contacted me. The HR reps checked my transcript and then completed a background check. The HR rep met with me and then figured out what I was looking for, to see if it was available. Once they found out what I was looking for, they got in contact with the schools. The principal called me to see when I could come in for an interview. I went in for interview and then I received a phone call from HR when they told me that they wanted to offer the job to me. I accepted.

    Had two phone interviews with several different staff persons from Regional Offices and one final interview in person.

    Interview Details

    I liked the place very cutting edge and forward thinking . There was a lot of talk about empowerment and working in teams to discuss the overall strategy and direction for the department. The management structure is flat and high technology driven with a strong eye on Return On Investment and business intelligence.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services in May 2009.

    Interview Details

    Job was made to sound much less hassle than it has turned out to be. It was evident that they were interested in filling the position quickly. My suspicion that the previous person had quit suddenly was verified by several people after I started the job.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    There was no negotiation. I was made an offer that was much less than my last position. I'm sure the state of the economy at the time fueled their "Take it or leave it" attitude.
