I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at FAA in January 2013.

Interview Details – Panel style interview. Different department managers. Approx 10 questions. Are you a team player? Why do you want to work for the FAA? etc

Interview Question – What did you not like about your previous job?   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – I had a better opportunity in another sunny state on the west coast

Contract Specialist Interview

Contract Specialist
Renton, WA

I applied in-person and the process took 2 months - interviewed at FAA.

Interview Details – Initially, lengthy online application process. Once done though, easy to edit and apply for future jobs. Interview time frame and hiring process is dependent on urgency to fill the position and of course, funding.

Interview Question – Being asked to expand on the definition of being "a team player". I've found the hiring person is looking for specific characteristics and not the canned response of "being able to work well with others, being flexible and adaptable". Person is looking for specific examples describing a situation, what you did in response, and what the outcome of the situation was.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – What were you able to negotiate? What advice would you give others considering an offer?
