    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at FAA (Washington, DC).

    Interview

    Very vague. In fact, I was assigned projects as they became available. However, I soon began to enjoy the diversity of the projects that were assigned to me. I eventually became the project manager over three very important operations. It wasn't until that I realized the importance of the functions of duties that I performed, that made me know just how valuable my skill set had been. With that being said, it was then that I really began to grab the bulls by the horns.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at FAA (Alexandria, VA) in October 2011.

    Interview

    From the time the job closed to interview, it was almost 4 months. Was asked a series of several "what would you do in this situation" questions. They thanked me for my time and asked if I had any questions. Was told that an offer could take just as long as the interview process did and not to give up.

    Computer Specialist Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at FAA (Washington, DC) in July 2009.

    Interview

    Applied for various Computer Specialist and Scientist jobs via ASAP system. Called in for in-person interview; no phone screening. The first date was inconvenient for me; they rescheduled with no complaint. When they asked me for a further delay, I agreed. The interview started promptly and went smoothly. There was a panel of three interviewers from 3 functional areas. Each had a set of questions. Some were about my experiences, some were sort of hypothetical design questions, some were about credentials (e.g in project management). I felt that my resume and KSA responses had distinguished me from the competition, and that I was being judged on more personal issues (how to fit in, etc.). Several questions were about how to handle difficult workplace scenarios. The interviewers were polite and helpful. AT the end, when they asked "Do you have any questions?" they seemed genuinely interested in responding. I was favorably impressed with the professional attitudes displayed.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at FAA (Washington, DC) in May 2009.

    Interview

    Not too stressful. Very low key. Interviewing was more about what the job entails than trying to eliminate me as a candidate. FAA is very political so its more about who you know, than what you know. My masters degree was rendered useless..HA. Oh well.
