    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    - Contacted by a recruiter after a friend's mother sent her my resume. Recruiter asked if I would be interested in such and such position. I said yes.
    - Set up an interview on-site for a few weeks later. Met a few members of the team I would be working with and the manager, standard questions about background/qualifications, what I look for in a job, what their office is like, mostly just to see if I would be a good fit for the team.
    - Got a call a week and a half later, told to fill out an online application for a different position, was brought in again for an interview more specific to the new position, met another member of the team, answered questions about my research as a grad student.
    - Heard from HR a few weeks later.
