You apply on usajobs. When you fill out the grade questionnaire the answers are important. Then you are invited to take a test online. The results of the test and qualifications are scored giving you a ranking. They interview the highest ranking individuals. It took about 6 months to get a job offer.

There isn't much room for negotiating. If you make more currently you should try to bring it up. Most people start with what they are offered. Grade is very important. The grade you start at cannot be changed once you start working.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 12+ monthsinterviewed at IRS in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    It was a group interview, done by a panel of 3 supervisors/group managers. They ask a specific set of questions, some are harder, depending upon the candidate, or who they want to let in or promote. No hiring in the last 3 years, and none on the horizon. It is always hard when you are going up against the considered favorite.
