Tax Examining Technician Interview
I applied online. I interviewed at IRS (Cincinnati, OH).
The process is long and cumbersome through the internet. Feedback is good. They like resume and transcripts. A background investigation is done after you are hired. Sometimes no interview or one over the phone. Best employer HR for not getting caught up in phoney interview expectations. The color of your resume, suit you are wearing or staying up the night before practicing what HR people like to hear is joyfully not an issue.
- They want very much detail that sometimes is very time consuming to look back and find. If you combine employment with company that changed it's name 3 times the background investigation will wonder why you did not list each individually. For years you are out of work they want exact dates. 1 Answer
No negotiation. They go by opm wage tables.

I applied online. I interviewed at IRS in December 2012.
No interview. Based on answers to online questions and resume. Essentially, you need to answer that you are as flexible as possible -- what location, what shift (day, night or whatever the choices are. Apply for Seasonal positions if you can afford to do so. Often seasonal jobs get extended all year. Then just try to get good at the job. Does not take much to stand out. Then, apply to be an instructor in your department in advance of the next training class. That is a big help in moving forward.
- No questions. Totally based on online question answers which are basically generic about your skills. 1 Answer

I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at IRS (Austin, TX) in December 2008.
Several hundred canidates for the position were brought into a large room and 5-10 reps came around and sat with each person verifing your work experience and asked a few questions. They had us all fill out a booklet, take a fingerprint then exit the building. Very boring, very long but everyone was very nice.
You were given the ability to chose 3 shifts in preference order, most people were given 1 of there 3 choices. Salary was set by GS scale.
