    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at IRS in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    The government interview process is pretty standardized. You submit your application generally through USAJobs for most agencies. Opm will screen the applications and send the best qualified to the agency. From there hiring managers will screen out more applicants and narrow the field further and select candidates for interviews. The interviews are standardized and conducted in form of a panel meaning you'll be in a room with 3 or more panelists asking questions. Everyone is asked the same set of questions. Some agencies may do this over the phone others may ask you to come in.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at IRS in January 2012.

    Interview Details

    Applied through USAJOBS about 3 months before actually getting an interview. USAJOBS kept me updated of the status of my application, and the HR people were not helpful at all - just not responsive. Eventually I got a status update that my application was being referred to a hiring official, and within a few weeks, they called me for an interview.
