    Field Investigator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 3 months - interviewed at KeyPoint Government Solutions.

    Interview Details

    The initial phone interview is okay however the information given by the recruiter is false. Salary statements are made and you are told there is no negotiating (reality is there is and you find out who was paid more for same job). Radius of work location false, TDY policy false, metrics for making more money false, skewed or just omitted. Not told there are no cost of living or merit increases so you can work there 10 yrs and make same wage hourly.

    Interview Questions

    I interviewed online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at KeyPoint Government Solutions.

    Interview Details

    The interview and hiring process was easy. The interview entailed two telephone conferences, personality assessment and typing test. About three weeks total. Once offered the job it was nearly 11 months before I was contacted to begin training. The government clearance does take some time to get complete so be prepared.

    Workload Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Loveland, CO
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Loveland, CO
    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at KeyPoint Government Solutions in February 2012.

    Interview Details

    I know that the interview process has now changed quite substantially in three years. However, when I was there, I was an internal transfer from Document Control to Workload Coordinator. There was only one interview, in person, with the then deputy director of the the program and a representative from HR. They asked me questions in tandem for about forty five minutes. These included your "normal" questions, such as "Describe a time you brought more efficiency into your job," and "How do you deal with stress." There were very few job specific questions. I do know, however, that the hiring process and questions are much more difficult now.

    Contract Investigator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at KeyPoint Government Solutions.

    Interview Details

    I applied online after I received an employee referral. I had a phone interview followed by two video interviews.

    After receiving an offer contingent on having good background , I had to go through a full background investigation, FBI fingerprinting, etc. From when the investigation started to when I found out that everything cleared, that process took three months. This will not necessarily be the same for everyone.

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 5 days - interviewed at KeyPoint Government Solutions.

    Interview Details

    Detailed interview process. A phone interview, then a SKYPE interview then an online test. The interview process was a good one. I thought it was great that they did Skype interviews to see the potential future investigator up close.

    Negotiation Details
    Simple. They couldn't pay what I wanted. We discussed what they were offering. I was interested in the type of work they do and we agreed on their offer.

    Background Investigator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 6 months - interviewed at KeyPoint Government Solutions.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process was pretty straightforward. You can apply directly via the company's website. The application takes a little while but isn't too painful. I was contacted via phone and email and initially had a phone interview and then an interview via Skype. I was offered the position shortly after the Skype interview but then had to wait several months for my background check to be completed. After that you attend training at the company's training facility in Loveland, CO for a few weeks and are then assigned to a seasoned investigator in your area for on-the-job training.
