    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at ORAU in March 2015.

    Interview

    Applied through LinkedIn for a different position, recruiter contacted me asked me to complete video interview and officially apply through the organizations website because she had two days to select a candidate. A few days later, I sent a 'thank you' email and the recruiter informed me that there was another opening in my area (Budgeting position) asked me to once again complete the application and the video interview. About a week later, I received an email from a different recruiter who advised me to contact my references and let them know that they would be contacted very soon. Needless to say that has been weeks ago and they haven't contacted neither myself nor my references. With the time spent applying and interviewing a simple rejection letter would be appreciated.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at ORAU.

    Interview

    The interview process is very simple and it's the same for almost all employees who interview. It consists of one phone interview. The organization does not make an effort to vet people for jobs because everyone is doing contract work. If need be the agency can release the person without much thought at any point.
