Interview

I had an interview over the phone due to my location, interviewer was very nice, and it was your basic interview questions i.e. strengths, weaknesses, talk about yourself, a time when you had to do something without approval etc, etc.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Port Authority of New York and New Jersey (New York, NY) in March 2013.

    Interview

    There are two interviews for the Leadership Fellowship. The first is a typical behavioral one, asking you about challenges you faced, examples of a time you showed leadership, etc. If you are selected for a second interview, you will take part in "Assessment Day," a 4-5 hour process that you go through with a few other candidates. You'll first have a panel interview similar to the first one. You'll then prepare for a scenario in which you'll be given a packet of information that you have to comb through in order to make recommendations to your "bosses," similar to what you might be asked to do at the Port Authority. You then will have do a writing exercise related to the scenario exercise. It is a long and draining experience, but you'll learn how much you really want the position, and get a taste of a day in the life will be like.

    Interview Questions

    • While presenting I was asked to switch gears a little and imagine I was talking to a community board instead, something which I hadn't prepared for.   1 Answer

    Application

    interviewed at Port Authority of New York and New Jersey (New York, NY) in March 2012.

    Interview

    Initial interview is strait forward filled with behavioral questions lasting approximately one hour. The second workshop interview is much more involved. Expect to be dedicate as much as five hours for the process. They do not give much guidelines for what to expect for this. Part one is a meeting with current Leadership Fellow and is conversational. Part two meet with two other higher ranking managers and it more traditional. Part three consists of two exam type questions that you are given an hour to answer with a calculator. Afterwards you are asked to present your findings to the interviewers. Finally a writing sample is taken as well.

    Interview Questions

    • Part three was unexpected and while not unreasonably difficult can present a major issue if one runs out of time.   Answer Question
