    Disability Examiner Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Woodlawn, MD
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Woodlawn, MD
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Social Security Administration in February 2010.

    Interview Details

    The interview process takes a long time and there are several people involved. Usually, the people involved don't know each other and no one can give you any information about the process- how long it will take, when the job starts, what the job is, etc. They basically just interview you and decide themselves what job to put you in, if they decide to hire you. If you do well in the interview, they invite you back to take a brief math test. After you finish everything, it can take a month or longer before you hear back from them. If they do offer you a job, they may only give you a couple weeks notice before you have to begin a training class. In the interview, they ask general questions for which you have to provide examples from your life illustrating how you have dealt with and overcome different situations or obstacles in the past and they write down everything you say. The overall process seemed to be very disorganized and the communication was horrible. I can't really complain, because I did receive a job offer, which made all the stress of the process worth it in the end

    Interview Questions
    • Tell me everything you know about SSA   View Answer
    • Give me three specific examples from your life of times you had to overcome adversity (addressing who was involved, when and where the events happened, what the exact situation was, how you dealt with it, why you dealt with it the way you did, and what the final result was)   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    There is no negotiation. You may not even know what position you are interviewing for until you get the job (unless you only applied for one position, then it is most likely that one). If they hire you, the salary is what it is and there is no negotiating over that

    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Baltimore, MD
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Baltimore, MD
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6+ monthsinterviewed at Social Security Administration in August 2009.

    Interview Details

    Took several months from application to hiring. Fairly onerous set of questions. Process seemed to be geared toward screening by Personel, who then forwarded only a few prospective candidates for interviews. Interview was informal for me, but other interviews of co-workers involved 2 or more interviewers who asked pointed questions. General approach is 'by the numbers', so one should pay careful attention to the initial questions on the job questionaire (several essay style answers, etc.).

    Interview Questions
    • Interview was very informal and friendly. I was solicited to apply for the position, so the biggest hurdle was getting past the Personell screeners who score the initial questionaire.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    There was no negotiation, rather, simply a request to accept or decline. Very inpersonal.
