I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Social Security Administration in September 2012.
Interview Details –
I already worked for the agency when I applied for this job as a promotion. Thus, I only had a telephone interview. The process still took a long time because the hiring process at this agency is extremely slow.
Not that I wanted the interview to be excruciatingly hard, but I felt that the interview was too short for them to have a good sense of who I was. I more felt like they just asked a list of questions without really paying attention to my answers.
Interview Question – Can I compute a "WEP PIA" by hand? - This was most unexpected as I was not interviewing for a T2 job; I was interviewing for a T16 job even though I can definitely do T2 comps by hand! Answer Question
Negotiation Details – You are not able to negotiate. The salary is set by Congress and you know what it is even prior to applying.
I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Social Security Administration in May 2012.
Interview Details – The interview was long and lengthy. I had to interview on the phone 2 times before being able to interview in front of a group setting. My veteran status put me on top of the list but there was a GPA requirement of 3.5/ which made me not eligible..
