I applied in person,however, applications are taken on line only.

Interview Question – There was a group interview....everyone sitting around a large conference table. One by one they went around and you had to introduce yourself, say a little something about yourself, and also state why YOU would be the best person for this job.

The interview I went through had many situational and behavioral questions, but not many technical ones as I was being interviewed by directors of several different departments.
Interview Question – I did not receive any technical questions, but they asked questions about different situations (i.e. bad team/group member, financial/excel analysis, etc). Answer Question

Interview Details –
It's a fairly involved process. Phone screen first, then F2F interviews with the team, and hiring manager. As a union shop, they are required to ask a standard set of questions. It's actually a fairly ineffective interview, as it doesn't get to culture or personality conflicts.
After that, there is a lengthy background check, security clearance, credit check, and a drug screen. It takes a very long time.
Interview Question – They use canned interview questions about experience, and skill familiarity. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – There is basically no negotiation. Everything is pre-defined - salary, vacation, etc.
