Average Interview

Application

I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at US Census Bureau (New York, NY) in April 2010.

Interview

I applied to an internal job posting since I was already working there. Due to the nature of the decennial census operation, once you get your foot in the door there are many opportunities that present themselves. I had a single interview with 3 people. I met the technical requirements for the job and had the people skills they were looking for.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at US Census Bureau (Suitland, MD) in July 2008.

    Interview

    Pretty simple, started with a simple phone interview where the manager described the work Census does and what my specific role would be. Didn't take long, maybe 45 mins. He was friendly and we seemed to hit it off.

    Negotiation

    Govt pretty much sets your pay based on education and work experience, you don't have much room for negotiation.
