Application Details

I applied online. The process took 8 months - interviewed at US Census Bureau.

Interview Details

I applied in August. In December, I received a call for an interview. I interview in January. It was a panel interview with 4 managers. They read 10 questions prepared by HR. The questions were mostly behavioral questions ("Tell us about a time in which you had a difficult time with a co-worker'). No questions about technical skills. If you search for "behavioral interview questions", you'll get a good understanding of the questions they asked.

I was hired in March and started in April. So, the process took 8 months from submitting my application to my first day. Yep.

Interview Questions
  • There weren't any difficult or unexpected questions. Two of the questions were so similar that I thought they were asking me the same question; one question was so poorly worded that even the panel was confused.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at US Census Bureau in June 2011.

    Interview Details

    They asked 10 questions, fairly standard. They wanted to know about experience with large data sets, which I didn't have.
