Application

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

Interview

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

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at US Census Bureau (Stony Brook, NY) in May 2011.

    Interview

    I applied through my school's career center. I scheduled an interview slot with the career center. The interview was the next day. An online application/questionnaire was required and needed to be done before the interview. The questionnaire regarding grade level was confusing. The interview itself was pleasant. It took place inside of the career center. The interviewer was polite and professional. She explained the benefits thoroughly. She asked about my past work experience and the classes I took.
