Interview Question – How much do you know about our mission? View Answer
Negotiation Details – If applicant is new to the government, more than likely, they will start at the beginning of the pay band. I am told that people can negotiate but I have not experience that as of yet
The process took 6 weeks - interviewed at US Department of Defense in October 2008.
Interview Details – Department of Defense was not a very difficult interview. I have had much more difficult. The basic questions were how do you work with a team? How do you resolve problems etc. The longest part is the background check which took 4 weeks! Typical Government job. Very slow paced at times, but during month end closes it got pretty hectic. The craziness is directly related to the large and cumbersome systems that they have in place. The government is a slow moving organization and it takes an extremely long time for them to get new systems. And by the time its implemented it is already outdated lol!
Negotiation Details – There was no negotation it was way above what I was currently making
