    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at US Department of Defense in May 2009.

    Interview Details

    There was a group of 12 candidates for two positions. We were all kept waiting together in a small-ish room. Groups of four at a time were brought in and we were all asked the same questions. Then we were grouped with different people and asked some of the same questions and some new ones. Finally, we were brought in with a new group of four and each of us asked different questions except for the last one which was, "Why are you better than the other people interviewing?"

    Reasons for Declining

    Spending time in the Washington DC area validated why I left to begin with -- traffic was horrendous and I don't want to spend hours on the road every day on top of my time at work. The process itself reflected a competitive, cut-throat climate at that agency.
