I applied online and the process took 8 months - interviewed at US Department of State.
Interview Details – The hiring process is long and tedious. The interview process takes an entire day, which includes a considerable of waiting. You are interviewed by two or three people who tell you that they have to remain "stone-faced", so as not to display a personal interest in you.
Interview Question – How have you persuaded a group of people, many of whom you do not know, to change their current mindset to one that is similar to yours? Answer Question
Negotiation Details – There is no salary negotiation. You are paid according to the Foreign Service pay scale. Benefits and most importantly, the start date, is not negotiable, and nor are they even mentioned.
Your feedback has been sent to the team and we'll look into it.
The difficulty rating is the average interview difficulty rating across all interview candidates.
Your response will be removed from the review – this cannot be undone.
No thanks –
