    Interview Details

    Originally applied for an office which had already filled all of its summer positions. My application was passed on to another office. They reached out to me. Went in for an hour long interview. Asked me to walk them through the macroeconomic situation facing a country of my choice. Then asked some technical questions and why I wanted to intern there.

    Assistant National Bank Examiner Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    Applied online for the position-took some time, but simple enough to follow. Application was done through USAJOBS.gov. Was then prompted by email to schedule a test at a testing site. The first part was a 75 multiple choice question exam on basic accounting/finance principles. If you pass that, you move onto a written exam. The multiple choice exam was not difficult, but if you have never taken an accounting course or much of finance (like me), you will definitely need to study the concepts that they give you in the topic list.

    Interview Questions
    • For the multiple choice test, make sure you know formulas and how to solve basic things on an income/balance statement. There is math involved.   Answer Question

    Office of Financial Stability Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Washington, DC
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at US Department of Treasury in April 2010.

    Interview Details

    I sent in an application in late March/early April. I was then contacted by phone in late April/early May. The phone interview was very straight forward. Just questions about my the experience I had listed on my resume and why I was interested in working for the Treasury. The interviewer (who later became my boss), then told me about what to expect while interning. The internships can easily become jobs. I had a coworker who had just graduated from college and by the end of the summer she was offered a fulltime job.

    Like other government agencies, you get health benefits if you work there full time. As an intern, your transportation costs are covered. The start and end dates of your internship are also pretty flexible.

    TARP Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Washington, DC
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at US Department of Treasury in March 2010.

    Interview Details

    Treasury's TARP program is really sloppy in conducting its interviews. I heard nothing about the status of my application for 2 1/2 months, then suddenly got a call to come in for a panel interview. I aced it, and the next thing I knew, my references (obligatory) were being checked without the courtesy of a heads-up. I received a call-back, performed well, followed up with thank you's and other efforts with no responses. Finally their HR department answered my questions and told me the position had been closed without hiring anyone. I spent hundreds of dollars in travel costs - for nothing and didn't receive the courtesy of responses. One interviewer who took me back to his office for another hour conversation claimed he didn't even remember meeting me!
