I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at US Department of Veterans Affairs in August 2008.

Interview Details – Interviewed with a panel of three managers. The interview was very relaxed. It was over the phone as I lived across the country at the time. I prepared for the interview by writing out potential questions and answers, which really helped.
