    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at US Investigations Services (Indianapolis, IN).

    Interview

    The questions listed here by previous reviewers were very helpful and I was able for come up with some great anecdotes because of them. My interviewer seemed impressed I staked out a quiet corner of a hotel lobby before he arrived so we weren't scrambling for a table at a noisy Starbucks somewhere. Also dress conservatively, especially if you are young.... think Fox Mulder type of suits.

    Interview

    It was an ok interview. They asked me why I wanted to be an investigator and work for the company. They explained the goals and objectives of the company and their relationship with the government. I had a lot of questions on the clearance process, but they weren't really able to answer them well.

    Difficult Interview

    I had to answer several experiential and behavioral questions in an essay type format and then I got a telephone interview. After that, I went for an in person interview. Then I got the job. The questions for both the telephone interview and in person interview were very similar in nature.
