    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at FBI.

    Interview Details

    Applied through my school's career website. Everyone gets the same five questions in the interview and there's only one round. Questions are all behavioral, like describe a time you had to work with a team. Last question was to rank yourself on a scale of 1-5 on various things and then they ask you how you would adapt to working at the FBI. If you get an offer you have to go through a lengthy background check that includes filling out lots of forms, a security interview and a polygraph. They will also talk to a bunch of your friends and family members. They never told me what position I was I assigned or my salary until I asked.
