    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta.

    Interview Details

    The whole process took a little over 3 months. There was an initial HR telephone screen just talking about work history, and also for HR to talk more about the position and the Fed. Then a 3-hour long interview session. This included an IQ/personality assessment on the computer, and a case study assessment that was more about issue-spotting and writing skills, with an in-person interview with directors afterwards. I thought the computer assessments were a little tough, and were more nerve-wracking than anything, but they weren't hard per se. All of the directors were friendly. Then there was a final interview with higher level officers. I had good communication with the HR representative throughout. The interview process was the most extensive I've ever gone through, but HR was transparent, and everyone was very friendly.
