    I have been working at Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco full-time


    Best reason to work here are the people who are friendly, professional, and work hard but aim for work/life balance, the opportunity to learn and grow within the Bank and the Federal Reserve System, and the excellent benefits offered.


    Some downsides are slow to adapt to changes but this area is improving.

    Advice to Management

    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco (San Francisco, CA) in August 2015.


    Was called for a phone interview by the hiring manager. Fairly straightforward, but I did not feel that the position he described had been accurately depicted in the job posting. The position being interviewed for was significantly more technical, while the position as advertised was more supervisory and administrative.
