    Difficult Interview


    I applied through college or university. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at IRS (Milwaukee, WI).


    I applied as a response to a flyer I saw at my University. I emailed the Rep and got a response back. I was instructed to take an online screening questionnaire that took forever and a day to complete. After that I was requested to come in for an interview with 3 people-2 in person and one on the phone. I thought the interview was okay but the questions didn't seem to match the position they were looking to fill. For example, I was applying for a student intern position but they were asking me questions that I only would have known if I had worked in tax before. This was the one time that I didn't mind behavioral questions because at least those make sense. Overall, they seemed to be nice people. I also had to complete a 30 minute timed essay.
