Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Consumer Financial Protection Bureau in October 2014.

Interview

I was contacted within a week or two of applying. The first step was a roughly hour long written assessment, which was essentially a case study of a financial market. While most of the questions could be answered qualitatively I think they're looking for you to use quantitative methods, e.g., run regressions. It was all done over email. After that came a series of three phone/Skype interviews which were a mix of behavioral and technical questions. I wasn't terribly impressed with the interview process. Several of the interviews started late (15+ minutes.) I was also told they would all be Skype intefviews, but some were phone interviews instead.
