    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Consumer Financial Protection Bureau in December 2015.

    Interview

    Multi-step process consisting of an initial application, then a written assessment, and finally phone/Skype interviews. I had one phone interview and one Skype interview, both of which were case-based. The written assessment was quite straightforward, though it's important to keep track of time as you're going through it. I was asked no fit/behavioral questions in the phone/Skype interviews.

    Interview Questions

    • All the questions I was asked were case-based—things like, "Walk me through the graph on page X", "What do you think this term might mean?" or "What are some solutions you can come up with to help improve X problem?"   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.

    Interview

    I had three interviews, an hour each, over the phone. Two involved case studies, and one was a "fit interview." I felt that the during the fit interview, the program manager was quite defensive about the CFPB not being a private company. The case studies involved quite a bit of mental math.

    However, the managers of the DFAs have changed, and there is probably quite a different interview system now.
