    timeline tool is based on a generic process model for conducting efficient, high-quality hiring. Your agency may have more, fewer, or a different order of steps. However, OPM's model will help you identify similar steps in your process and diagnose areas of greatest need for improvement.
    Here is how the tool works:
    First, you'll explore each step in the OPM hiring process model and the recommended days to complete each step.
    Second, you'll enter the number of days your agency actually takes to complete each step. As you progress, you'll learn which steps may be the highest priorities for your agency to adjust.
    Third, you'll learn which of your steps deviate the most from the OPM model.

    Interview

    Was introduced and chatted briefly with the Manager/hiring official, then had a 4 person (!!!) panel interview with other staff. They were all very friendly yet professional and each took a turn asking a few questions, probably about 10 total. The questions were all behavioral in nature, for example, name a time when you dealt with a stressful situation, what was it and how did you respond?

    Internship Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at FAA.

    Interview

    Very difficult. You go through a series of 3 interviews. It's almost like its for a real job, but it's only temporary. It's also a panel interview so it can be very intimidating. Since it's a government job, I can understand why they took this approach.

    Airport Dispatcher Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tampa, FL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at FAA (Tampa, FL) in October 2011.

    Interview

    I applied online through Tampa, FL civil service. Was asked to come in to do typing and skills test within 2 weeks. Upon arrival, after paying $7.00 to park in downtown Tampa, FL the place was flooded with people applying for the same job 1 week before the deadline. Typing was easy, just type the addresses correctly with good speed. Skills test was average, mostly logical questions that pertain to job. Study guide is online at the civil service website. You will know before you leave if you will pass the test. I recieved an email stating I was in the ranking for the job and the FAA and not Tampa Civil Service would contact me if they wanted to setup an interview. No call, or follow up after numerous attempts to contact everyone about status.... (this seemed to be the industry)
