Average Interview
Application

I applied online. The process took 7 months. I interviewed at Fairfax County Park Authority (Fairfax, VA) in Feb 2015

Interview

It was a panel interview with three on the panel. Very rarely do the interviewers look up at you because they are taking notes the whole time. It is best to answer the questions thoroughly and be somewhat longwinded because the more you speak the better it is. Sometimes they will call you back for a second interview if they have multiple finalist. The process after this can take any where from one month to nine months.
