    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia (Philadelphia, PA) in March 2016.

    Interview

    I first interviewed with HR and was asked many situational questions. They were fairly easy, just be sure to practice your answers. The HR lady was not intimidating either, she made it feel like I was already a part of the bank. Next after this was finish, I was sent to a panel interview with the head of the department and three of is workers (so four people total in the panel). They all had copies of my resume and asked me to explain it n depth and asked more about my skills.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia (Philadelphia, PA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Screen by headhunter, telephone interview with FRB, then in-person review with hiring manager and hiring team. The headhunter was not good with follow-up and keeping me posted on progress. The hiring manager was old-school traditional project management, the environment seemed very bureaucratic. Team was nice enough, I didn't take the job since it required a longer commitment than I was willing to make there with that technology.

    Initial contact with HR though phone and email. Then, there was a phone interview with Hiring Managers.

After that hour, you meet with the Hiring Managers that you spoke with over the phone and they ask mostly behavioral questions.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia (Philadelphia, PA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Relatively straight forward interview process. I applied online and was called by a recruiter to set up an interview. The interview was two parts, one in HR one with the department I was applying to. The HR interview was fairly quick, one-on-one with general resume questions and a handful of behavioral questions. The interview in the Financial Institution Structure business unit was with three people, and was a longer interview with more detail about the position, primarily behavioral questions again. Really friendly atmosphere with some laughing and light conversation at the start and end of the interview.
