    Easy Interview

    Interview

    Process wasn't too bad. A total of two phone calls where I was asked questions about my resume/experience and then some behavioral questions. Never had to go on-site, just over the phone. They let me know a few weeks later via email.

    Interview

    Initial telephone screen with recruiter, then phone interview with hiring manager the following week, then about 3 weeks later they flew me out for a series of in-person interviews. Questions were mostly personality-based - I had prepared for them to ask some statistics questions at the in-person interview but they never did. I talked with really pleasant, congenial folks.

    Senior Economist Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond (Charlotte, NC) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Talk on the phone with HR, Hiring Manager and members of QSR. Present research and interview with HR, Hiring Manager and members of QSR HR appears to be extremely important in this process, and even though the hiring manager, an AVP Economist stresses the research aspect, it appears that HR's view of whether or not one would "fit" as an examiner is far more important.

    Interview Questions

    • Interview questions were random and not clearly related to one's area of specialization. My view is that the requirement to present academic research as one would with a real academic job is really a marketing tool because there were almost no questions related to my research, and the person who asked one question about it did not seem to understand my simple answer (I know it was clear as I have given many presentations and received feedback on them).   1 Answer

    The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond (Richmond, VA).

    Interview

    Had a phone screen with the recruiter who first asked about my interests and what other opportunities I was exploring. Then I had a phone screen with the VP of the department. Very monotone, did not seem excited to be interviewing at all. Asked a lot of general questions, and didn't really facilitate conversation.
