    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond (Richmond, VA).

    Interview

    The interview was very relaxed. There were three men sitting around a table, who each belonged to a different section of the position I was interviewing for. I would strongly recommend doing you research on the Fed. Also make sure you get there early and ask questions at the end.

    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

    Applied online and received an email about a phone interview in about two weeks. Had a phone interview with the manager and team member of the department. Asked questions about my myself and coursework. Following the phone interview, received an email within a week about an on-site interview. At the on-site interview, I sat with the manager of the department as well as an HR Rep. Asked questions about my experience and coursework. Very similar to the phone interview. If you have any projects you've completed, print them out and bring them in.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond.

    Interview

    Two phone screens, one of which was a panel screen, and then in-person with numerous panels immediately after each other. You meet with absolutely everyone in the entire legal department, at all levels, from legal assistants to associate counsel and general counsel. The interview is entirely about personality with little substance given about the actual nature of the position. The legal assistants and paralegals will ask you how you will treat them - literally. You will be asked your MBTI type, to describe how your "social energies" are generated in workplace settings, and a range of other odd and intrusive questions about your personality. Make sure you are prepared for numerous cultural fit questions and to project extroversion in personality - they will not hire you if you appear introverted.

    In lieu of direct questions on the substance of your job, you will be expected to lead discussion on the assumed substance of the position you don't even have yet, without much information coming from their end. They will expect technical questions about internal proprietary systems and will rate you negatively for failure to have sufficient questions about the role if you cannot do this.

    You will be lucky if the recruiter actually responds to you about the status of your application for months, but then expects immediate responses if they need something from you. Seriously, I received multiple calls from the recruiter within the same business day after weeks of radio silence. If you have to incur expenses to come to the interview you will not receive a reimbursement for months. My impression was that this office has very specific, stuffy, cultural requirements which they are uncompromising about and very opaque technical expectations that they refuse to discuss with applicants. In addition, the office contacts were extremely discourteous and unhelpful throughout the process.
