    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond (Richmond, VA).

    First stage phone interview: pleasant, efficient, informational. The questions were not quite behavioral and not quite technical; more so an informational interview to see where in the niches of the IT department would work for you.

    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

    Average Interview

    Application

    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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond (Richmond, VA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online via the Federal Reserve website. After a follow-up email, I was contacted to set up a phone interview with one of the Regional Economists and their assistant. The phone interview was an exploratory one and all the typical questions were asked. They asked about my internship experience, about my classes, and what my career goals were. I was called afterwards and told that I would be flown down for an in-person interview. After a week with no further contact, I reached back out and told there was a mix-up and that they went ahead with another candidate.

    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.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond (Richmond, VA) in March 2015.

    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.
