    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Federal Reserve Board (Washington, DC).

    Interview

    I was sent an email regarding an auditor opportunity that matched my profile asking to do a phone interview the next week. A couple hours after the interview, I was invited to come down the next week to DC for an in-person interview. The in-person interview consisted of a 3 person panel interview. The entire process was quick. Took about two weeks.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Federal Reserve Board (Washington, DC).

    Interview

    I applied via the online career page. I was contacted shortly after and did a phone screen with the recruiter. I then had a 30min phone screen with some of the office managers. After a week or so, I was called back to do an in-person interview which took almost 2 hours. After that, I was asked to come back again to meet the Director. I had an offer a week or so later.

    Law Enforcement Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Federal Reserve Board (Philadelphia, PA) in March 2011.

    Interview

    Very informal. I was contacted by the staffing division after applying on line 3 months prior and asked was I still interested. I was then brought in to interview with one staffing assistant. She basically went over my resume and asked me questions directly related to the information I supplied. She questioned my salary demands and agreed with me but also stated that she wouldn't have final say. She then escorted me to the Law Enforcement Unit where I was interviewed by a ranking officer. He basically filled me in on the job duties and informed me that someone would contact me with an offer soon. A few days later, I received an offer. It was not what I asked for, but wasn't far off. I accepted.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Federal Reserve Board (Washington, DC).

    Interview

    Chaotic--HR rep on vacation, got an assistant or intern. I had to remind her of necessary steps and advocate to get the schedule I needed. Then had difficulty getting through security due to snafu on her end.

    Interview Questions

    • Just like the federal job process. Very focused on how my experiences would tie in to their department. Scored on each question. I'd say prep based on online application questions and with guidance on federal interview process.   Answer Question
