    Difficult Interview

    Application

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

    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.

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Federal Reserve Board (Washington, DC) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Applied via email online. Submitted a resume, cover letter, transcript, and application. Got an offer to interview 2-3 weeks after I submitted my application

    Summer Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Washington, DC
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Federal Reserve Board (Washington, DC) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Phone interview, then hired 4 days later. It was very conversational. Two Fed employees spoke a little about their background, the company, and possible projects interns can be exposed to during the internship. Interview was pretty laid back and by far the easiest interview I've done. Make sure you know what they fed does and what a stress test is. Despite not being asked these questions, I still prepared myself to talk about what going on in the economy, interest rate possible hikes, stress tests, and the strength of the dollar. If you are prepared to answer these questions, you will come off as intelligent and a must hire.

    Interview Questions

    • 1. This job requires someone with great organizational skills, do you posses those skills? (Give a situation)

      2. What field do you want to go into after graduation? (Be concise, don't seem like you don't know what you want to do after grad)

      3. What did you like and did not like at your past job? (Relate it to the internship in a way and DO NOT say anything bad about your previous job!)

      4. When can you start?

      5. Are you okay with giving a presentation after your internship concludes? (Say something along the lines of hell yeah but don't sound too excited. Sound confident)

      6. Do you have any questions for us? ( read my answers, they told me I have some really good questions so I guess it'll wok for you!)

      Hope this helps a lot and send a thank you letter the day after! Include something you guys talked about in the interview, don't make it a long letter.   1 Answer

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Federal Reserve Board (Washington, DC) in December 2015.

    Interview

    After applying, took two months to be called for interview. Another month to schedule interview and about 45 to hear back afterwords. Interview was a 5 person panel. Each took turns peppering unrelated questions. A one on one with the hiring manager would have been more effective in getting to know me or any candidate.
