    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Federal Reserve Board.

    Interview

    Applied online and was contacted by an HR manager to schedule phone call with an Economist. Phone call lasted around 30 minutes including both personal questions and monetary policy specific questions. More a conversation though rather than an interrogation.

    Interview

    I applied online. After a few weeks, I was contacted back, and two phone interviews with different research teams were scheduled. Both interviews were pretty relaxed; they asked behavioral questions, and at the end, I had time to ask questions.

    Research Assistant Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Federal Reserve Board (Washington, DC) in October 2017.

    Interview

    There is a fall and spring round of applications, and the processes for the two are different. I was hired in the fall round. I submitted an application and was called and offered an interview about two weeks after the applications were due. They flew me down to DC where I had two interviews each with two people. In between I had a meeting with current RAs who were really nice. The interviews were fairly relaxed, mostly they really wanted to understand my research experience. I didn't have any prior connections to or contacts at the fed before applying, and there was only one interview.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Federal Reserve Board (Washington, DC) in October 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online. They contacted me after a couple weeks to request an interview. No phone interview, which I thought was curious.

    The interview itself was meeting with someone from HR to discuss the job, benefits, etc.. This was followed by 3 interviews, each with 2 economists from different sections. The questions were not different from a typical interview, though certainly more focused toward research and coursework. They're most interested in research experience, coding experience, and economic/math knowledge, with most of the focus on the first two.

    Lunch was with 3 current RAs, who were able to answer questions and give an idea of the day-to-day of RAs.
