Application

I applied online. I interviewed at IRS (Kansas City, MO) in March 2016.

Good interview process. Short and sweet. Just waited to go through paper work with management, then waited for them to call us back for a job offer. It took them a few weeks to call us back, then we started orientation.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at IRS (Kansas City, MO) in November 2012.

    Interview

    After I applied online I was emailed and told a time and date to get fingerprinted and take a typing test. After going through security you're told to go into a room and await the typing test. While you're waiting for that to begin, people come and get you to get your badge photo taken as well as your fingerprints. Also while you're waiting you get your paperwork checked. The whole process goes much faster if you print out all the required documents from the initial email you get sent. The typing test is mainly 10-key with a little bit of alpha thrown in there. There is a requirement you must meet. I think if you only get 90% accuracy you have to be able to type around 5000wpm. If you're able to type 100% accuracy you have to be able to type around 4500wpm I think. I was told there were a lot of applicants and we couldn't hear back from them for over a month and it would be only by email to grant approval for the background check.
