Tax Examining Technician Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Philadelphia, PA
No Offer
Neutral Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at IRS (Philadelphia, PA).

Interview

Panel interview with 3 people. They have a set of questions (about 8 I think) that they ask every candidate. Some of the questions were expected- what would you do if a customer was angry etc. Some were a bit vague, I don't remember the specific question but I remember thinking that it was very vague and I wasn't sure what answer they were looking for. The 3 people on the panel were unfriendly and really didn't make you feel like they were listening/cared/wanted to be there.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at IRS (Cincinnati, OH).

    Interview

    The process is long and cumbersome through the internet. Feedback is good. They like resume and transcripts. A background investigation is done after you are hired. Sometimes no interview or one over the phone. Best employer HR for not getting caught up in phoney interview expectations. The color of your resume, suit you are wearing or staying up the night before practicing what HR people like to hear is joyfully not an issue.

    Interview Questions

    • They want very much detail that sometimes is very time consuming to look back and find. If you combine employment with company that changed it's name 3 times the background investigation will wonder why you did not list each individually. For years you are out of work they want exact dates.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    No negotiation. They go by opm wage tables.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at IRS in December 2012.

    Interview

    No interview. Based on answers to online questions and resume. Essentially, you need to answer that you are as flexible as possible -- what location, what shift (day, night or whatever the choices are. Apply for Seasonal positions if you can afford to do so. Often seasonal jobs get extended all year. Then just try to get good at the job. Does not take much to stand out. Then, apply to be an instructor in your department in advance of the next training class. That is a big help in moving forward.

    Interview Questions

    • No questions. Totally based on online question answers which are basically generic about your skills.   1 Answer
