    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at New York City Office of Management and Budget (New York, NY) in September 2016.

    Interview

    How the interview goes, depends on the unit you apply to. The interview is two rounds (multiple days). On the first round, I got interviewed by two people (separately). One was with the Unit Head, and the other with a deputy director. The questions were basic, such as why you're interested with this unit?, what do you know about the unit and OMB?, past experiences, etc. The second person, asked more detailed questions about your past work experiences, and if you're a recent graduate, what types of courses you took (be ready to go into detail).

    I didn't make it to the second round, where you would then interview with a director.

    One tip would be to have questions about the position and unit that you could ask them. That is one thing they kept asking, and could have been helpful.

    I also felt as though, they were looking for someone to work in the long term

    Interview

    Slow interview process, didn't reply to the email inquiries. I heard back from them after 3 months that I have not been selected. Interviewed by couple of different units. I would recommend applying this place as it is one of the most prestigious city government agencies and working here can give you a good start professionally.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at New York City Office of Management and Budget (New York, NY) in July 2015.

    Interview

    There are three rounds of interviews, one with the unit head, and then two separate interviews with senior management. Many of the questions are the same in all three interviews, with perhaps more detail orientated questions being asked in the first of the three. Once you make it to the final round interview, this seemed to consist of very high level questions in order to determine if your interests and personality align with the position and team.

    Interview Questions

    • Many questions centered around conflict resolution and working in high pressure situations when you often must say no to what an agency wants if it is not justified.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at New York City Office of Management and Budget in July 2015.

    Interview

    Sat through 3 interviews in one day; the first with a senior analyst, the second with an assistant analyst, and the third with their supervising analyst. Most questions were behavioral--most were geared towards assessing how you handle conflict and the pressure of deadlines. It's also a good idea to be able to explain what's on your resume.

    Interview Questions

    • Why do you want to work in the public sector?
      Describe a situation in which you encountered a conflict with people you worked with and how you resolved it.
      What are some functions you've worked with in Microsoft Excel?
