    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (Washington, DC) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online to take a two part exam. The first part tests your knowledge. If you pass the first part, the second part becomes available and tests your writings skills. After passing that, I was scheduled for a phone interview. After the phone interview, I went to career exploration day, where they had some seminars and I was interviewed by two people at once.

    You apply online and then based on your application they let you know if you are qualified for the next portion of the application. You are required to take a knowledge based test and if you pass that, then a written essay. If you pass both of these, then you have a phone interview. If you pass that, then you are invited to a career exploration day at one of their offices.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (New York, NY) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Applied on school job board. A couple days later scheduled a date to take their qualification exam. The exam was comprised mainly of accounting concepts for the multiple choice section. It also had a writing section where your main purpose is to concisely summarize an outstanding loan to your superiors.

    After passing the exam (both MC and written), a phone interview was scheduled approximately 2 weeks later. The questions asked were your typical behavioral questions. If you do well on the phone screening, you get invited to the OCC career exploration day.

    At the career exploration day, you go through presentations of what it is like to work for the OCC; ask questions, and what not. Then you have a final panel interview, which had similar questions to the phone screening.

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Office of the Comptroller of the Currency in October 2016.

    Interview

    I went to a recruitment presentation at my school. I applied through USAJOBS. Then I took the qualifying tests. The first was an accounting knowledge test which was pretty basic. If you have taken courses in accounting and review your accounting concepts, it shouldn't be difficult. The second part was a writing section. I was given a number of documents concerning a loan and was asked to write a report about the situation. The most difficult part about the writing section is that you only have two hours to read and understand the information. I will be doing a phone interview soon, and hopefully they will ask me to meet for the final interview.
