    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Social Security Administration (Baltimore, MD) in April 2016.

    Interview

    There were three other candidates along with myself. We had an overview of the position, salary, benefits and training where we were allowed to ask question. Then we met with a panel of two and they asked us a series of questions. They left us a training excerpt to evaluate and came back and asked questions. I met with a woman who analyzed my Spanish speaking abilities. I was then fingerprinted. Everyone was very friendly. It took a little over three hours.
