    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission in March 2017.

    Interview

    Very straightforward, reached out to supervisor with cover letter and she followed up with a phone call and we set up a phone interview. There were no tricks to the process and overall I was impressed with the organization. Did not end up accepting the offer only due to the timing of the internship.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission in March 2014.

    Interview

    Phone interview with a panel. Each person asked a couple of questions. They did have follow up questions to some of my answers which I felt was good because they were actually listening to my answers. I am not fond of phone interviews because I would rather look the people in the eye when I am speaking.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (Minneapolis, MN) in February 2011.

    Interview

    EEOC requires written answers to an extensive list of questions from which they select interviewees. Higher classified positions require more direct skills and experiences. Actual interviews are held by Supervisor and Area Manager are not difficult but presentation and articulation of skills and experiences needs to be clear, concise, and coherent.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (Memphis, TN) in September 2009.

    Interview

    Received call from deputy director. Interviewed with both deputy director and director for approximately one hour. The panel interview focused heavily on behavioral questions. The work culture appeared very relaxed and layed back. The incumbent handled a large caseload so several interview questions regarding organizational and time management skills. Sounded like there was a lot of travel, greater than 50% expected.
