    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 8+ months. I interviewed at US Agency for International Development (Buford, WY) in April 2012.

    Interview

    Went in, talked to some people. They asked questions and I answered.A person who either did not take their medication or took some bad drugs, or both, was bouncing from emotion to emotion like somebody was hitting a change emotion button once every 20 odd seconds or so. They would be laughing one second, crying a bit later, looking around confused next, then suddenly be suspicious of everybody around them for whatever reason.
