    General Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Winchester, VA

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at US Army Corps of Engineers (Winchester, VA) in December 2018.

    Interview

    I applied for a direct hire authority position on USAJobs and was scheduled for interview 1-2 weeks later. About a month later I got an unofficial offer pending approval for a security clearance. About a month after that I was given a firm offer. The whole process was as streamlined as it could be for a federal position. The interview was a casual 30 minute phone interview with very basic interview questions. It was more of a casual conversation than an interview. Time was left at the end for me to ask my own questions about the position. The longest part of the process was waiting on getting approved for security clearance so I could begin work. The hiring manager also maintained communication throughout the whole process and was very helpful.
