    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at US Bureau of Land Management (Las Vegas, NV) in October 2017.

    Interview

    Received an email to interview more than 4 months after completing application. Had a phone interview with the Director of Executive Recruitment. Interview was interesting to say the least and did not expect to move forward. One week later received notification that I was being moved forward. Met again with the Director of Executive Recruitment and then had a panel interview with 3 recruiters. Very conservative and traditional interview with a standard set of questions and little to no interaction from the panel.

    Planning and Environmental Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Anchorage, AK
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at US Bureau of Land Management (Anchorage, AK) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Applied 4/26, closed 4/28, usajobs status updated to "referred" 6/27, supervisor called 7/8 requesting an interview the next week. Conference call with 3 employees: supervisor, project manager, and a planner from Fairbanks. The three took turns asking 6 questions, and gave 45 minutes to conduct the interview (of which we took 30).

    Called four weeks later to inquire about the position; was informed they withdrew it two weeks prior due to budgetary constraints. USAJOBS status are very slow to update, most of the time you have to call to get an update on the position.

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at US Bureau of Land Management (Oklahoma City, OK) in July 2016.

    Interview

    First I went through the application process on usajobs.gov which was very time consuming. A couple of months after that I received a email that said that I was chosen for an interview. Prior to the interview I was sent a study guide of a math assessment and a video. The interview consisted of a handful of questions and was conducted over the phone. About a week after the phone interview I received another email that gave me a link to take the math assessment. I had a week to take the assessment and it covered 16 different questions that were on the study guide. This is as far as I have got so far so I do not have any more insight.

    Interview Questions

    • I cannot remember all of the questions that I was asked but I will do my best. I was asked what my short and long term goals were. I was asked how I handled managing a lot of different task at the same time. Other than that I cannot remember. They were all pretty basic and easy to answer though. The interviewer was really nice and easy to talk to. I asked a lot of questions and he was able to give me a lot of insight into the company.   Answer Question

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at US Bureau of Land Management (Denver, CO) in May 2016.

    Interview

    First round was two 15 minute telephone interviews with two different teams. These teams then determine which applicants to continue through the process. The applicant is then sent a link to take a math test. Must pass the math test with a 70% or higher score. Then the applicant's name is being sent to the hiring official of the top 3 preferred locations that had previously been selected. Each of the 15 minute interviews teams asked 5-6 questions. I have only been through the mast test portion of the process so cannot explain beyond this. Had to select whether I got an offer or not, and selected no at this point, because I haven't and haven't gotten to that point in the interview process yet.
