Interview

The interview process consisted of a screening interview that was 30 minutes followed by a second panel interview with four individuals. The interviewers were kind and thoughtful. I found the questions to be straightforward and mostly focused on my relevant experience and what qualities or skills make me a good candidate.

I applied online. The process took 3 months. I interviewed at US Department of Health and Human Services

Interview

I had heard that the federal hiring process could be long, but this is ridiculous. I interviewed for more than one position. One of the interviews that seemed to go extraordinarily well ended with zero communication about a hiring decision (6 months later and still nothing). Another position I hired for did move forward, but it's taken forever to finalize. If this is how this agency does business, I recommend job candidates look elsewhere, unless they have all the time in the world to waste on this messy and thoroughly disorganized process. The hiring process has taken 8 months (so far!) with no end in sight.
