    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at US Department of Health and Human Services (Washington, DC) in September 2015.

    Interview

    I met with my then soon-to-be supervisor and he asked me some questions regarding the position and right off the bat I knew I got the job. It was just him and I in a conference room and it was very easy and not intimidating at all.

    Interview was very intense. It was panel style. They allow you to follow along with a list of questions you are provided with. The questions were behavior based. I received an email stating I passed the interview portion. They asked for a copy of my social security card and driver license. I have not heard anything back yet

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at US Department of Health and Human Services in November 2014.

    Interview

    Very comparable to most other jobs. It is a process they use on a regular basis because of the high volume of turnover. It is somewhat effective, but has its flaws like most.

    Income Maintenane Technician Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at US Department of Health and Human Services (Colorado Springs, CO) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Panel interview. Before going into the interview you have to answer an essay question. After speaking with other new hires all of our questions were slightly different, but more or less the same. Job description provided by supervisors are inadequate at best. If you are on Unemployment I suggest not looking applying for the position as you will be sadly disappointed. If you are close to your benefits running out then apply because you just may be hired with the extreme turnover rate that they don't tell you about, of course.

    Disability Claims Adjudicator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Stone Mountain, GA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at US Department of Health and Human Services (Stone Mountain, GA) in June 2014.

    Interview

    The interviewing process was fairly easy. They make you feel quite comfortable and ask the typical behavioral type questions. They basically want to know how well you get along with people, how you prioritize your work and how you deal with conflict. Now I know why they ask the conflict questions, it's not about the people you work. It's the people you work for.
