    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at US Department of Homeland Security (Albany, NY) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I was offered the interview within 5 days of taking the computer based test. They offered me 3 dates but I could only make 1. Unfortunately they didn't confirm the interview with me until a day and half before.(around 7pm monday and my interview was Wednesday at 12) The process was easy, they say don't bring your phone but you should because they'll just put it in a bag. The interview was typical like that of an everyday job, asked about challenges etc nothing you can't answer on the spot. Especially since you have no idea what the questions are and Legally I can't tell you.
