    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at US Department of Labor (Washington, DC) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Phone interview with three members of the Office I was applying into. The interviewers were representing two separate divisions. Pretty basic behavioral interview. They asked about my technical skills towards the latter half of the interview. I applied through a recruiter rather than through a formal application so they were not fully clear during the call about what my role would be exactly. Essentially offered me the internship at the end of the call.

    Program Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Washington, DC
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at US Department of Labor (Washington, DC) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Very, very delayed (5 months in total). Only one teleconference interview. The HR department is confused, confusing, and unhelpful. I had concerns regarding health insurance that never got answered, so in order to take the job, I actually went without insurance for 3 weeks. This was very concerning as an employee with a disability, especially because I was hired under Schedule A authority. I would avoid DOL at all costs, unless you have no other employment options.

    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Employee

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at US Department of Labor in March 2015.

    Interview

    One phone interview. I could not come in person so this was the only interview that was needed. It only lasted about half an hour and I got a call the next week saying I got the job. The process after that was inefficient though. After getting an offer, I got another call from DOL asking if I wanted to interview for a position. I told them I had already accepted an offer from them, so I am not sure how well the in house communication is.
