    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at US Department of Treasury.

    Interview

    I submitted an application on USA jobs and within two weeks I received an email from a specific department head. They were interested in scheduling an interview for later that week. Flexible on if it was over the phone or in person based on my schedule. The interview itself was with two people, pretty laid back lasted 20 minutes. Asked three questions then talked to me about the internship work and details.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at US Department of Treasury (Washington, DC).

    Interview

    I was interviewed by 4 people at the same time. They were all very nice but seemed cliquey - like I was trying to join a high school club. Since there were 4 people, there were a ton of questions. It was a bit overwhelming and nerve-racking.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at US Department of Treasury (Washington, DC) in June 2015.

    Interview

    The first interview was great, no trick questions although they did have me do a short exercise. The second interview was with the head of the organization and the best way to describe it was weird. I think perhaps she was attempting to trip me up by asking off the wall questions that had no relation to the job.

    Interview Questions

    • In the middle of answering one of her more relevant questions she asked what newspapers I read and why? Another question she interrupted me to ask if how my old job would feel about me leaving.   Answer Question
