    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at US Department of Veterans Affairs.

    Very formal. Several people interviewed me and I had to answer a series of standardized questions. Some were very general and didn't pertain to my actual role. Other questions were directly related. I think that they ask all NPs these questions.
