    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 8+ months. I interviewed at US Department of Veterans Affairs (East Orange, NJ) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Multiple director/manager in the interview, asked very personal questions with regards to why I never left current job, felt attacked, they did not appreciate or find it professional I had multiple questions for them, very difficult to schedule interview, not understanding of current difficulty requesting time off. Noted that current employees in department did not smile, greet or talk to me, did not seem to have good relationship with director. Was required to submit my current paycheck as verification of current salary that was submitted in May. When submitting paycheck I had blacked out my vacation/sick time as well as 401k deduction and insurance fees, HR demanded I send a new copy. Again completed in May I had called and emailed HR for reasoning of seeing all details of my paycheck. No response, it is now August. In the beginning of this process my offer letter stated the applicant or VA could formally with written letter withdraw offer, it is now August and no contact, 8 months later.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 9+ months. I interviewed at US Department of Veterans Affairs (Brooklyn, NY) in July 2013.

    Interview

    The Interview is you and three people who have access to your FBI background check. To show how powerful they are they make snide remarks. If you served with distinction in the US Military they ask," Did you ever Murder Anyone?" You come to the immediate conclusion,"Why am I doing this? These guys are total losers".

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at US Department of Veterans Affairs (Calverton, NY) in May 2012.

    Interview

    It took one month before I was interviewed & 2 months before I was hired. Be very careful whom you write in as a reference as the VA WILL call them!!! Make sure that you receive permission from your references first before noting them down. Also, regardless of what job you are interviewing for, dress conservatively as it leaves them with a better impression of you than if you were to appear in jeans.
