Easygoing interview! Basically asked simple questions about yourself and personal experience you have had in negotiations from all aspects of life. The interview takes a while to get, and the confirmation takes even longer. Great experience, though!

Difficult Interview
Application

I applied online. I interviewed at United States Federal Government (Honolulu, HI) in Jul 2020

Interview

Due to COVID restrictions, the interview committee interviewed the applicants via phone. The call was hosted by a committee lead and the feel of the call was cold and distant. I was well prepared for the interview but it seemed rushed and the lead was impatient with my responses. The interview was scheduled for an hour but was conducted in 45 minutes with the lead pushing to finish the process. Bottomline the interview bordered on unprofessionalism and it appeared the committee was just going through the motions.

Interview Questions
  • They asked five situation questions that were relevant to experience in the job.
  • Relevant fiscal management scenario question
  • Relevant source management scenario question
  • Relevant supply system scenario question
