    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Veterans Benefits Administration (Seattle, WA) in January 2015.

    Interview

    There were 2 supervisors who asked 4 multi-part questions that were behavioral based questions. The two supervisors were respectful and gave a good description of the position and how the interview process works. The explained that they would be writing comments as I answered questions so they apologized in advance if they did not make consistent eye contact. The overall process was very relaxed and comfortable.

    At the end of the interview, I was instructed to complete a 45 minute question prompt that would be emailed to me. As soon as I opened that email, the timer would start for the assessment. It is important to review the attachment and ensure it is filled out properly.

    The only complaint I would have is the lack of direction of where I was actually suppose to go. There were no signs and all the doors required key cards or codes to enter them. I had to ask a staff member for assistance on where I had to be and they escorted me to the front desk.
