U.S. General Services Administration

Where do you see yourself in five years from now? what do you know about GSA? why did you choose GSA? what is something you feel proud of? (which is very general and did not specify if it was professional or personal). Why do you want to be in a criminal investigative field/position? What are your strengths/weaknesses? What is your biggest failure? And other typical interviewing questions/scenarios just to make sure you can communicate effectively and think in a logical manner. The questions did not stop coming. This felt more like an interrogation rather than an interview.
