    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at APA (Washington, DC) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Brief interview with HR by phone and an in-person interview with he supervisor. Both were very comfortable and conversational. I think I answered most of HR's questions in my responses to their first two questions. The in-person interview followed a standard set of questions.
