    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at FDIC (Arlington, VA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    From the time you apply for a position and to the time when you hear back from the HR (assuming you passed the first screening process and your application got referred to the hiring individual), expect about 3 to 6 months to pass. Once you're over that hurdle, next comes the interview and if you pass the interview, which is pretty easy, then wait another 3 months.
