    Intake Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Winchester, VA

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at FEMA (Winchester, VA) in September 2013.

    Interview

    truly simple - questions about resume, and question about any criminal history. It was quick and I was sworn in the same day. Yes the job is worth it because at this point you will be helping people who have lost everything including loved ones
