  1. FEMA Emergency Management Specialist (Recovery) Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Harrisburg, PA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview
    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 months. I interviewed at FEMA (Harrisburg, PA) in Jun 2021

    Interview

    I applied via USAJobs. I received an email three or so weeks after the application, notifying me that my resume had been passed on to the hiring manager. I received a phone call about a week later to schedule an interview, which was held virtually over Zoom. It was a panel interview, involving 8 pre-scripted questions.
    Interview

    Q: Tell us about yourself, and what qualities make you suitable for this position. Q: Tell us about some software you have used for emergency management applications. Q: What is the most rewarding professional experience you have had in the last two years, and why? Q: Tell us about a time you used data to tell a story.
