    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Federal Bureau of Prisons.

    Interview

    You take a culture fit assessment test, then a panel interview. Its logic and reasoning as well as a culture fit assessment test. A tip to pass is always go for the "text book" answer. The panel is straight forward situational questions, #what would you do if" type of questions.

    Interview Questions

    • Basic "what would you do if" questions. Nothing to hard.   Answer Question
