I worked at Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland full-time (More than 5 years)
Excellent pay and benefits. Great management team.
There weren't any cons at the Federal Reserve Bank.
Advice to Management
Keep up the good work!
I applied online. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland (Cleveland, OH) in February 2008.
Took a very long time from application to initial call back- several months. Interview process is about 5 stages, including 3 oral interviews with differing levels of management, written testing, and physical fitness testing. You can expect 2-3 weeks in between stages, and they eliminate candidates at every stage. If you manage to pass the lengthy interview ordeal, you can look forward to a job offer conditional on you passing another 8 weeks of training. It was about 8 months from my initial application, to first day actually on the job.
There is no negotiation. Accept the offer, or decline the position.
