    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas (Dallas, TX) in October 2018.


    I applied online through a recruiting firm, got a call the next day from them and a phone interview was set up with the employer within 3 days. On the day of the interview i was on the phone with the hiring manager and the senior SQL Admin. The hiring manager gave me an overview of the company and the senior database admin delved into the technical questions.
