Our work is in the pockets of each American. It fuels innovation and jump-starts dreams. We are the defenders of dollars—working hard to ensure the economic and financial stability of our country and our region.
We like to say we work for the Fed, not at the Fed. That’s because the SF Fed is not just another employer or government agency. Here, you have the opportunity to become part of an important public service institution whose work touches lives across the globe. The thought of economic and monetary policies may lead you to think of the Federal Reserve as solely a banking organization. Quite the contrary, as you can see, our work includes a broad range of disciplines.
From Omaha to Oakland, Portland, OR to Portland, ME, New York to New Mexico – the work we do for the SF Fed impacts not only our district but people across the county too. In the time YOU ARE HERE, you’ll do work that challenges you in an environment that supports your growth.
I have been working at Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco full-time (More than 10 years)
The people and benefits are what keep most of us coming back. It's a great place to work. There's balance, challenge, and fun.
It's still very bueaucractic. If getting things done quickly is what you want, it's probably not the place for you. Also, titles don't align with other organizations.
Advice to Management
Look to align your titles with those of other organizations. The pay is fair, but your titles suggest lesser roles
I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco in January 2015.
I applied in November and received a call to schedule a phone interview in late December. The interview happened in the beginning of January. The hiring manager and one person from the internship committee conducted the interview; they were very friendly and empathetic. They asked only behavioral questions and the interview lasted for about 40 minutes. When it was over, they told me I would hear back in a couple of weeks, but I contacted HR when I hadn't heard back in a month. HR told me they were waiting for all of the hiring managers to choose their interns before sending a response, but they told me my specific hiring manager chose someone else. A few months later, the HR person called me and told me another position opened up and all I had to do was accept it.
