    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Federal Reserve Board (Washington, DC).

    Interview

    I was sent an email regarding an auditor opportunity that matched my profile asking to do a phone interview the next week. A couple hours after the interview, I was invited to come down the next week to DC for an in-person interview. The in-person interview consisted of a 3 person panel interview. The entire process was quick. Took about two weeks.
