    Managers are all Ph.D economists, not trained managers
    Difficult for non-Economist staff to move up in career ladder

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Federal Reserve Board.

    Interview

    I met a recruiter and he got me a 30min phone interview. There were two men on the phone who briefly told me what they did, their division, etc etc. I was asked pretty much all behavioral questions. At the end I was allotted time to ask my own questions
