    GEOINT Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Slow, easy. Phone interview only, with a panel of 5 members. Overall, you submit your application, wait forever to hear back, and then a simple phone interview that really doesn't weed out too many people unless they're incompetent.

    Interview Questions

    • Q: What do you think about diversity in the workplace?
      Q: Name a previous experience you had something difficult happen and how did you overcome it?
