Social Security Administration photo of: Not a very inviting work environment. The office has signs everywhere reminding you to be quite (you can see two in this picture alone). All you hear during the day is the sound of people typing.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Social Security Administration.

    Interview

    I interviewed with a panel of administrative law judges over teleconference. They explained the job, its requirements, and the need for high quality work product. They then took turns asking questions. At the end you are allowed to ask questions.
