    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at TSA (Transportation Security Administration) (Baltimore, MD) in September 2015.

    Interview

    The hiring process took about six months for me, but that was mostly because of the long security clearance process. After applying, it took about a month to be invited for an interview. After interviewing, I had an offer within a week. I believe that if one comes in with a clearance in hand, the process is much faster.

    Interview Questions

    • This was a typical, structured interview with two interviewers. Both were personable, and the questions, I believe, were standard.   1 Answer
