    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at U.S. Food and Drug Administration (Rockville, MD) in March 2009.

    Interview

    Initial contact through phone interview. Standard interview by a panel. Did not try the good cop/bad cop but wanted to know more about background and prior experience. Seemed very genuine in presenting what they do. Needed an engineering background but made it clear that they will train whomever they choose.
