    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at U.S. Office of Personnel Management (Chicago, IL) in January 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process was easier than I expected. It was strictly a 30 minute phone interview. They asked great questions and allowed me to take my time in answering them. They were very friendly and easy to talk to.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked about my writing because the main duty of the job is writing detailed reports.   1 Answer
