I worked at US Bureau of Economic Analysis full-time
Environment, Satisfying Work, Great Staff
Slightly Difficult Commute, Not many lunch options
I applied online. I interviewed at US Bureau of Economic Analysis (Suitland, MD) in September 2016.
I applied in March 2016 and received an offer to interview in September 2016. This is most likely due to some higher level hiring policy changes, but I had nearly forgotten what the position was when I was contacted for an interview. Interview itself was short. Only one round - in person with 3 hiring managers. They ask you a sheet of government questions in which you provide government answers. One of the hiring managers threw a curveball question in there which actually threw me off guard as I had grown used to the monotony of the questions. References were called a week or so later and an offer was received 2 weeks after that. A background check is required and that took about 4 weeks to get, with a start date set 2 weeks after that.
