    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at US Department of Transportation (Washington, DC) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Very easy, personable and really wanted to make sure it was a good fit. Male top heavy but it seems like there is room for growth. The panel interview was pretty high tech, with one guy actually Facetiming out of Seattle Washington. They asked questions about contributions to the agency I currently work for.
