    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at US National Archives and Records Administration in April 2016.

    Interview

    Panel interview over the phone. Main interviewer was very friendly and forthcoming. Each person interviewing asked me a question, and there were about 5 in total. The questions were supposedly standard ones asked by every government agency and revolved around gauging your customer service experience. The interview lasted for about 30 minutes including several questions I asked myself.

    Interview Questions

    • What experience has prepared you for this role? Describe a time you had to deal with a difficult customer and how was the problem resolved? Was there ever a time where you disagreed with you supervisor and how did you resolve the problem? Describe your technical and computer skills?   Answer Question
