I interviewed at US Department of the Interior

Interview

The interview process was biased. It was clear that there was no real attempt to really hire or include people of color. The interview panel was not diverse and the tone of the panelists quickly informed me that I would not be selected.

Interview Questions
  • I cannot remember any of the questions - it was more an issue of how the questions were asked and the body language given in response.

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at US Department of the Interior

Interview

Initial application was on paper, followed by a 4-part assessment - reading comprehension, personal assessment (are you more like A or B), workplace judgement, and a series of logic questions, including LSAT-style logic games.

Interview Questions
  • The assessment questions are generally easy, but the workplace judgement questions were odd, and the logic games were difficult. Be prepared for that.
