    Accounting Technician Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Columbus, OH (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Defense Finance and Accounting Service (Columbus, OH (US)).

    Interview

    The process is extremely long and drawn out, which is to be expected with the federal government. After I applied for the position, there was a month wait until hearing I was selected for an interview, then another month until the interview, then a month to hear back that I was offered a job, then about two months before I actually started.

    The interview consisted of a three-person panel, all of whom were very polite and willing to answer all my questions at the end of the interview. There was five behavioral-based questions which were easy enough to answer.

    Tip to any future interviewers: if you are having a face-to-face interview at the DFAS campus in Columbus, OH, be sure to arrive at least 45 minutes before your interview to give yourself enough time to get through all the security checkpoints and get in the building. In my interview, I was informed by the panel that I was the only person who was on time out of the multiple applicants scheduled that day.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Defense Finance and Accounting Service in February 2018.

    Interview

    I applied through USAJOBS and went through multiple rounds of online screening and scenario based questions. A few weeks later there was a phone interview that included myself and three DFAS employees. They were friendly but the interview felt awkward because everybody was in a different location and were't sure when each other was done speaking. Two weeks later I received an offer.
