Hello everyone -

I'm conducting research on the Financial Institution Specialist (Entry-level Bank Examiner) position at the FDIC.

I would appreciate any constructive thoughts on the following:

- Interview structure, process, questions, etc.

- Hiring/ recruit time lines

- Salary & negotiation process for outside hires.

- General competitiveness for the job (Are they fairly strict in terms of recruitment? Are they only looking for Accounting majors nowadays?)

- Culture at the FDIC (Office politics, etc.)

- Training: Is it possible to complete the commissioning process in 3 years?

- Any thoughts on particular locations.

- And general advice for anyone looking to start a career as a Bank Examiner.


*** Thanks so much! ***

I haven't heard anything yet. Hoping to get onto the next interview cycle. The only thing I know is that they hold panel interviews.

Have you been contacted for an interview?

interview: you go to arlington/dc for a few days with about 50-60 other people. have a dinner with upper management and execs. interview day with two interviews: a question interview and a case study. extend offers next day. get a call about 1-2 weeks before the interview to offer chance to interview.

salary: base wiht locality adjustment. if you have other experience they said there is room to neogiate.

requirements: i didnt meet a single accounting major. everyone was finance or econoimcs for hte most part. ranged from students finishing school to CFAs, CPA, people who had been laid off. pretty competitive.

culture: it seemed pretty nice. causal in the office. everyone i met 50 employees were extremely nice. arlington/dc offices were great.

Thanks for replying. I'm curious to know how strict were they on the location preferences. Was there any room to negotiate following an offer? And when did you interview?

Thanks again.

Hello nysteve86,

I was wondering if you would be so kind as to provide additional information. For example, what did the math consists of? Was it accounting? Were calculators allowed? What types of questions were asked? Were they behavioral interview questions? What was the nature of the case study? Are you a financial institution specialost? If so, how do you like it? I look forward to reading your response soon. Have a lovely day!

-What type of analysis was needed for the case study interview? I have heard that analyzing the balance sheet and income statement were part of the case study, do you have any other relevant details?
