Congratulations. I had also applied for the position but my status was updated to "Not the top candidate". :( Losing all hope of getting a federal job.

I just got a call today for the same position, most likely in different location. How did the interview go?

Where are you being interviewed out of? It seems like there's a ton of positions available.

The interview was pretty basic with behavioral based questions (you most likely can find them on Glassdoor). If you're a pro at insurance stuff - you won't have any issues! The writing portion is scenario based along with a lengthy math word problem.

Let us know how it goes! :)

It seems like everyone's references have been called. So I'm not sure if that's just normal protocol or we all did exceptionally well LOL.

I have also interviewed for this position. I really enjoyed speaking with the people who interviewed me and am super excited about the possibilities. My references have not been contacted yet though so I guess things are still up in the air. Hopefully it would work out for us all. :-)

Awesome! Keep us posted on when you hear something. I will do the same.

I'm hoping reference checks are a good sign!
