    Applied. Had general interview--we aren't supposed to hear back until late April.

    About a week ago. They got back to me really quickly about an interview. No idea whether they interview everyone who applies or how the screening process compares to the Obama administration.

    That's pretty reasonable. I applied yesterday, so I'm anxious waiting for an email, or a phone call. Thanks for the response!

    Had my general interview today-lasted 40 minutes

    It was a super quick process- I applied on the 20th and got an interview notification two days later.

    My interviewer mentioned that I should be receiving notice if I got the job by the last week of April.

    I may be expecting a second interview in case other departments had any more questions for me.

    References may be contacted

    Same experience here. They got back to me on the same day I applied with an interview request, so don't be surprised if you hear back quickly. They told me the same thing regarding a second interview and notification.

    Applied the last day they were taking applications. Can you comment on how you were notified that you were going to have an interview, and did they give you some choices of times?

    @swim4school they notified me by email, gave me one date + time and said if that one didn't work, I should suggest two times I'm available. Good luck. :)

    did the email come from the white house? Or a general address of a staffer?

    Never mind, I just looked at my email.

    It came from a staffer named Zoe

    @mjfan4life thanks! I was just reading past forums, and people were contacted as early as as the same week, or weeks after they submitted. It seems to really be a rolling admin.

    So you received an email about the upcoming interview, correct? I had read that one applicant just got a call while at work

    So I was reading forums, and had read that people are mentioning our "ranking" departments. But when I listed the five I wanted to work in, it was in alphabetical order, not ranking.... :/

    Is this true for others as well?

    Ahh, I should clarify here. Everyone had to do departments alphabetically, but I felt very strongly about two of them and let my interviewer know. I think they'll take that into account.

    I'm still befuddled by how they can interview so many people, unless they have some kind of split-second screening process.

    @dannyo95 thanks for the clarification on the ranks!

    If you don't mind my asking, how long after you submitted did you hear back? I've been waiting a week. I know that's not long at all, but seeing others have heard back so quickly, I was just wondering about timing. :)

    Less than a day. No idea what to make of that LOL. I'm sure you'll be fine. Who knows...maybe they're trying to interview a lot of people and got a bunch of apps at the last second (I'd applied a few days before the deadline).

    I'm a third-year. I don't think my case is exceptional--they really do seem to be trying to interview everyone quickly.
