    Any advice for the structured interview?

    Comment


    • #62
      Here is what I've been told:

      1) Brush your teeth and take a shower the morning of the interview.
      2) Wear a dark colored business suit with a white shirt
      3) Be yourself, you'll be nervous but it's ok to be nervous.
      4) Study basic interview questions and think of examples from your experiences that will help answer those questions.
      5) Right before it's your turn for the interview, take a deep breath, hold it for a bit, then let it out.

      That's all I got.

        I wouldn't be too worried. That first step takes forever for HQ to determine minimum qualifications, just varies on an individual basis

          How was the interview? I’ll be at the Mac in November for the interview, pta, and written psych.

          Just be yourself. You’ll be fine. Only downside is, I was told by few even if you pass the exam, Panel and PFT, you can still fail because prior drug history. They don’t look at it until mid way through. So just a heads up for some people since the DEA is very strict on it

        I received an invitation to the MAC, for February 7th.

              I applied pretty much the last day the posting was open, any idea when i could hear back? Not sure i have enough time and experience but every shot you Don't take is a miss.

                Just be patient, it will be awhile. Anywhere from 2-5 months based off current 2018 applicants

                My steps have been two months apart, from application, test and then interview. Be aware that you need to complete the PFT within 90 days of interview. If you can't complete it, you may want to work with your recruiter to delay the interview. It doesn't sound like they delay the PFT.
