  • Federal Reserve Bank LEO hiring

    Greetings all. Pardon me if this is posted somewhere else on the forum, however, nothing turned up in the search.

    A Few weeks ago applied to the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco for the position of law enforcement officer. Just a few days ago I received an email from their HR department stating that I had been selected to continue in the process starting with a video based interview. This video based interview as similar to a zoom meeting with the exception that there is no one on the other end. Essentially what you do is set up a webcam, login to the third party interviewing system online, and as you begin the interview a series of questions will be given to you and you will then have to record your answer. Being as you have unlimited "think time" to ponder your response and practice in front of a mirror, I'm assuming that I did pretty well with the five questions that I was required to answer.

    Has anyone been through their process before? What comes next after this video based interview? What about an approximate time hack for when I should receive a response from their HR department? The job vacancy announcement wasn't too informative about all this and the internet wasn't much of a help to me either.

    Fyi, this would be for the San Francisco location.

    Thanks again for everyone's help!

    I went thru the process for Seattle branch back in 2014. If they proceed you, they will throw you in the background phase and at the end up of it they send you to a medical. I'm not sure if I did a poly with them or not.

      Thanks for the feedback, scotty. I did a web based interview with them last Sunday and so now I'm awaiting a response. It was some kind of "one way interview" sort of like a zoom interview but without anyone on the other end. Basically, they ask several questions and you get a certain amount of time to think about how you want to answer, then you record yourself via webcam answering the given question. It was a new experience for me, but all in all I'd say it was a lot less stressful since you weren't actually talking to a live person.

      If you remember, about how long did it take for them to get back to you after your initial interview?

          I am in the process with the Los Angeles branch. I also took the "one way interview" and it was pretty easy and straight forward. A week after the interview, I took personal history questionnaire. It was roughly 180 questions about your personal history, finances and work history. Maybe 2 weeks after that, I was scheduled for a panel interview on Zoom. I'll be taking this interview this Thursday, so I'll let whoever's interested know the outcome once its completed. I have no clue what to expect next.

            Greetings all, I was contacted by HR a week after the panel interview and was told the interview went well. I am scheduled to meet with the chief via zoom next week. Anyone know what's next in the process? Where is the academy? I know they have their own in-house academy.

              Correct me if I am wrong but this is not a federal LEO job correct? This doesn't have FERS retirement, LEO retirement, or any connection to federal law enforcement correct? If you were to transfer from a federal LEO job would you loose all your time toward retirement, sick, and vacation?

                Only the actual Federal Reserve in DC is a part of the federal government. Much like Amtrak, your time in any of the 12 districts doesn't count towards FERS/TSP for retirement and no they're not under the special law enforcement retirement.

              That is correct, they do not have FERS retirement and your previous service will not transfer. They do have their own pension plan. I received a conditional offer of employment yesterday. I was told academy will be either in Ohio or Atlanta. Its only a 6 week academy.

                I can send you a video of one of the Ohio training instructors that will make your Chief decide to send you to Atlanta
