It is a panel interview where the people take turns asking typical interview questions, a lot of questions ask for examples (like an example of a time you had to make a difficult decision and how you made it) They are typically looking for 1+ minute responses.

Interviewing and asking very personal questions can be very stressful they ask what is the most stressful position you have been in, and what would you do if your life is threatened

Depressing by the questions that are asked. which have nothing to do with getting benefits, instead of those questions they should be more realistic as to household and income...

Very brief, this is the only government agency I have ever worked for who does not test for drugs or fingerprints. Anyone from any walk of life can work here with no questions asked.

Panel of 3 to 4 who ask you direct questions. They are not allowed to elaborate about the question, can only repeat the question. Very stressful.

They did not ask anything that had to do with the job. It was so easy to get in but now they ask stupid questions and it is impossible to get hired or even promote within the agency.

The interview was with all supervisors in the office I work in. The interview had structured questions that were rated. The highest scoring individual is typically the one chosen to hire. The supervisors who interviewed also made the interview personal and fun. They were very friendly and joked and laughed throughout the meeting. It made me feel more comfortable. I was interviewed along with 13 other individuals (separately) and I guess I scored the highest because they called me almost immediately to offer this position to me.
Interview was conducted by three persons, each asking varied questions, some expected, some not. Pleasant, quiet atmosphere for interview.

There is a panel of 2 to 3 people who trade off asking questions. There is little to no eye contact because they write down everything you say to score your answers at the end.
Panel interview of at least three people
