The interview process is typically long. As you can imagine the government moves slow. I applied to several positions at the SEC and at times it would take months after a first round interview to have a second round interview. Many employees have this same lack of urgency - some attorneys take days to return a call or email, and other employees telework, but fail to answer their phone or respond to emails.

I would say however, that you should pay attention to the group you join as some are much better than others.
