    Great employer for students!

    I worked at US National Archives and Records Administration

    Pros

    The supervisors are extremely accommodating for student schedules. I worked there while I was a student at UW and it was great. Decent pay, convenient bus ride (or parking!), nice supervisors. Paid sick and vacation, even for students!

    Cons

    There are no windows in the entire building! It is pretty tedious, repetitive work. Some days drag on and on and on.

    Cool Job To Have, But Wouldn't Make A Career Out Of It

    I have been working at US National Archives and Records Administration (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Weekend and Holidays off, Hours of operation are awesome( You wont get off any later than 6pm), Work really easy, and the work environment is really family oriented!

    Cons

    Really no room for advancement, It one of these jobs that you sort of have to wait for someone to quit or retire to move up and that doesnt happen often

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management was pretty cool most of the time

    I have been working at US National Archives and Records Administration as an intern

    Pros

    Had a great supervisor
    Easy work
    Really good pay for the type of work you do
    Earn Annual/Sick Leave, Credit Time, Time-off awards
    Management gave you time off when you needed it
    Management understood that school was your first priority
    Really good coworkers
    Set your own schedule
    No furloughs due to sequestration
    Standards are easy to accomplish

    Cons

    Hiring Freeze
    Same work all the time
    Since interns are not considered to be in "competitive service" (enough though hiring was competitive) they cannot apply to internal job applications
