    I have been working at OSHA

    Pros

    Salary in major markets like NY City area or Chicago is good. Flextime and telework is available and now encouraged....within limits. Accumulating vacation and sick leave is very good. With the enforcement power of the gov, well let's say you often have a company's full attention when you audit or inspect them which can be satisfying if you get them to treat their employees better.

    Cons

    Many management gigs are set in advance and most importantly, if you get stuck with a non forward looking manager, or someone who you don't jive with, well let's say they can impact almost every aspect of your work here from evaluations to yes, dollar bonuses at the end of the year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take input from your employees or especially line staff seriously as after all, many companies seek out their advice on how to improve their own operations.

    Compliance Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Dallas, TX
    Anonymous Employee in Dallas, TX
    Application Details

    The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at OSHA in September 2011.

    Interview Details

    Strange interview- was asked several behavioral type questions, which was expected, but also had to calculate a math problem, on the spot, right in front of three interviewers. I was read the question and had to write all the details down and calculate the answer in a certain amount of time. Then I was presented with a typed letter and had to proof read everything and make grammatical corrections, all of which was down on the spot in front of the interviewers. To me, this was very strange because it broke up the flow of a traditional interview, panel or not. I feel this should have been done at a different time, either by HR or in a separate private room.
