    I worked at Pheaa part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Pay was very good and Company was great to work for I wanted at that time just a part time job in the evening. Enjoy working putting information into computer and I like my co-worker around me.

    Cons

    Nothing I can think about I wish I could stay longer . I suppose back after my 6 weeks maternity leave but I could not we had two children so I quit.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Pheaa in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    Hiring and interview process is pretty straight forward. Be aware that even if you are hired you still have to obtain federal clearances and go through an interview with a federal reviewer if there are any questions. This can happen up to 6 mos. after your start date and if you don't pass you'll lose the job. Also, there is a 6-8 week training class and if you fail any of the 3 tests, you're let go. So interviews and hiring are pretty brisk as there is a high turnover. Attendance is ultra strict including late returning from breaks -this too can result in being let go.
