    I worked at US Bureau of Economic Analysis as an intern (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I worked directly with the Chief Economist on a Health Care project over the Summer. I got a large degree of independence and was able to learn a lot from her and the other economists I worked with.

    Cons

    It's government work, so it can be a bit boring, but overall nothing to really complain about.

    Accountant Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at US Bureau of Economic Analysis in December 2010.

    Interview Details

    The interview was easy enough and went well. However, after the interview they dug into my references inappropriately.

    They kept inquiring about one particular job I had a bad experience with that scheming danced around providing a complete reference. The hiring manager inappropriately asked me to send a "release" letter to the former employer so they would release more than basic reference information. They wouldn't drop it or tell me specifically what they were looking for. Instead, they just dropped me. It's OK because I found a better job than this soon afterwards anyway.

    I didn't know at the time that I could have filed a grievance and got an official offer, payout, or both. Then again, did I really want to work for someone that behaved like that? The work looked particularly boring and didn't seem like accounting work anyway.

    Advice to hiring manager - Realize that it's not always the employee's fault when a former employer badmouths them.
