    The job you are doing is for the benefit of employees who work for private companies.


    There are many administrative and useless requirements that burden an employee from doing their job

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to analyze the tasks required of employees and eliminate those that serve no purpose

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at US Department of Labor in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    Department of Labor HR department asked for a letter of interest. It is extremely important to express yourself intelligently here. This is your first impression. Try to blow them away. With my letter of interest, I was able to get my foot in the door for an interview. They didn't ask me to submit my resume. Instead they told me to bring it in with me during the interview.
    During the interview, I had to go through the basic questioning. They asked questions like, "How do you see yourself contributing to the team?" It was a lot of scenario base response questions. I enjoyed the experience.
