    Pros

    Great place to work. Everyone is very nice and helpful. Perfect job while still being a college student. Pay is also great for a student. Best part is being able to study while work is slow. Constantly in front of a computer so you can make the time pass by real quick. Get to interact with people from around the country and all walks of life. They throw a lot of office parties with great food. Every now and then get the chance to see the former President. Best job I have ever had!!

    Cons

    Customers can be very annoying and demanding at times. Have to answer phones and answer dumb questions all day. Questions are very repetitive and get old. At times you get used to it being slow and when it suddenly get busy that kinda sucks.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at US National Archives and Records Administration (Saint Louis, MO) in June 2014.

    Interview

    Had a pleasant interview, but was rejected in short order. I had a 10 point hiring preference, but they didn't seem to consider it. Seemed to be a lock for the job until the end.

    Interview Questions

    • General, run of the mill questions: e.g., "Tell me about a time when you provided excellent customer service." "Tell me about a time when you dealt with a difficult coworker."   Answer Question
