    StarStarStarStarStar Former Operations Specialist in Portland, Oregon

    Benefits are very good, even with this anti-human, anti-community trump administration in power working to destroy and gut most of the useful federal agencies.

  • Nov 29, 2017
    StarStarStarStarStar Former Employee in Sheridan, Wyoming

    Great Pension, Vacation and Sick Time Off

  • Nov 27, 2017
    StarStarStarStarStar Former Contract Specialist in Golden, Colorado

    The best thing, in my opinion, was the support from line officers in their employees' personal matters, especially in granting flex-time, annual and sick leave.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Employee in Petersburg, West Virginia

    great benefits and a great environment

  • Jun 15, 2017
    StarStarStarStarStar Former Business and Office Support Intern in Los Angeles, California

    As an intern, I didn't get any benefits at all, even though I worked there for a year and a half. Interns do not qualify for competitive job status and cannot transition into permanent positions prior to graduation.

  • Mar 15, 2017
    StarStarStarStarStar Former Fire Technician in Fort Collins, Colorado

    At the time, very limited health care options for seasonal staff

  • Feb 24, 2017
    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Vancouver, Washington State

    Great benefits overall but monthly costs are pretty high

  • Feb 15, 2017
    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Bryson City, North Carolina

    Typical federal package available to all federal workers. Thrift Savings Plan instead of 401(k). This can be better than a 401(k) if utilized properly. Do your homework and contribute at least 5% every pay period

  • Feb 02, 2017
    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Washington, District of Columbia

    Best is the paid leave (holiday leave, annual leave, sick leave), telework opportunities, 5% matching, TSP

  • Jan 24, 2017
    StarStarStarStarStar Former Front Desk Associate & Invasive Species Assistant in Darrington, Washington State

    I was an intern so I couldn't get benefits.
