    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Washington, District of Columbia

    Cheap health insurance, prescriptions, and co-pays. Governmental health isurance is usually always great. I can not think of any downsides.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Forestry Technician in Payson, Arizona

    Benefits are minimal, however health insurance coverage in-season at pretty fair rates became available in 2015 which is nice.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Wildlife Technician in Bend, Oregon

    The benefits are great; good medical and TSP. The only downside is you have to work permanently & consecutively for 3 years to become vested and maintain 100% of these benefits if you were to leave agency for another job.

    The Forest Service, like the rest of the federal government provides excellent health and 401K benefits. The government provides matching up to 3% and the health care packages are superb.

    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.

    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.

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