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.
Benefits are minimal, however health insurance coverage in-season at pretty fair rates became available in 2015 which is nice.
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.
Great Pension, Vacation and Sick Time Off
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.
great benefits and a great environment
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
Great benefits overall but monthly costs are pretty high
