    I have been working at Federal Energy Regulatory Commission full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The best thing about this place is the people are amazing and my supervisor does not micromanage. The work load is reasonable and you get plenty of time to finish the assignments. The telework and compressed schedule are really helpful especially for people with kids. The upper management make sure there are training opportunities. It is type of place where you get what you put into the job. In comparison to other agencies, the pay is better. I feel appreciated for the work I do and the pack that I am being paid fair. There is not aggressive competition between coworker because each person is rated on how they perform. Overall great place to work.

    Cons

    The work can get a little boring sometimes but it is upto you to convey that to your boss and they put an effort to find you opportunities that might interest. The IT department sucks. Otherwise no other issue.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (Washington, DC) in May 2014.

    Interview

    Job was not posted to USAjobs. Application included both undergraduate and law school transcripts, writing samples, cover letter, and resume. 1 in-person interview with 6 ALJs and office manager. The ALJs who interview rotate each year but generally the ALJs have extremely varying personalities. 1 in particular tries to intimidate but most are very friendly. They hope to hire someone with some rudimentary understanding of energy regulation but do not expect you to know too much as the industry is very complicated. Understanding sections 205 and 206 of the Federal Power Act is a great start.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked a few questions about my resume in particular including extra curriculars from undergrad (over 7 years prior). Other specific questions included:
      1. How do you feel about excel spreadsheets?
      2. What would you do if you had a memo due to 1 judge but needed to review 100+ pages of testimony at the same time.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    No negotiations as the job description included pay and this is a no experience necessary position.
