    I worked at US Forest Service full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, nice work life balance, great pay and benefits

    Cons

    Terrible management, lots of dead weight. People care more about their time in service and number of days till retirement than the actual work.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at US Forest Service (Washington, DC).

    Interview

    My resume was sent to the Director by former colleagues. A few months later, I got a call for an interview. I first had an interview with the "right hand man" of the Director and then an interview with the Director and Assistant Director.

    Interview Questions

    • The interview was focused on both my technical skills and my "soft skills." They wanted to find out how well I work with others, how flexible I was, etc. They asked about my employment during HS (even though I was more than a decade out of HS).   Answer Question
