    I worked at Centers for Disease Control and Prevention full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I started as a GS Level 5 with a great benefits package in terms of health and dental care. The retirement plan was matched at 3%. My boss was great! She was very supportive, and I felt like she had my back when I came across some challenges. The training for employees was also valuable. I could tell they cared about employe growth.

    Cons

    They pay could have been better. I also wished they covered relocation costs. Upper management was not that diverse, which I wish I could have seen.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (New York, NY).

    Interview

    The process is broken down into 3 stages. 1st. One week application window. It was very simple to fill out but make sure you know when the application opens and closes. 2nd. If you meet the qualifications then they will allow you to write a personal statement and ask you about your regional preferences. 3rd. Stage. If your personal statement was good then you'll get a Skype interview for 45 minutes. Due to the 2017 HHS hiring freeze I am still waiting to hear back -Aug 2017
