I have been working at Energy Information Administration full-time (Less than a year)
Benefits. They give you lots of options for projects. People are nice. Barber and gym on site. You'll get your 13 easily.
Need to be self motivated. Can be boring at times because a few get a lot of work while the rest get bread crumbs. Lots of complaining from staff about upper management which makes work feel toxic. Contractors at eia do a lot of the work feds do at census in comparison.
I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Energy Information Administration.
Applied via the usajobs.gov website then waited a month for the posting to close. A few weeks later was reached out via email from one of the team leads for a phone interview. After the phone interview, was invited about 2 weeks later for a skype interview with several team leads and the office director. Got an email from HR a month later saying I got the job, providing I pass their background check (non-secret, just a general check).
