    I worked at FEMA full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I was there for more than a year. I enjoyed my time there and was impressed with the managers eagerness to assist us and was always visible during high call volume.

    Cons

    during high call volume there can be high call volume which really isn't bad - just hectic.

    Advice to Management

    I have none- great job

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at FEMA in July 2017.

    Interview

    Received a call from a representative, asking if I was still interested in the reservist position. Once I replied yes, she continued on to ask me general interview questions regarding my customer service experience. Once she was done with the interview process I was told I should hear from someone within the next 2 weeks.
