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

    Pros

    Opportunity for training, working collaboratively with other departments. Helpful co-workers, Pay and benefits

    Cons

    Offices are very outdated, difficult to hear callers on the phone due to open workspaces, Too many mandatory training calls. Feels like you are getting waterboarded with too much information all at once. You need like 17 different Passwords with different letter, number symbols that have to be changed frequently.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to trust staff's work without rewriting documents. Reduce office bullying and address loud talkers in their teams.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at HUD (New York, NY) in November 2016.

    Interview

    The interview was set up via email and held over the phone. It was a conference call between myself and two interviewers. The questions were related to the requirements posted in the job announcement with very few "personality" type interview questions.
