I worked at NASA Ames Research Center full-time (More than a year)
- Great work environment. There are a lot of smart people that will work with and help you.
- Interesting projects.
- The pay scale is very low compared to the commercial side. If you decide to work there, it's for the love for science not money.
- The red tapes can get frustrating sometimes.
Advice to Management
- Get more big space exploration projects for the NASA AMES center.
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at NASA Ames Research Center (Mountain View, CA) in November 2016.
I submitted my application through my college job boards and received a call from the agency within 3 days. From then, I scheduled an interview for 3 days after the call. When I showed up to the interview, I was seated in front of four panels of 3 current staff members, including, at some points, senior members and recent hires. The entire interview took roughly four hours to complete.
