I have been working at OIG as an intern (Less than a year)
Great experience; high personal growth; extensive background check which looks great on resume; great people. The leave policy of the government is amazing. They were very flexible on my working hours since I am also a full time student.
No insurance but that's typical of any internship. There wasn't a whole lot of room for future advancement for me because I do not desire to one day be a special agent.
Advice to Management
I loved my experience so I really do not have any advice that needs to go to management. The work is not difficult and yet it is different every day.
I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at OIG (Grand Prairie, TX) in July 2014.
It's the government so it took weeks. I applied and heard nothing for weeks. Then when I was asked to interview, it was set two weeks out (which was partially my fault because I was out of state.) Then after about a week I got told I was getting the position. Then the background check started and it took a month from the time I heard I got the job to my start date.
The actual interview was very thorough but there weren't any surprising or difficult questions. Mostly, "Tell about a time when..." It was led by two people and felt very comfortable.
