I worked at OSHA part-time (More than a year)
Amazing workplace. Great experience. I worked at OSHA as an intern out of high school. I was offered a temporary position which was later extended for another year. I loved my time and OSHA and want to go back.
The con was that the government was running out of money and with the shut down of the government they also cut out the program under which I was hired and unfortunately lost my job due to budget cuts.
Advice to Management
Love you guys!
The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at OSHA (Dallas, TX) in September 2011.
Strange interview- was asked several behavioral type questions, which was expected, but also had to calculate a math problem, on the spot, right in front of three interviewers. I was read the question and had to write all the details down and calculate the answer in a certain amount of time. Then I was presented with a typed letter and had to proof read everything and make grammatical corrections, all of which was down on the spot in front of the interviewers. To me, this was very strange because it broke up the flow of a traditional interview, panel or not. I feel this should have been done at a different time, either by HR or in a separate private room.
