    I have been working at Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - The people you work with are genuinely dedicated to the agency's mission and many love their jobs.
    - The compensation and benefits packages are highly competitive for most entry-level jobs (less so for highly skilled and/or management positions).
    - Most employees report a high level of freedom and autonomy as they travel through the state conducting research and performing their duties
    - Only a small handful of staff seem stressed/overworked. The vast majority of co-workers I interact with on a daily basis appear to be managing their workload just fine.

    Cons

    - Jobs can come and go as the state legislature adds/removes sources of funding.
    - Occasionally you have to rely on assistance from other staff who are...less than helpful.
    - Customers can sometimes become hostile and angry.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (Salem, OR) in March 2019.

    Interview

    Two rounds, first one on the phone and second in person. Both were panel interviews, and pretty formulaic. Received interview questions 15 minutes before in-person interview. Panel was friendly but followed their "scripts" and there didn't feel like very much room to engage with them about what the job entailed and what kind of work I would be doing in the position.
