    I have been working at U.S. General Services Administration full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    great work life balance, care about employees growth, flexible work schedule, great benefits, telework

    Cons

    limited positions outside DC, hard to find positions when you are a higher grade and have to move outside of the area. You loose talented dedicated employees because of this

    Contract Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at U.S. General Services Administration (Atlanta, GA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    In depth interview with 1 person in conference room and a laptop with 2 managers via video conference. I had to juggle looking at the laptop and looking at the manager in the room. One of the mangers turned their camera on, the other didn't. Very unprofessional. A lot of questions were asked that my resume did not support because I didn't have the experience. Not sure why I was selected for an interview. Tough overall.
    I moved onto the second phase and received a second interview via phone with 3 different managers. The second interview was personality based and went much smoother than the first interview.
