I have been working at U.S. General Services Administration full-time (More than 10 years)
great work life balance, care about employees growth, flexible work schedule, great benefits, telework
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
I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at U.S. General Services Administration (Atlanta, GA) in October 2016.
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.
