Job security is good, and the mission teams cover some interesting areas.
Innovation is limited, little opportunity to advance beyond Band II level.
I applied online. I interviewed at U.S. Government Accountability Office in May 2017.
I applied through USA JOBS months back. About 3 weeks ago I got an email inviting me for an interview. Last week I had the interview. It was over the phone with a Director in the D.C. office, and an Assistant Director in the Dallas Office. The interview lasted a little over an hour. They were really nice, and seemed interested in what I was saying, even though I'm sure they had much more important things to do that day than listen to me. It was just a really cool experience to be able to talk to these people who have been with GAO for a long time, and are pretty high up on some high profile government agency financial audits. Even if I hadn't been offered an internship, I would still have positive things to say about that interview! It was just so cool to hear about their experience, and some of the things they have had the opportunity to work on.
