    Pros

    The US Fish and Wildlife Service is a conservation agency. The work done there protects our wildlife resources nationwide. You work 40 hours per week and that's all. If you absolutely have to work more, you get compensated. You travel during your normal work week, not on your own time. The people you work with are, with very few exceptions, very nice and easy to work with. The pay is not as high as in the private sector, but the work-life balance is MUCH better.

    Cons

    The Federal Government has MANY rules and regulations that can be frustrating. But every work environment has frustrations.

    Advice to Management

    The management in the office I worked in was great. I have absolutely no advice to give them except keep doing what you're doing.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at US Fish and Wildlife Service.

    Interview

    It was brief, I was given the job after being a temp employee. The interview was done with a panel and I was asked a bunch of fisheries technician questions that had to do with SOP operations.
