I have been working at US Indian Health Service full-time (More than 3 years)
So far it's been a good place to work. You have to be flexible as far as location and take the initiative when it comes to advancement, which is typical for federal government. When I worked at HQ I was given 6 weeks to work at home after my son was born, and I was given 2 telework days per week routinely.
Some supervisors can be stuck in their ways, which can be archaic. Some supervisors aren't as flexible with work schedules.
Advice to Management
Don't micromanage. Take a more proactive role in employee career advancement, so you're not constantly losing/shuffling people around.
I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at US Indian Health Service (Cuyahoga Falls, OH) in March 2017.
Telephone conference call with three individuals. Typical questions about employee conflict , leadership examples, questions that can be found by googling govt. job interview. More focused questions on specific experiences.
