    I worked at US National Archives and Records Administration full-time

    Pros

    Great! It provided me some professional experience to really jump start my career.

    Cons

    The location wasn't the greatest for others. However, I lived and went to school in College Park.

    Advice to Management

    I would say allow the interns to speak on their future aspirations and guide them on the path.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at US National Archives and Records Administration (Saint Louis, MO) in December 2017.

    Interview

    Called for a phone interview which lasted about 45 minutes. Required to take a Physical Abilities Test which consisted of moving boxes, climbing a 14 foot ladder, and performing specific tasks under a reasonably time constraint. Was referred for the position. HR contacted me a couple weeks later to tentatively offer the position and give background check information
