Mission: To sustain the health, diversity, and productivity of the Nation's forests and grasslands to meet the needs of present and future generations." Its motto is "Caring for the land and serving people.
I worked at USDA Forest Service part-time (Less than a year)
Excellent Management created an environment focused on learning, safety, and fun. As a type 2 Initial Attach crew we were sent to states in need of fire suppression personnel rather than being locked on our own forest. As a student the fire season allowed me to support myself easily throughout the school year.
I don't have any cons
Received an email notification to schedule a phone interview. Interview lasted 20 mins and was done by 2 people on a conference call. Offered job without an in person interview. Struck me as weird.
Reasons for Declining
I declined because there were no 2nd follow up in person interviews. I found it strange that there was no in person interview, shown the facility, or had the ability to ask questions specifically regarding job function. If I had known I would have asked during the phone interview.
