I worked at Washington Department of Revenue part-time (More than a year)
Fantastic people to work with. Very encouraging, provide a lot of support and opportunities for professional growth. In my experience, managers worked hard to accommodate and support employees.
Office politics can be a little stressful. I think this is found in any government agency, really, but can still be a big put off for anyone not inclined to deal with it.
I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Washington Department of Revenue.
Very lengthy interview... 32 questions and over 2 hours long! However, the interviewing panel was friendly, and genuine and while the questions were many, they did not throw a lot of weird behavioral questions at me ... most questions were relevant to the job, or to get a feel for what work style I have. All in all I would rate it a very positive experience, I felt comfortable and confident and I also felt they wanted me to be comfortable rather than feeling like I was in the hot seat.
