Pros

You get to live and work on a team of people your age (18-24). You also get to travel all over the country on different assignments.

Cons

While working for FEMA, we did a lot of monotonous office work and were shuffled around during disaster periods.

    Legitimate gap year option after undergrad

    Low living wages.
    Housing situations aren't always ideal.

    Could be stuck with clashing personalites for the duration.

    Advice to Management

    We understand that we're not doing this for the money but little upgrade to our food budget and housing allowance would be nice.
