      It's great to be outdoors and learn all of the tree species, and you meet some good people


      Very hard work for long hours. Not a lot of money. People get payed MUCH more for MUCH less work in the Forest Service so it's hard to stay motivated

      I got an offer from Amazon with a start date of mid-Nov. I already have an important vacation planned for a month from mid-Dec to mid-Jan. What should I do?

      Just finished a case interview. Overall, I thought it went well but was a little confused at one of the charts they showed. After I provided my recommendation the interviewed said "great job" then moved on to questions. Is this a good sign to is this something that is commonly said by interviewers?

      What do you do to not think negatively when waiting for a response after interviews? How long do you wait to for them to respond before you do?
