Question: when it says If management is interested in you after reviewing your applications, they'll contact you for an interview. Does that mean the management from the location I applied for will reach out if I am chosen. I know its a big if.

It means that the hiring manager from each job that you applied for will contact you, not HR

Serious question, OP:

Why do you want to work for the federal government? If you've been watching the news lately, you should be aware that you'll be lucky to get a paycheck. I would love to work for the IRS but only if our federal government changes the way they handle budge crises.

Ax|1156 I understand what you coming from but a job is a job. People need to expected that a shutdown can happen therefore why not plan for it by having an emergency funds. What it tell me his most American are in serious debt and if we go in a Great Depression people will be lost.

Government shutdowns do not normally last this long. As an IT person, he will make enough money to create an emergency fund.

It's not like he is a $15/hr TSA employee. They barely make enough to have a livable wage. In expensive coastal cities, they need roommates to survive.

Fed Gov jobs have many benefits. Annual leave, sick leave, good health care plans, paid holidays. I was just hired a week ago, and start next week.


There is also a nice retirement plan, with a decent match from the govt.
Using my military service, I will accrue 19.5 days of annual leave the first year. and 13 days of sick leave. It is also M-F from 0800-1630, no weekends required.

Pretty much same as before. Nothing new. Just keep on assuming nothing will happen until something does. You can worry yourself to death over Fed hiring.
