Prep Cook (Former Employee) –  Raybrook, New YorkNovember 14, 2017
A typical day at work was Busy and fast pace., I learned about handling food and interacting and communicating with people. Hardest part of the job was getting things back in order when someone through off the assembly line. The most enjoyable part of the job was cleaning up for closing and having time to socialize with co-workers before going home.

Vocational Rehabilitation Counselor (Former Employee) –  New York StateNovember 13, 2017
Good place to work. There was no micromanaging and very little need for supervision. The hardest part of the job was the low pay, not being paid on time and lack of benefits. The most enjoyable part of the job was working at my own pace and helping people move forward in their lives. Playing a part in an individuals rehabilitation afforded a sense of accomplishment and was personally rewarding.
Pros
Relaxed work enviornment
Cons
Lack of health care

A normal day
Account Manager/Incident Manager (Current Employee) –  Washington, DCNovember 6, 2017
A typical day I support different agency within the Department of Labor with any issue they may have computer related and sometimes not. I also make sure that there are no surprises for my Director. I make sure no small issues become a big issue. The culture here I think depends on who you work for and what's important to the individual.
Pros
You meet a lot of people within DOL.
Cons
You cant take two steps outside of the office without being stopped

Investigator (Current Employee) –  Washington City, DCOctober 23, 2017
DOL is a good place to work.
They are a typical government agency, that gets federal holidays off.
DOL has a flexible work schedule in which you can come in to the office between 6am and 10 am that is a plus for people with children or people that like to sleep in.
