Worked for Department of Treasury for 5 1/2 years and enjoyed every minute of my time with the federal government. The only reason I am not still with the federal government, is due to pay cuts and laid off. Also, my branch in the department was moving to Parkersburg, West Virginia. Everyone in my branch was very helpful with teaching me new things and understanding when it came to my school schedule. We always had recommendation parties and holiday events that I was able to coordinate. A great place to work!

Improvements with training on every level along with the need for more permanent placement to be advanced. Consistency and Transparency needs to be reflected in a better day-to-day working environment.
Full-time hours during Seasonal period there.
Seasonal period never generates Permanent placements.
Remittance Perfection Technician (Current Employee) – Kansas City, MO – January 22, 2016
The training isn't always correct or available. People I work with make it most enjoyable. The job isn't hard except when we are forced to do others jobs and told we must meet their standards or it will hurt our evaluation. Management tells us things like that often that are not true to pressure us into doing others work quickly. I learned how not to treat people if I decide to get into management.
breaks too short, cafeteria cost too much, low quality food, some management have personal issues they take out on employees and get away with it.
auditor (Former Employee) – Kansas City, MO – December 17, 2015
I was a FPS group leader in the final department. I coordinated all problems and needs of fellow works in my group. Would inspect the autos and direct them into the proper repair area. I learned team skills with problem solving in their green belt training. It was physical labor but the people you worked with made it easier, you could always depend on someone helping you out on a bad day.
Tax Specialist (Current Employee) – San Juan, PR – November 7, 2015
Good location in the center of the capital, near the sea. The works hours are great. In payday you have two hour break. Learn to do multiple tasks and work under pressure. Good environment between co-workers and supervisors.
Government Jobs are just as much fun as they sound
Contact Representative (Former Employee) – Oakland, CA – September 2, 2015
Working for the department of treasury was fun. Management had there ups and downs but don't they all. I liked the coworkers, they made they work day so much easier. I did business taxes for company's, partnerships, LLC's, and even did some stuff for small business. I helped find ways for CEOs to keep their money. Taxes suck.
Good teamwork and knowledgeable co-workers. Management poor.
Tax Clerk (Former Employee) – Ogden, UT – August 26, 2015
Teamwork is essential and most problems were solved quickly within the team. Workload generally manageable. Lead co-worker extremely helpful and knowledgeable. Some upper management were friendly and helpful. Our department did not have a stable manager for over three years. That was difficult for us.
Receptionist Intern (Former Employee) – Washington,DC – August 20, 2015
Working for the government was something I took for granted. Great place to work and grow. Met a lot of new people from interning. I loved my mangers an coworkers. Everyone always walked around with a smile.
Accounting Professional (Current Employee) – San Mateo, CA – August 19, 2015
a typical work day was very busy, but the team I have is great they are aways whiling to help and make your job easier. I was able to take time off if I had the time, I did not have to make up time if I could not make work
