Enjoyable but Unpredictable Work Environment
Emergency Manager (Former Employee) – Pasadena, CA – May 15, 2017
FEMA provided an enjoyable work environment with thorough training. The staff is large, and it is generally friendly. Some days are extremely busy, while others are slow. The hours were easy to adapt to, but many will not find a 3:30 AM start time suitable. A mid-day and late day shift are available. The major drawback is the complete unpredictability as to an end date.
The pay is good with future opportunities available.
The job is temporary and ends with little notice.
