Customer Service Specialist (Former Employee) – Boyers, PA – May 11, 2016
Not a job that has a lot of stress. It is a job that allows for one to master skill in critical thinking and communication in dealing with customers on a daily basis. It was a fun environment to work at, while not being micro-managed.
Testing Administrator (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – July 28, 2015
A typical day at work was traveling to a high school to give an ASVAB test, and administering civil serves tests. I learned multi tasking is vital in the work place. Management and co-workers worked as team. The hardest part was having to tell a tester to leave the promise, because of cheating. The most enjoyable part was meeting people from all cultures.
Lunch time was fun.
Some locations were over 90 miles or more away from home.

Testing Administrator (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – March 19, 2015
get assignment, get testing materials ready. travel to location, proctor test to 4 to 300 individuals. collect materials, grade teats, transfer test scores to the MEPS office. Drive home fill out travel report and submit. Management was nice, helpful, always available by phone. I rarely saw co-workers. occasionally a large test would have several proctors. those I worked with were nice and did their jobs well. Hardest part of job was maintaining quiet with 200+ high school students. Most enjoyable, giving test to future military personnel. pay was hourly plus fuel expenses. paid for driving time as well.
varity of location, not boring
sometimes to manny tester at once. lack of disapline.
Mail Clerk/Mail Handler (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – January 19, 2015
Working for OPM taught me valuable mail room management skills. I learned how to process equipment control and inventory control. I enjoyed coming to work and interacting with the co-workers. The most enjoyable part of the job was learning new mail room procedures which I can use today. The challenging part of the job was to ensure we met suspense timelines, some which were on-the-spot suspense.

Test Administrator, former (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – June 5, 2012
All of the above. However, the position's description "PT Intermitten" should be restructured. And make the position itself more viable and do-able for the employees hired to do these positions. Higher up management should reconsider using these employees to ease the work overloads off FT regular employees and may the part-time intermitten positions into part-time regular positions. Get 2 birds with the re-description of one job (stone).
Management Assistant (Current Employee) – Washington, DC – July 21, 2012
Great agency to work for with a lot of opportunities. A very diverse group of people who are willing to lead as well as train those that want to lead . A typical day for me since I work in the Operation Support side of Retirement Services is fully understanding the best approach to paying out benefits to former federal employees as well as supporting senior staff in day-to-day operations.
The agency is Federal Investigative Services. It very regimented in its policies by necessity.
