Great team that really wants to help people in distress
Regional Exercise Officer (Former Employee) – Oakland, CA – February 28, 2018
FEMA is a great agency with a get it done attitude. it is an expeditionary agency. This means that you must be willing to deploy for long periods away from home. Often to areas that may have few, if any, creature comforts.
This is a great job for young people as well as older employees who are not raising young children. The agency tries to promote work-life balance, however, that is difficult to accomplish when the workforce is deployed away from home for long periods.
