Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Portland, ORNovember 28, 2018
Good Job, seasonal employee forever though, like 5-10 years. So even know you start at GS-5 about 39k, you will only bring home around 25k each year until you go year round employee. Job it self is verrryyy boring you just do the samething everyday. ALL phone calls.
Pros
Federal Job is awesome
Cons
no room for advancement, very boring taking the same phone calls day after day.
