This is a great agency to work for. This company takes the time to train employees on each specific job that you have. The Agency is very welcoming and serves its purpose to the Unites States Federal government prospective.

Because it was a summer job I got the chance to say that I enjoyed working there for the length of time I was employed. on a typical day of working there I would come in and see what other projects that they had me working on and to top it all off I had my own desk, computer and work phone. The co workers I had were a bit older than me but they were nice and very welcoming. the hardest part of the job was trying to get whatever numbers they needed for certain projects that I didn't quite understand at that time. US Department of Agriculture taught me a lot of things while I was there and for that I will forever be grateful about the experience being around them. The most enjoyable part of the job was I had every Friday off and for my last day of employment they all came up with a party for me and we took lots of pictures
Pros
working on computers, filing
Cons
only a summer job

The emerald ash borer is a tiny but very destructive invasive insect that has attacked our ash tree population in the US. As a program coordinator, on a daily basis, I oversee all program components including, all federal regulatory issues, stakeholder compliance, state and federal agency involvement, quality assurance, accountability of contractor, and public outreach. I work with a wide variety of federal, state and local government agencies to ensure a successful program. Agricultural inspections for export and domestic movement are a daily task to ensure there is no risk of movement of this invasive insect and others.
Pros
independent work, work vehicle, insurance, annual/sick leave, teleworking availability, field and office time, working with agriculture/natural resources, travel
Cons
term appointments
