"DOL has been OK to work for. I have been able to grow and learn a lot. Government seems to be behind in a lot of areas technologically. My direct bosses have been excellent, both having real experience, not just trained as a business supervisor."

"The project is a web-based claims processiong system called the unified energy"

What do you like about working at Department of Labor?

"I am really curious to learn. Lots of thing I've learned from this company. Also I want to to know how to manage QA Process, how to handle different jobs and so on. In this company all projects is process oriented. That's why I would feel really great working at the company."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"Please dont let just anyone screen resumes.Please dont let just anyone make screening calls.If you are strapped for employees and/or cash, please at least have a word with the person doing the screening and make sure they really know what theyre doing and what you want.If you rely on automated screening of resumes, please make sure the people programming in the key words really understand how to do it well and how important this initial selection via key words is.When it comes to screening, cast a wide net at the initial pass if at all possible, despite the massive numbers. You may catch a big fish. (I have found and hired good people who would have been totally missed in a rigid screening.)If you say youre going to call someone, make sure you do. If you see youre going to be late or not able to do it at all (perhaps you found THE candidate), please let the interviewee know ASAP.Please take the time before you start the hiring process to have a general action plan and inform everyone in advance of their roles and potential timing.Please keep candidates informed. I know how hectic things get, but initial understanding of the anticipated process flow and a simple level of feedback can help keep people from jumping out of their skins and maybe save you lots of unnecessary e-mails and phone calls.Let the candidate know how they can best keep informed of whats happening. If you dont want phone calls or e-mails, let them know. It drives them crazy to just hear crickets chirping. At least if they understand its simply your policy, they wont take it quite as personally. ;-)When you call folks in for interviews, help them by letting them know if this is going to be a lengthy process for instance if you know this round alone will take a few weeks for scheduling reasons or whatever.When you conduct an interview, treat each candidate with respect even if you already know its a no. (Offering them water or maybe a cup of coffee / tea when they get there and having a comfortable place for them to wait is a big plus.)Take some time to familiarize yourself with the candidates resume and job description. Youd be surprised how many people wing it.Ask questions that give the candidate a chance to tell you about themselves. Dont try to trap them or give them a hard time just to see how they do. Come up with good, open ended questions that let them show you who they really are.Be clear about what youre looking for and what the job entails. And ask questions that really get at whether they can do the job by probing past experience both successes and failures. (How they approach the question and how they actually handle failures can be a good indicator of what theyre like to work with.)If you check references, please dont check everyones references. People sometimes look for a job for months and months and their references shouldnt be bothered unless theres a pretty sure offer coming.If you really arent interested in someone, please dont wait until the end of the entire process to let them know. I understand this is the policy in many places, but it can be a cruel one. Maybe this policy should be revisited Or at least, let candidates know up front this is the way you plan to do it.Please wrap up the process and let people know where they stand as quickly as is humanly possible. Its good for them and for you. Sometimes the hiring process drags on and on simply because no one person is driving it. Make sure someone good at moving things along has the wheel."
