Most of the jobs here are rolling temporary positions. Even if the scientist wants to hire you for a more permanent position, that decision is completely out of their hands.

My experience working for the US Department of Agriculture was pretty standard, as is the case with many governmental jobs. I didn't see a lot of growth opportunities at my office which is why I ultimately decided to leave and go to graduate school. I did enjoy being able to work from home three days a week.
This is a civil service job that is very important for the safety of our nation's food supply. However, co-workers are often difficult to deal with and take their jobs for granted. Many employees are not dependable, which makes things worse for those who do go to work.
