Anybody out there a GSA 1102 or know of somebody who is? If so, what’s the job like. Do you like it? Is it cradle to grave? Are schedules flexible? Is telework available?

I have an interview next week for a CS position at GSA. I’m currently an 1102 in the DOD. I heard the civilian side is different. Any and all insight is greatly appreciated. TYIA

Throw me a junky email. I can probably refer you to non-DoD 1102's who can speak to life in other agencies.

What do you think of your job at DOD, lawrunner? I'm looking at some 1102 jobs, but most are with DOD. If it's not a good place to work, I'll save my time. I'm not a veteran FWIW. Not sure if that might make a difference?

I assume the GSA position is in fedgov? OP is smart applying for gov’t jobs while the economy is hot. Some agencies struggle during good times to find solid hires because people prefer to make more money in the private sector. When the SHTF everyone and their grandma will be applying for government jobs.

Interviewed today. Thought it went decently. Kind of got that sinking feeling that they already had their picks though.

As for being an 1102 in DOD as asked above, it’s great. I’m on the post award side of the house, so I’d like to broaden my skill set and get on the preaward side. GSA is cradle to grave contracting, so best of both worlds. Good luck with applying all over. Fed gov 1102s is a good gig.
