Congratulations! You landed a job with the Federal government. You are a GS-14, or a GS-12, or whatever. You may even supervise some people. You worked hard to get where you are and you are not going to let the stigma that Federal employees are the enemy get you down.
But remember this- you are not alone. There are thousands of Office Automation specialists, logistics specialists, clerks, supply officers, security officers, and other General Schedule or Wage Grade employees that make YOU possible. Treat them with respect.
That big project you are working on won’t get in front of the boss unless the “front office” staff forwards it to them. That meeting you need to schedule won’t get scheduled unless the GS-5 scheduler puts it on the bosses calendar. Those nice Uniball medium point roller ball pens you like won’t get ordered if you treat the supply czar poorly.
Just remember this and you will do fine. Be nice to everyone.
