I recently applied for and interviewed for commodity grader with USDA. In my interview I was thrown off when they essentially seemed as if they were trying to talk me out of taking this job. They made it out to be the worst job you could ever imagine. I'm curious from anyone with this position what it is really like. Any insight is appreciated.

Do you know the commodity you'll be grading? Coming from poultry / shell egg any issues with the job would mostly be from smell or heat. But it all depends on your supervisor. Working with plant management can be difficult, but the work is pretty regular, not a lot of surprises day to day, and you can travel around the area and cover new plants which is fun.
