EPA Special Agents

Work Environment

EPA special agents work in offices and have at least 40-hour workweeks. Hours vary and increase when cases are heating up. Some travel is required for the job. For instance, a recent requirement for an EPA supervisory criminal investigator position in Atlanta, Georgia, required travel of six to 10 days per month. Agents may also spend time outside to conduct investigations. When outdoors, special agents work in any type of weather, so physical fitness and endurance are important.
