For a federal job application, you have to be both precise and inclusive. Any experience, paid or unpaid, counts. So volunteer work can be listed to demonstrate experience and skill. But applications have to include allrequested material or they will not be included in the body of applicants that the SME Panel will get to sort. So, if it says to include the dates, including both month and year, for employment as well as rate of pay, for each job listed under experience, then the application has to have all of that information included or it will not be forwarded.
