Fast paced, think on your feet scenarios. Micromanagement is key.
Electric Power Generation Technician (Current Employee) – Manassas, VA – October 10, 2017
Overall decent job, a good stepping stone for a better position. Downsides include 50+ hours a week mandatory, low hourly wage. Management believes that excessive hours make up for low hourly wage. Friendly work environment with company vehicle and company phone. Travel time is paid.
A typical day is deals with ongoing communication with customers current ongoing projects dealing with scheduling, costing, government contracting, FAR clauses,
When not dealing with current customers, I spend my time contacting new business prospects that deal in OCONUS government contracting projects. The target customer will be dealing with large multi-year, multi-million dollar projects in hazardous areas or in classified government locations.
I have a very strong support staff that enjoys challenges that makes presenting new opportunities to the staff a typically a pleasurable experience.
The challenge with the position is dealing with multiple time zone projects located all around the world. This makes for a very long work day and work week.
Another challenge with the position is finding talented personnel that are willing to put in long hours, travel overseas into hazardous work environment, and have the ability to hold a government clearance.
Constant Challenge of capturing new business adds excitement to the work week.
