Personnel II (Current Employee) – Atlanta, ga – September 1, 2014
Good company, very little communication. Never had a review or very seldom communicated or than email. The Supervisor for my position was only available via email only on occasion would I get him on the phone. No real problem with that I just thought it was different.
Data Entry Specialist (DC DMV) (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – June 14, 2014
This is a really great temp agency to work for. They try very hard to find you higher paying assignments. They also help you work towards getting your clearances in the process. I highly recommend this team of professionals.
(Contractor)FOIA Paralegal (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – January 4, 2014
A typical day at work is processing FOIA cases from cradle to grave. How to apply different exemptions to a case being able to identify fugitives cases, asylum testimony, investigations from other agencies, etc. * I manage to complete 10 cases a day and prepare them for signature from the government FOIA Officer. * Some days depending on how many cases that have been closed I assist the admin with batching and closing cases both on the data base tracking system (FileMaker Pro) and mailing cover letters and redacted documents. * The most challenging part of my job is researching (ICE) pacific procedure on applying exemptions. In the FOIA world exemptions are applied to a case according to the government's agency specificity. Once I understand how the agency thinks in terms of what important to withhold and what's ok to release my job is easier.
The cases are interesting, I letter something about different laws, policies and procedures of the agency and how they opporate.
This position has sharpen my comprehension skills.
