same gsme different company
Guard II (Former Employee), PittsburghJuly 13, 2014
Pros: its a job and as far as security pays ok
Cons: prepare to work jacked up hours and betreated as a subhuman
Just likeevery other govt contract security company.Basicly do whatever they can to squeeze every penny and it usually comes out of the employee. Put physical fitness standards on employees immediately after taking over contract then give 30 days to pass or your fired. CDC in Pittsburgh lost half the guard staff. Some had been there for years. I guess – more... loyalty means nothing. Anyway don't expect much from these folks. Cutt throat like the rest. – less

I enjoyed working there
Supervisor/Lieutenant (Former Employee), Arlington, VAJune 14, 2014
Pros: it was brand new and starting up a project was a great learning expiernce for me.
Cons: could not trust my two of the managers that worked directly over me.
I found that I was catching some of my managers in a lot of lies. Made me very uncomfortable, however, overall, I enjoyed working with officers who wanted to make a difference.

Productive and fun workplace with Chenega
Armed Security Guard PL 1 Facility (Former Employee), Schriever AFB, COMay 28, 2014
Pros: keep security clearance.
Cons: weather, salary for your responsibilities and hours spent at work.
This was my first experience outside the military. A typical day at work was 10 to 12 hours on your feet, expected work day, but challenging at times with customers.The management was minimum which required you to know you job. My co-worker came from many different background consisting of military and non-military. The hardest part of the job was the – more... one week advance notice of your shift work times. Other challenges where working outdoors in the extreme cold or extreme heat with standard work gear. The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting different people and knowing you are the first line of defense for others protection. – less

Chenega could careless about the contractors on site
EMT (Current Employee), MacDill AFBMay 11, 2014
Pros: getting to provide ems care to military personnel
Cons: lack of ems expierence by the on site supervisors and chenega management, not having issues addressed accordingly
I have worked for this company going on 18 months intially all the contractors were told we would be getting a set amount of hours each pay period since day one we didnt recieve what was agreed upon and in the past 18 months the hours have gotten less and less. The project manager, which is across the country from our location, will not professionally – more... discuss anything with the contractors that are on site and will talk over you anytime you are expressing a concern This is a EMS contract and apparently Chenega has no expierence with this due to the amount of problems that have been expierenced in the past 18 months. The job expierence requirements are not being met by Chenega with the contractors, they seem to hire someone just to fill a spot for the contract (which is someone with no expierence and this is not the place to have no expierence with the lack thereof in the project managers and on site supervisors) and not what is in the best interest of the contract. I have been through one contract renewal process and will be up for another in 6 months and theyre the most stressful situation when you get no word until the day the contract is supposed to end or not. I am not familiar with other government contracting companies but i would not recomend working for this company. I am currently pursuing a more stable company that acutally stands by thier agreements and cares somewhat for the employees. – less

Pros: never join military so i felt like i was serving, by being at the gate.it was like i was on front line.

I've learned hand to hand, MEB baton training,OC – more... pepper spray training,gun and shot gun training, and writing reports, filling out forms, To include First Aid, CPR.The hardest part of the job was the 12 hours work days The most enjoyable times was when a client come and tells you that they feel safe with you and your crew on the gate. – less

Great place to work, excellent benefits and a fun work environment
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Alexandria, VANovember 20, 2013
Pros: free lunches, office parties, pay, benefits, relaxed environment
a typical day at work would be I come into the office and walk to the kitchen to get a cup of coffee. I start my day by taking all of the employee files out of the cabinets and making sure that they all have the necessary documents needed in each of them. I create spreadsheets in the company database with the backup employee files. I also boxed and – more... shipped files to different office locations. I learned time management and how to work well with others. My co-workers were very friendly and helpful and showed me the ropes of the job. The hardest part of the job was memorizing all of the different departments and the names of the employees that Chenega contracted. The most enjoyable part was being there and interacting with everyone else as well as having my own cubicle and working in a relaxed paced environment – less

Productive and fun working environment.
Counter-Terrorism Analyst, Strategic Fusion Cell (Current Employee), Guantanamo Bay, CubaSeptember 23, 2013
Pros: one of the former pro's was that we were able to work a holiday and use it at a later date.
Cons: flights on and off the island are quite costly.
A typical day at work begins at 8am and ends by 5pm with low to medium stress levels. I have learned to be flexible and open minded since being employed with Chenega Federal Systems. In general, my co-workers have been a joy to work with and many came to feel like family.
