Crew & Management were Kind & Respectful to everyone...
Journeyman Carpenter/ Maintenance Engineer (Former Employee) –  Oak Harbor, WAJanuary 10, 2017
The NAS - Whidbey Island Crew & Management were like a work family..
My day would start with getting back any unfinished Work Orders & then getting new ones. I would Manage & Complete 80 - 90 Work Orders a month. Each work order had a Due date for completion. After receiving a Work Order I would go check/ estimate the job, Depending on the Job, I would plan ahead and take repair materials with me, to repair the problem. Making it a 1 stop Work Order, or getting the needed materials ordered so to complete the Work Order before the Due Date. Most Work Orders had to be coordinated with other people, coworkers, other managers, suppliers, residents, etc. in order to complete the job.
We had weekly Safety meetings, to explain any new Federal Goverment work rules..
They paid good so they Expected you to get your Job done before the Due date...
Pros
Monthly Company provided Lunches.. Great Work hours 7:30 - 4:00..

The definition of Unorganized
Recreation Specialist (Former Employee) –  McKinney, TXDecember 29, 2016
If you love working at a place that defines unorganized, then this is for you. Timelines that are unrealistic and when they are met, they get changed around because none of the departments work together on communication. Meeting get planned and cancelled all the time. The wasteful Govt spending is the worst. They blow money like it's endless, yet they pay you pennies to work there. No job security at all. The only thing that's great is the insurance. Everything else is a dumpster fire
Pros
Benefits
Cons
Have to work on holidays if it's your scheduled day. They don't care

Great company, terrible pay
Accountant (Current Employee) –  Anchorage, AKAugust 26, 2016
Chugach is a great company to work for if you are seeking great benefits. If you're looking for great pay, this is not the place for you. Your education and experience is not taken into consideration when hiring you. Everyone starts off at only $18.25, no matter which finance department position (AP Tech, Payroll Tech, Job Cost Tech, etc...) you go into. Management also isn't so great. If you're looking to get your foot in the door for some experience, then this would be a good place to start... Not much room for growth.
Pros
Great company, excellent benefits
Cons
Terrible pay and management

Really about the bottom line
Welder (Former Employee) –  Wake island hawaiiMarch 5, 2016
This company offered a 5 dollar per hr fringe benefit in place of nsurance. They also believed that wake island did not fall under the jurisdiction of the state of Hawaii..they refused to pay any taxes to Hawaii or insurance both unemployment and health insurance..it took forever but now they have to pay for many years of trying to skate by..not a good company.
Cons
Believes they are right always..ignore it and it will go away.

Kwajalein is a Great location, good weather and fine diving and fishing
Plumber (Former Employee) –  Kwajalein AtollNovember 8, 2015
Chugach Corp. is the cheapest company, never fill openings so upper management can get bonuses for year ending under projected budgets. If contract is broken, Chugach will sue for reimbursement of airfare to location, food cost during travel and hotel stay enroute, even going to collections. The same is the policy with purchasing equipment frugal driven to ensure management bonuses. Not a good choice of companies for employment. Forgot to mention way below scale salaries.........

Good company, but when working with KRS it's a different story
Wastewater Treatment Plant Operator (Current Employee) –  Roi-Namur, RMIJanuary 29, 2014
Chugach Management Services Inc. isn't a bad company to work for, but this position listed will be working with KRS in the Marshall Islands and that's a different story. With the budget tightening all the time the jobs in the RMI aren't what they used to be. Tax free is not tax free when you pay 5% to the RMI government. A small % is taken out each pay period to cover Alaska unemployment insurance as well. Many burdens and poor internet and basic shopping, mail service etc. may make you think twice.
Pros
Room and board in the RMI
Cons
poor mail service, poor internet, limited if any OT, OT is straight time not time and a half.

General Ledger Technician (Former Employee) –  Anchorage, AKOctober 14, 2013
My manager was the most patient for whom I have ever worked. I was hired without haveing any knowledge of general accounting principals and was trained from the ground up. Chugach was a great place to work with wonderful people.
Pros
Free onsite workout facilities, coffee shop in lobby.
Cons
Before I left we were given a 'choice' of one healthcare plan that covered virtualy nothing.

High volume accounts payable in a wonderful office setting
Accounts Payable Technician (Former Employee) –  Anchorage, AKApril 14, 2013
Chugach Alaska Corporation is a native owned corporation dealing in construction, education, environmental and telecommunications services.

A typical day in the accounts payable section starts with prioritizing invoices due for payment in preparation to meet the weekly deadline and working continuously until the deadline is met. Attention to detail is paramount and striving to meet personal and department goals are key to success in this position.

A techs desk and work product are reviewed and standards are expected to be met.

The co-workers there are all very friendly and competent in their positions.

Maintaining high invoice volume while keeping low error rates are the biggest challenges. Assisting off-sites with their accounting processes can also sometimes be a challenge.

Meeting or exceeding department and personal goals leaves one with a feeling of accomplishment.
Pros
fun activities and weekly team and department meetings. great benefits and people in this company.
