Not organized and lack of Leadership Skills
Miscellaneous (Current Employee) –  Aberdeen, MDJanuary 18, 2018
Nothing is ever clearly explained. No room for advancement. All of Management needs some serious leadership training ASAP. Be taught how to be a leader not a manager. Employees are not treat like adults more so like children and talked down upon.
Pros
Depends on contract
Cons
Benfits cost too much. Lack of leadership skills

Poor Management
Laborer (Former Employee) –  Silverdale, WAMarch 7, 2017
Decent pay and benefits were all that were keeping me at this establishment. Management is lacking horribly. Safety department still hasn't submitted a set safety plan (and has been on site for over 2 years since taking over the contract).
Pros

Micromanagement and arrogant
Logistics (Former Employee) –  MarylandFebruary 20, 2017
Worked for this company for several years as Chugach which became Wolf Creek. Was a great company and really enjoyed coming to work until about a year and a half ago. They switched their management structure to micromanagement and placed managers with little to no experience in warehousing and employee relations and could care less..... Benefits are good but the workplace atmosphere is absolutely undesirable. Employees don't have a voice and if you go against their agenda you are automatically labeled as someone who does not want to do the job and given a excessive work load compared to others/favorites.
Pros
Benefits and time off, if in the union.
Cons
Management/supervisors

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

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.........
