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.........

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.

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.

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

Cons
before i left we were given a 'choice' of one healthcare plan that covered virtualy nothing.
