Janitorial Worker (Former Employee) – Newport News, VA – November 4, 2016
Worked for them long time ago. The company I was sent to was OK but not great. I worked for almost a year. Two or three previous temps, hired to do same job I was doing, gained permanent employment within 3 months. I kept being told there were no openings. There were. I observed one thing most women at this company had in common, blond hair, blue eyes, and 95% were very thin. Just an observation? Yes. But, one that no seeing person can ignore. I was verbally attacked by my superior in front of many people, for saying to someone that I wish they would work me more because I'm needed five days a week not three. They expected me to squeeze five days work into three. As a custodian working a huge warehouse full of filth, bathrooms, men and womens were disgusting, the statement was true. I did need to be there. I won't lie, I was let go because of my reaction to such an abhorrent display of uncouth behavior. The company (CTR ) never defended me or asked me what happened. They never called me for another job. I didn't care. If I'd known what I was walking into, I wouldn't have taken the job. Lesson learned. I opened my own cleaning service and have worked for myself on and off since then. I've also worked retail, I love working with people.
If you accept a job based on a particular description, and find out its not what was described, immediately ask to be placed elsewhere. Don't stay where you can't thrive
Powder Coater/assembler (Former Employee) – Newport News, VA – December 22, 2015
Working for this agency was ok. The pay is terrible for the work they expect out of you. They're not honest about the job they send you too. When your assignment is over, they don't even try to place you someplace else and there's no support.

Painter (Former Employee) – Newport News, VA – October 5, 2015
A typical day at the shipyard is going over the safety issues before we start working. Gather paint and supplies and job assignments. The most enjoyable part about working at the shipyard is seeing the finish product.
Machinist (Current Employee) – Newport News, VA – July 10, 2015
A typical day at the shipyard begins at 7 am, I make sure to wear all proper protective gear. I start my work and don't stop until my lunch break, after lunch I get back to work until 3:30pm dismissal. Management is supportive and understands the projects well. Hardest part of my job is meeting wonderful co-workers that we bond and then we have to go off to another project.
