Great Work in Public Service
Logistics / Facilities Manager Reservist (Former Employee) – Denver, CO – February 7, 2016
I worked for FEMA as a Logistics Disaster Reservist in all parts of the country. This work was extremely rewarding and satisfying. Great job satisfaction, high morale, and a real test of your skills and abilities on every level.
I had little opportunity to become a permanent full time FEMA worker. However, I worked so much so often on disasters, I averaged around 70 to 90 hours a week. This was hard on my wife and family, as I was gone on the road a lot, and had no retirement or health insurance.
Our on site management was great and generally supportive. The extremely high morale of the FEMA staff made work a joy.
Helping people in th real world, good training, excellent pay, great morale
On the road all the time, no health insurance, no retirement. Extremely hard work.
