Too laid back with no urgency
Operations Support Specialist (Current Employee), Wilmington, DEJuly 24, 2015
A day at work is like a nightmare. People stand around and talk all day as if there is nothing to do. To ask anyone to help out, causes problems. If you are not in with the click then you don't learned anything. The management sucks, they don't say good morning unless again if you are in the clicks, they bring their friends family in and give them the high paying jobs. Jobs that they don't have a clue to what they are doing, those are the ones that they trained. The hardest part of the job is going to work, I love to work I'm just not use to an environment where you do what you want, and when you want to do it. The most enjoyable part of the job is when it's time to go home and when the weekend come and holidays off.

Electrician Trainee (Former Employee), Washington, DCJune 3, 2015
I always look forward to a new day at work for Department of Labor. Its exciting to learn something new everyday. I wasn't learning just electrical work. My managers cross-train me so I learned some plumbing, facility maintenance, and little carpentry. Co-workers are helpful and respectful. Enjoyed working with so many different people.
