Cheapest company ever

Doesn't want to pay employees a fair wage,
Makes them clean the bathrooms, keep the outside area clean. Never helps with relocation fees. Talks down to employees. Makes employees do much more than what is contracted. Rotten place to work.Goes through employees very quickly.
Pros

All about money, employees are their slaves.

Contractor as a Doss Employee
Maintenance (Former Employee) –  COApril 13, 2017
Management and above will try and leverage what they can for the betterment of the company. Employees are seen as factory workers and are not respected for their knowledge and dedication. Doss is controlled by another company that is known for running companies into the ground. In fact, DOSS is loosing numerous contracts because of the political food fights they throw against the government. Their business and emotional intelligence is sub par and should be a major concern for future employees.
Pros
Hours are great
Cons
You will be expected to take vacations around the company's schedule and not your own.

A Productive job with great benefits.
Housekeeper/Laundry Asst (Former Employee) –  Pueblo, CODecember 9, 2016
Had a routine every day doing the same thing. Loved it was a full time day job Monday through Friday with weekends off. Had cafeteria for lunch, did not need to go anywhere. The management was a little too serious and put stress us to be perfect. Always being monitored.
Pros

Cons
Management was pretty hard and cruel at times.

Housekeeping is the worst job there
Ex housekeeper (Former Employee) –  Pueblo, COSeptember 15, 2016
You will be expected to work your butt off for a little better then min wage. Mopping floors on your hands and knees. Supervisors harassing you about every spot you miss. No raises ever. Insurance provided cost 700 a month.
Pros
Good company as a whole just not housekeeping or kitchen
Cons
Low pay

Not a bad place to work for a new A&P mechanic
Aircraft Maintenance Technician (Current Employee) –  Pueblo, COAugust 28, 2016
This is a decent place to work if you are new to aircraft maintenance and are just learning the trade. The aircraft are not complicated to work on and the hours aren't bad. It can get very mundane and repetitive though. Management isn't bad but it's a military contract so you have that to deal with. Also, it's a union shop and because it's in Pueblo, CO, the pay isn't great.
Pros
Nice cafeteria on campus
Cons
It's in Pueblo, Colorado.

good place to work
A&P Mechanic (Former Employee) –  Air Force Academy, COApril 27, 2016
Good place to work, good work environment, co-workers are great, Management is good, Air Force personal are great, enjoyed working with the different squadrons. Corporate needs help, seems to have no idea what goes on at the site. Adds more management and not workers when it takes both to get the job done. To many Managers not enough workers. Can get real slow at times, during the winter and holidays but makes up for it during the summer when it gets very busy.
Pros
Break times are goods, good workplace
Cons
Can get slow during the winter and holidays

Above average compensation and Benefits package
Manager (Current Employee) –  United States Air Force Acad, COFebruary 4, 2016
This is a contract maintence Company . So every 5-10 years the governement contract is up for re-bid. Not a lot of long time security.
Love the job..location. Company however, does not provide much chance of advancement or alternative employment once the contract expires. Nature of the business.

Dead end job/company
Housekeeper (Former Employee) –  USASeptember 9, 2015
not only will you NOT EVER advance in this company,
But the pay is horrible for the amount of work you do.
& you'll end up having to get a second job working with Doss.
You bust you're rear end working for Doss with no payout for you're hard work in the end.

Used to be a great company until it was sold to JF Lehman. Management is pathetic stating nicely!!
worker (Current Employee) –  Air Force Academy, COApril 8, 2015
Doss used to be a much desirable company to work for. It is no longer. Once sold to JFL its gone down hill quick. Too many managers with nothing to do constantly looking over your shoulder. The work is ok but definitely a resume dead end.
Pros
Good pay and 401k.
Cons
Medical benefits, Management

a typical day, co-worker
Supply Clerk (Former Employee) –  colorado spring , co AFACSeptember 6, 2013
a typical day at work was at anytime you get a plane down and the maintenance person would bring you a order form to order a parts that had to be in the next morning. we had vendor all over the world and oversea. we had to make sure parts number year model was a match to order part. one thing about my co-worker that I work with was all of my co-worker was ex-military and so most of them till thought like they was in the military and it cost a lot of problem in the office.
Pros
good place to work
Cons
you had to be rest up and ready to go every morning clear mind
