General Clerk II (Current Employee) – Alexandria, VA – September 16, 2015
A typical day includes has understanding personnel and frequent moving around. Not the typical chain and ball effect to work at a workstation, but the freedom and liberty to move around frequently. Micromanagement is minimal, and independence is strongly encouraged. A lot of variety in day to day interaction and high turnover rate with many new faces.
Shipping/Receiving Clerk (Former Employee) – Perry Point – July 20, 2015
A typical day was waiting for the micro-manager to actually come to work so you could get started. The only thing I learned at this job was the extent of my own patience, it was the ultimate of hurry up and wait. The management normally couldn't be contacted until 10 about three hours after the day started. The atmosphere of trust was such that your co-workers would throw you under the bus at any hint of management dis-satisfaction. I've never seen so much finger pointing in my life. The hardest part of the job was trying to figure out how long you would have a job. The day they hired me a federal employee told me they had just recently laid off 40 people so this was beginning to sound a lot like a temp agency. After talking with other employees I finally realized that the majority of new hires were temporary expendable independent contractors. Unless you just need some extra money I would avoid this company and seek a more reputable one.
ASPR (Contractor) (Current Employee) – Washington, DC – June 16, 2015
I've been with GAPSI for almost three years and I have watched the company grow steadily during that time. I am impressed with the management team and their ability to connect with so many in the company in spite of their busy schedules.

DoS IIP/CSS/IT Sr. Project/Program Specialist (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – October 8, 2014
Not very much interaction with upper level management. Though they boost about future employment opportunities very little is done to assist you with possibilities once a contract ends. Some worked hard to try a find you a position for a little while and others fed you false hopes with expected start dates and then did not follow through or follow up.

Shirked Partial Responsibility for Error in Time Reporting to USG
Senior Management Analyst (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – February 5, 2013
Gap Solutions manages its client-placed talent with extraordinary anxiety, on multiple occasions firing talent in accordance with what it calls a zero tolerance for timesheet reporting errors. The problem is compounded by the fact GAPSI does not adequately socialize its policies and that talent are occasionally asked to turn around timesheets on short holiday weeks under time and work pressures with no opportunity to vet time reporting procedures with client technical monitor, who often has his or her own time reporting requirements in addition to those imposed by GAPSI. Talent who have provided laudable and venerable service to HHS have been dismissed for what amounts to a minor error unrelated to job performance. I myself worked over 80 hours for the pay period but bill only for the maximum 80 in order to accommodate an unexpected request to write the summary for a meeting of the Enterprise Executive Committee. A firing was the reward.
Since GAPSI was awarded an exclusive contract with HHS, I find myself excluded from the government agency to which my unique package of knowledge and skills is most suited.
In my case (and that of AT LEAST one other of which I am aware), GAPSI did not share the responsibility and risk of a rare and minor error in time reporting that was corrected before it was ever received by the client (HHS).
Test Verification Specialist (Current Employee) – Arlington, VA – November 23, 2012
GAP Solutions, Inc. was a fantastic company to join for my introduction to the white collar world. They were very attentive to employee needs, and made themselves quite available should I need answers or support during my time with them. They looked to boost morale, and motivate employees to grow. I would stay, but my position does not have promotion potential, and while it has been fantastic for earning a broad amount of experience, I need to move on to pursue my full potential.
great benefits, easy to communicate with, built solid relationships between management and employees.
Program Analyst (Current Employee) – Wasington, DC – October 3, 2012
