It's like you're working for a temp agency.
Shipping/Receiving Clerk (Former Employee), Perry PointJuly 20, 2015
Pros: Government holidays
Cons: unstable employment
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.

overall it is a good company to work for
Warehouse Specialist (Current Employee), North East, mdApril 20, 2015
Receipt and verification against receiving documents and/or pick-list, prepare proper documentation of discrepancies, routing materials to proper warehouse storage locations or customers, use computers and inventory controlled devices in day to day warehouse operations, other duties as may be assigned.

I have learned to ship orders out internationally. can pack hazards, which sometimes can be confusing/

I like the people i work with and i enjoy pacling the orders for state dept. I do not like the fact that there is no room for advancement here for me and that i can not move up with the company.
I am looking for a career position and i dont see this as that path for me or my future.

Shirked Partial Responsibility for Error in Time Reporting to USG
Senior Management Analyst (Former Employee), Washington, DCFebruary 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).

Don't Be Fooled.
No comment (Former Employee), No CommentSeptember 26, 2012
Pros: casual dress and bring your dog to work on fridays
Cons: where to begin......
This company is dispicable. Their management is NOT supportive, and lack experience. They're employees are not appreciated and certainly not recognized. Any bonuses, employee appreciation events or special activities are very few and very far between. And job security at this company does not exist. This company is overrun with hostility and paranoia.

October 3, 2012

Not my experience at all, Management visits our contract site once a week and make themselves available for all employees. They provide "walk in hours"; make themselves available for face to face time to provide support to their employees. If you stop by, they will listen to you and will help in any way they can. I have received multiple praises for job well done. In today's economy it will be VERY hard to find a company that sponsors many special events. They did a Happy Hour not too long ago but not many participants showed up (it was a nice one too!). This is a contracting company job security is dependent on the contract terms.

March 25, 2013

I have never seen such a hostile and paranoid group. They have tremendous anxiety that their contracts will be taken away and they hold their contractors accountable with their jobs for the most minor and mitigatable errors.

Recognizes work ethic and talent!
Sr. Program Manager (Current Employee), Reston, VAAugust 17, 2012
GAPSI is a great place to work if you have a great attitude and enjoy a family oriented culture. Employees at GAPSI are often rewarded for their hard work with both compensation and corporate sponsored appreciation events. GAPSI has an open door policy and invites active feedback from their employees. GAPSI is a very family oriented enviroment that promotes and fosters talent!

Not bad to work for, though they were a little inexperienced in the particular field.
Yellow Ribbon Support Specialist I (Former Employee), Columbus, OHJune 6, 2012
Pros: healthcare, benefits package, enjoyable workload.
Cons: low pay, limited assistance with client relations.
I was a contract employee for the Ohio Army National Guard; it was my duty to organize and execute pre- and post-deployment events for Soldiers and their Familes. GAP Solutions, while inexperienced in the field, certainly gave it their best, and while certain issues did arise with the client at the conclusion of the contract, GAP Solutions did all they could to make my separation painless. They offered decent healthcare coverage and a quite reasonable benefits package (one week vacation and one week personal time for the first year), and while their payscale was low for the work performed, this was more due to the realities of contract work than any direct fault of theirs. Certain data-collection tasks were onerous, but these were required by the Department of Defense, so I can't fault the contract company. Overall, I was quite happy with them.
