Sin city. Hard to find decent folks.
General Laborer (Former Employee) – Pascagoula, MS – February 10, 2018
Its the shipyard, people use fowl language, management is cut throat and the good old boy system is at work and runs very very deep at this company. A day at work is hit and miss, the upper management gets kick-backs from making scheduled completions, and quality of work suffers from this time crunch. Management is luck of the draw, favoritism and politics play a large role in your position. The culture depends on which department you work in, overall there is a lot of gossip and its kind of like a high school physical education class. Hardest part of the job is getting to work early enough and fighting the traffic on the way home. The job has rather decent benefits for people with little education and experience. The company basically needs a lot of warm bodies because they get paid by the head count from the navy. There is a hand full of workers who really know their trade, and these workers are worked to the core, often times bringing their morale down, because of the added pressure to perform. This is the honest and straightforward work environment at this shipyard. Could be worse, could be better, its my opinion. Good luck.
