ICA provides foreign language training & testing & translation & interpretation to government employees such as the State Dept., Department of Defense and Commerce, US Customs and Border Protection, International Banks, NGO's and many more.
It's a great work environment both for the teachers and the students.
I really enjoyed my work there.
A good work atmosphere, holiday parties. field trips
Average work place, somewhat unorganized, lot of confusion among management
Road Service Technician/CDL Driver (Former Employee) – Dallas, TX – October 6, 2017
Loading machinery and equipment on trucks to start work, learned the laws of traffic change, learned the duties of placing and diverting traffic through barricades. Hardest thing about this job was dealing with the fast moving traffic and being careful.
Store Assistant (Former Employee) – Norway – December 28, 2016
My typical day consisted of restocking produce, ensuring store presentation by cleaning, moving groceries to the front of the shelf and checking expiration dates. Additionally I also served as a cashier for half of the workday.
ICA was contracted with the state to pick up debri following accidents along Interstate 75 through several counties. A different field then I was use to. Work was easy, nothing challenging but great co-workers
Detention Officer (Former Employee) – Farmville, VA – August 27, 2016
Everyday was a new and different day, it was the same work but it would be something to deal with everyday. My co-workers made the 12/hr shift go by a little fast, trying to keep each other awake on the night shift.
The start of the day was always a review of Jobs in your department to make sure hot jobs were worked on first. Machines were set-up accordingly and run. The Shop Supervisor would make adjustments in scheduling jobs and would check with you about incoming work orders. Most co-workers assigned to the hardware department were good-natured and reliable. The company has a seasoned workforce with diversity of skills. I learned to manage work order scheduling, pulling and issuing materials for jobs, setting up hardware presses. I found working well with others and being able to instruct them on processes makes for a productive day. Always recheck your work. Inspection is key to good product. The hardest part of the job is not enough workers and some jobs require a lot more time and skill than the average worker can do. The most enjoyable part of the job was being part of a team. Management was available for questions and were present on the the shop floor through out the day. They were personable and said "Hi", to the employees.
I absolutely enjoy each of the folks that I work with at ICA. They are extremely helpful, patient and respectful towards their Field Adjusters. It's a little tough to get answers at times. I would enjoy some feedback on my work, but otherwise I hope to continue a long working relationship.
Patient, Non-political people to work with, a real pleasure in communication. True professionals.
dispatcher (Former Employee) – Orlando, FL – December 24, 2015
I was hired as a dispatcher for the I-4 Ultimate Improvement Project in Orlando, FL. It was an enormous undertaking.
Us dispatchers were responsible for a host of crucial duties. We received no training. As in, 0% of the necessary training. I am not exaggerating. We were tossed in the seats and held to incredibly high standards without any training.
It was a joke, beginning to end. The project manager was a joke. The managers were jokes. My coworkers were a joke. I jumped ship on the third week, which is when they had us dispatchers actually work. For the first two weeks, we all sat in an office and talked and napped and ate our lunches. We got paid, though.
Originally the ICA trucks were marked with Florida Highway Patrol decals. Less than 6 months later, I saw one of those trucks...and the Florida Highway Patrol decals had been peeled off. All that remained were the ICA decals.
My typical day at the job consist of assigning out claims to adjusters. Billing invoices for the adjusters to get paid. Dispersing mail. Making sure the outsider adjusters are uploading their reports. Setting up claims.
My manager is a great boss and my co-workers were the best people you could of worked with.
The hardest part of my job is not getting the job done.
The most enjoyable part of the job is working with the people and knowing how to do my job correctly. I loved my job.
Electronic Technician (Current Employee) – Gilbert, AZ – July 13, 2015
They've had lay-offs, & cut all our hrs (off all Mondays in July= NO PAY!). Some co-workers OK, some not so OK. Supervisors very moody... don't know what we're gonna get each day. I'm the only Elect. Tech. there, so all testing, T/S, & repairs go thru me. I've been repairing production equipment when needed & available( prod 1st).
It a good company. Many changes taking place within.They demand hard work but make it worth your.
I worked many years with this company and it's basic people. They are reputable people and appreciate their workers.
I had health issues arise and had to be gone longer than expected. The company needed someone who could take time and update on certain courses. I was not able and another existing Assistant Vice President took my place. When was able to return we were unable to productively run department together. I worked as outside consultant for just over year after leaving.
