cater (Current Employee) – Washington, DC – January 11, 2016
A typical day would start with classes and doing homework. After that I go to work at my schools catering company. The job has made me aware life and the meaning of hard work. Learning how to deal with people and how to make the best of anything is one of skill I truly learned how to develop while working at my school. The most enjoyable part about school and working for them is I get prepare the catering food and also learn how to run events and how the process managing myself and how to save time in order to get things done quick.
BMET Instructor (Former Employee) – San Antonio – October 16, 2015
Workings as an instructor was the most rewarding job. After 4 years with no pay raise it was time to move on. LSI refused to negotiate pay or benefits after winning the contract. So long story short the expectation was to continue working under the same conditions as before. Working at METC is awesome and being an instructor is great. I can't say the same for LSI whom manages the contracted instructors. LSI does not care about hiring and retaining quality instructors they simply want bodies to fulfill the position so they don't default on the contract.
No incentives, no pay raise, low morale (contractors under LSI only)
The best part of working at Logistics was driving on the road with noone over your head telling you what to do.

Freight Specialist I (Former Employee) – Redstone Arsenal, AL – June 18, 2014
Very steady, fast paced work. How to juggle a lot of work and answer phones, file work away, pay bills, and enter data into database after shipment was completed. The management and co-workers were somewhat friendly and professional. Stay to yourself and get work completed mostly. Making sure the trucks came in on time and delivered goods on time. When and if we had time some co-worker to co-worker interaction and every now and then a cookout.
management lacking in communication and interaction with employees.
Worked from 8:00 pm until 6:30 am, pulling parts for a vehicle manufacturing assembly line, temp position, never can pull fast enough (even if I had run out of orders to fill). Co-workers all easy to work with, Managers were driven by requirements of line, and numbers generated by 1st shift. Best part of job was it was like getting paid to go to the gym and work out for 10 hours.
Productive being the mediator between internal and external customers.
Expeditor (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – March 6, 2014
Great company to work for. Great workplace environment that emphasized great unity within the group. Great work life flexibility. I learned a lot of great skills and knowledge of the industry. Management was very accommodating in helping resolve any issues our group faced. Hardest part would be the fast paced different variety the job offered. I loved it, but if a worker is not used to working under such conditions it can present some problems. The most enjoyable part of my job was dealing many different people on the daily basis. I felt my contributions to the group played a vital role in our every day work flow.

Inventory Specialist (Current Employee) – Arlington, VA – February 13, 2013
Our day starts at 0630-1500. The environment varies from building to building. We all adapt very quickly and perform our duties. I learned how to d-militarize paperwork and preparation. The various ways to identify and verify products. Do a complete inventory of buildings from one end to the other. Management changed about every month. Management allowed us to continue our process and adapt as needed to complete the job. As any business, taught each other to be the most proficient. The hardest part of the job was taking three weeks off during Christmas without pay. The most enjoyable part of the job was taking new people and becoming an efficient machine.
meeting those in the warehouses and working together.
knowing the job is almost complete and we all will be going our separate ways.
Inventory Specialist (Current Employee) – Chesapeake, VA – November 12, 2012
This company is a temporary job for me, they call me when they work at various locations close to me, the pay is very good but the work is not guaranteed and the locations were not a constant. my co-workers were very knowledgeable and very helpfully. a general work day consisted of counting small pieces of hardware and recording the data. it was monotonouns work to say the least although it was a quiet and a very calm work environment.
high pay, two 15 minute breaks and 30 minutes for lunch, office environment
