Warehouse/Delivery Driver (Current Employee) –  New Berlin, WIAugust 6, 2017
The work is easy and a lot of it is self directed. Benefits are ok and for the most part you are treated well. The company usually runs a lean crew so you usually end up doing 3 people's job over the course of a week
Pros
No work on weekends
Cons
Poor raises

Good company when there is work available
Senior Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Norfolk, VAJuly 12, 2017
In this particular industry one must be constantly watching what is going on especially in Washington. Your job is based on policy. This makes jobs in this industry shaky at best. Best summary...feast or famine. Plan accordingly.
Pros
There is a fair wage to be made.
Cons
Very unstable when it comes to getting contracts. Feast or famine

Very busy, you have to multitask.
Purchasing Buyer (Former Employee) –  San Diego, CAMay 17, 2017
There were good days and bad days, but had more bad days than good. Too many meetings, couldn't get things done. When I asked to apply for another position, it was a farce, they already had someone for that job. If I wanted to move, I could but had to stay in purchasing. No matter how much you worked, it was never enough. Got too stressed, couldn't sleep, started affecting my health.
Pros
Liked most of the employees. Time off at xmas
Cons
Too much wotk, not enough people

Material Chaser/Warehouseman (Former Employee) –  San Diego, CANovember 18, 2015
My typical day is processing material and delivering.

What I have learned is time management and priorities what needs to be done first.

Management has been very reasonable except one which is hard to get work done when questions arrive is always greeted with attitude and all we need is support with information only this person has.

My co-workers are hard working individuals but when given opportunity they will get occupied with other things just to appear busy.

Hardest part of my job is when we have more material than employees to handle the workload.

When our team works together to get things done that would almost seem impossible to get done in one day.
Pros
Lots of work when receiving a goverment contract.
Cons
Overworked and dangerous work.

Awesome environment with plenty to learn and advancement possibilities
Rigger (Current Employee) –  San DiegoApril 22, 2015
Overall a great place to work. The intended work environment and job security through the company's policies on the fair treatment of the employees is comforting, but hard to enforce and live up to.
An amazing learning environment and wide open for lateral and forward movement.
Fairly steady work and mixes well with home life. The uppermost management are very safety and people oriented.
Pros
Paid holidays, Employee appreciation, benefits, hours, overtime opportunity
Cons
Speaking specifically of the rigging dept., a toxic and distrustful work environment encouraged by current management.

This company underpays engineers
Structural Engineer (Former Employee) –  San Diego, CAAugust 20, 2014
This company was a disaster. The management picked on people that took five extra minutes for lunch, without taking into account that regularly most people instead to leave at 3.00 pm left at 3.45 pm.
The athmosphere was not friendly.
A salary for an engineer with 20 years of experience was $ 86,000/year, which is quite low.
Pros
None
Cons
