SECURITY PROGRAM MANAGER (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – October 17, 2017
Challenging work environment, culture differences, a few employees never accepted full responsibility for their actions even though they had full knowledge of there standing CBA. I learned that everyone deserves a second chance to be successful in the work environment. At times the hardest part of the job was attempting to convince employees to come to work in order to be paid. The most rewarding part of this job was the realazation that a few employees finally got it and owned their mistakes and corrected their behavior.
Access Control Specialist (Current Employee) – Hanover, MD – October 11, 2017
This is a position that would be more suited to an individual just entering into the paid work force or as a part time job. Dealing with the clients can be challenging at times, but the work really isn't that hard. There is a high turnover rate at this position due to other companies paying much more and offering better benefits at this location.

Getting a job as an armed protective officer is the easiest way to get your clearance and open more doors for you in the IC community. I'd say no more than 3 yrs in this job and you'll be creaming to get out.
Associate Recruiter (Former Employee) – Chantilly, VA – April 20, 2017
The enjoyable part: The workload kept you busy I enjoyed the engagement with candidates. The recruiting Director is a very fair, decent, honest manager. who always listens to what his employees have to say and ideas. Its rare to find someone who holds that strong a support for their team. He went above what was expected of him to the entire company without being asked to. My managers i supported and Regional Managers were good people. I enjoyed working with them.
Environment is fast paced and busy. There is always change(which I love) if you not like change this would not be a good match for your personality.
What you learned: There was a lot of it depends on who you know at the company to provide advancement. My director did all he could in his power to make things happen I solute his efforts.
The hardest part: As in everything in life. Making everyone happy and get along.
The day began at 0600. The cubicles were approximately 4' wide and the were 8 of us in a row, back to back. It was very cramped. I worked the Call Center assisting applicants with completing their security clearances. I spoke with people from all over the world from cadets at Military Academies to Brigadier General's. There was some satisfaction achieved in knowing I helped someone complete a very long and tedious security application.
The management was not trust worthy. There was a lot of favoritism.
Being able to help someone with the security application.

Moral is usually low do to poor communication or lack of visibility from management. It would be great for motivation if there is constant talk on promotions or possible job movements. They take care of employees through money and benefits tho so i aint complaining
