Asset Visibility Logistician/Data Analyst (Former Employee), OCONUSApril 18, 2015
Pros: Some good people
Cons: Micromanagement
I worked with a great bunch of people and had a great team manager. Upper management tended toward the micro-management philosophy. I took a pay cut when this company assumed the contract I was on.

Property Accountability Specialist (Former Employee), Fort Bliss, TXFebruary 19, 2015
This company took over our old contract, they kept many of the old employees. The benefits were not as good, and they pay was decreased. But it was a government contract, so they won the contract and we continued to work as normal, just without the previous benefits.

Outstanding Company. Good Management
Supply Technician (Current Employee), Bagram, AfghanistanOctober 17, 2014
A work day in Afghanistan is a full day; 12 1/2 hrs
I have learned to live in austere conditions associated with the military.
Management takes care of their people.
My co-workers are close because of our assignment.
The hardest part of the job is not having a bath tub, being so far away from the United States and not being with loved ones at the end of the day.
The most enjoyable part of the job is the laughter shared amongst co-workers. Some stuff people say and do is actually funny at times.

Job security in warzone with substandard pay for danger potential.
INVENTORY MANAGEMENT SPECIALIST (Current Employee), Alexandria, VA/Bagram, AfghanistanMay 6, 2014
Pros: free meals and housing.
Cons: short breaks, long hours and, no days off.
A typical day, 7 days a week, is working from 07:00 to 19:30 everyday! I learned more about the military supply structure and how to better manage my time and life structure. Management is OK yet could be much better when it comes to supplying people with the necessary tools, supplies and time off. Co-workers are OK, Supervisor is great! The hardest part of the job is the monotony of doing the same task each day for 12 hours. The most enjoyable part is interacting with my co-workers.

fun place to work.
Receptionist (Former Employee), King George, VAMarch 24, 2014
Pros: nice atmosphere and people to work with.
Cons: 40hr, when i started it was 32.
best description is it was like going from home to home. I loved my job and doing for all the employees. I greeted customers, arranged conference room scheduling, got their lunches and sometimes breakfast. Did all the FedEx lables, pick up arrangement and insurance notification. I did all supply inventory and ordering.
Got along with all the managers and made helpful suggestions how to cut cost or what would benifit the company. I have a secert clearance.
Most enjoyable part of my job was helping my fellow employees in any way i could.
I am very dependable, even showed up in ice storm when no one else was there!!
I would like to find a nice atmosphere like SENTEL on a part time or 32hr week.

Great company until all the layoffs.
Receptionist (Current Employee), King George, VAJuly 8, 2013
Pros: pleasant work conditions
I am always at work and love my job. It breaks my heart the company is laying off so many of us. I do all the shipping labels and set up pick up, also keep track for future shipments. Receive and deliver all faxes.
I order all supplies for vending machines as well as general office needs. I have a seceret security clearance. Get along with all my co-workers.
I truely look forward to coming to work every day and have not missed any work except for mediacal appointments. In the 11 years i have been here i have never taken a vacation!!
I am very reliable and my previous supervisor said i was an asset to this company and that they were lucky to have a responsible to greet the clients, arrange lunches and reserve conference rooms.

No job security here! Very poor employee moral.
EOSS (Current Employee), Fort Bliss, TXOctober 1, 2012
Pros: you got a job. pay isnt bad.
Cons: have to wait a year for vacation. employees wont see benefit dollars if covered by someone else.
There is no moral or job security at this company. When the company bidded on the contract, they bidded too low and realized that it was too low. Now they are trying to find ways to cut corners like cutting employees before their anniversary date so they don't pay out vacation and then bring the employees back on a different contractor to start over again. Moral is very low and employees feel like they are being targeted for termination.

Great work environment and good upper management
Inventory Specialist/ Material handler (Former Employee), Fort Hood, TXSeptember 2, 2012
Pros: independent work environment and close knit teams.
Cons: contract work is not stable and one never knows when a job will come to an end.
I really enjoyed working for Sentel. The work environment is great. Everyone got along well and supported each other. The most enjoyable part of the job was baing able to perform a hand back to the customer, of their products at 100%. It's a good feeling to not have any product come up missing and the customer is satisfied
that all went well in the transition. The hardest part of the job was saying good-bye when the lay-offs started happening.
