Receptionist (Former Employee), King George, VA – March 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 – more... 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. – less
Receptionist (Current Employee), King George, VA – July 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 – more... 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. – less
EOSS (Current Employee), Fort Bliss, TX – October 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 – more... again. Moral is very low and employees feel like they are being targeted for termination. – less
Inventory Specialist/ Material handler (Former Employee), Fort Hood, TX – September 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 – more... transition. The hardest part of the job was saying good-bye when the lay-offs started happening. – less
