Got tasks done when asked
Automotive Helper (Former Employee), Fort Lewis, WAJuly 7, 2014
Pros: tool trucks would stop by
Cons: tool trucks would stop by
I would get there in the morning, clock in, got right to work and didn't mess around. Most co-workers were nice people and helpful even. I learned a lot in basic vehicle service and maintenance, and how jobs were outside of the military.

Janitorial Worker (Current Employee), Fort Lewis, WASeptember 10, 2013
Pros: listening to music when im driving
Cons: i dont care for the benifits being switched to a new one
A typical day for me is loading the company vehicle with all the cleaning supplies that will be needed. Then the rest of the day cleaning whatever buildings that are on my list for the day. CO- workers are pretty good, I would have to say the hardest part is when there is some days that you just feel rushed. Most enjoyable part would have to be, I've got my own route to handle.

Mechanic (Former Employee), Fort Lewis, WAApril 23, 2013
Pros: supporting the soldiers
Cons: traffic on lewis
Keeping the Army's equipment up and running was the rewarding. We did preventive maintance and repaired needed items. The hardest part of the job was seeing the employees that didn't care about what they were doing and cutting corners. I learned how to be a better mechanic. The most enjoyable part of the job was seeing the soldiers being able to use the equipment we fixed and maintained for them.

Diesel Mechanic (Former Employee), Fort Lewis, WAMarch 22, 2013
Pros: steady hours and schedule
Cons: poor advancement and job security
Skookum was a contract assignment. The work was delegated and distributed proportionately. Performed service in accordance with schedule. Company allow us to work swing or day shift with some overtime. Had all equipment and tools to perform various diagnosis and repair to military vehicles and equipment. Saw very little advance, compensation, or benefits. Contractor very poor in decision process and laid off people based off disability, preference, and not performance.
