Poor management with a lead from the rear and not the front mentality
Logistics Technician (Former Employee) – Huntsville AL – May 9, 2014
The job duties I had to perform on a daily basis were absolutely the most enjoyable part of the day. I have no gripes or complaints about my job functions. In fact the duties performed were easy and not back breaking. But the leadership or the lack thereof, made coming to work an absolute horror story. From the first line supervisor to the end result boss, made it very hard to make it through a normal work day. A bunch of bullies with a good ol boy mentality. If you're in the good old boy club, then you're in for life. These managers are jokes and couldn't manage a one horse race. From bullying tactics to plain old harassment is how they (management) keep the workers from reporting them. When the management screws up, and it is often, they always most assuredly tell the government, that we are contracted to; that it is the workers mistake. Which in some cases I understand it is the workers fault in some situations. But a great leader will always take accountability for their subordinates.
Work duties in my case were as expected going in the field.

I would love to keep working for Tetra Tech. They are temporary employer because they perform Disaster recovery Safely and efficiently, then they move to the next disaster area to aid in recovery. I am in Northern Cali and Fire Recovery has been mostly completed in Mendocino and Sonoma Counties.
