Journeyman Contract Specialist Support Specialist, Temple, TX - April 25, 2017
I was employed with The Arcanum Group (TAG), on a Government contract. I was hired because of my experience as a former Department of Veterans Affairs Contract Specialist and familiarity with the V.A. contract software and requirements. As a contractor, I supported the contracting office in Temple TX. I was not advised as to what exactly my job duties were and was not given much direction. There were specific requirements for this contract but they were never related to me. The supervision did not maintain contact with me. In fact, I was often forgotten since I was the only contractor in the building. Overall, TAG did pay very well and were responsive whenever I needed assistance. As far as benefits, I earned only 3 hours per pay period for sick leave and personal time off. This did not allow much for going to doctor appointments or to accumulate PTO hours.
