Great possiblities, lack of leadership.
Recruiter (Former Employee), UtahMarch 9, 2015
Pros: relaxed atmosphere
Cons: leadership is non-existent.
They have great potential, but they lack leadership. Potential Issues are not dealt with, but left alone. One or two real leaders could take that company from 4th in the county to 1st.

Flood Relief Volunteer
Flood Relief Worker (Former Employee), Des Moines, IAFebruary 28, 2015
VISTA is now known as Americorps. It is a great organization that allows young people the opportunity to serve their country in a different capacity than the military. Community service is just as admirable and important as military service. I am glad to have served as a VISTA.

Producive Workplace--always busy
Diesel Locomotive Remanufacturing Team Leader (Current Employee), Roanoke, VAMarch 15, 2014
Pros: bonus, overtime
Rebuilt diesel locomotive train engines--specifically GE and EMD. Within two years, I became the Engine Shop Team Leader. As the Team Leader, I consistently met Vista’s engine quota each month. In order to meet the monthly quota, I managed inventory, set daily goals for employees. Due to increasing demand, I launched first and second shift, planned, coordinated, and managed each shift’s production. Accepted responsibility for overseeing the locomotive testing and results at third party site. Ability to interpret and maintain documents such as procedure manuals, blueprints, maintenance instructions, schematics and drawings. Significant knowledge of mechanical maintenance. I enjoyed working hard and every challenging task. There was ample overtime available.

Unfortunately, the engine contract was not renewed. The engine shop closed. As a result, I was laid off. I miss Vista. Vista was a good company.

Customer Service Rep (Former Employee), Atlanta, GASeptember 11, 2013
Working in customer service has been helpful in learning new techniques to use both while helping customers and in everyday life. For instance, using a smile in my tone of voice and presenting good body language helps show customers and regular people that you are listening and that you do care about the issues at hand.

Productive and great position for those looking to gain insight on administrative duties and also helping fellow Americans.
Volunteer In Service To America (Former Employee), Boston, MAJune 21, 2013
Pros: free lunches, travel, camaraderie, experience
Cons: limited span of work
Typically a VISTA associate works for an assigned firm and once placed you work with whoever the hiring manager deems needs more outside help. Essentially learned the guidelines to working in a small-medium office as well as learning about community initiatives. The best part of the job was knowing that I was helping further a noble cause and the intangible rewards that came from this.
