Welder i (Former Employee) – Chesapeake, VA – January 9, 2015
Overall great work environment and co-workers. A typical day at work would consist of a job briefing, material sheets, teamwork, reviewed blueprints, followed the blueprints, and built model tanks for the military to practice on. The hardest part was gathering the materials needed for the project. All in all it was a very laid back and comfortable work environment. The most enjoyable part of the job was working alongside my co-workers.

a typical work day: various cable install,com equipment,computers,painting,wielding and,electrical.Its a constant learning curve.Theres no comfort zone.Management simply depends on who you work for on any given job.Co-workers are in the same as management depends on the crew.The hardest part of the is rework,no-shows,"i cain't see it from my house" attitude.THE MOST ENJOYABLE part was when the job is finally completed to the customers satisfaction.
Electrical Supervisor (Former Employee) – Newport News, VA – December 12, 2013
Large defense contractor with decent engineering support and a very poorly ran management team. Relies on a core of technicians and fills in manning requirements with unskilled labor leading to poor quality and huge cost over runs.
Program Analyst (Former Employee) – Virginia Beach, VA – October 17, 2013
VT Milcom is a small company that is still trying to find its way. Their management team is not capable of making the long term decisions that would keep the company growing and, most importantly, stable. I believe VT Milcom will be a company worth working for in about 5 to 10 years. The current management team will need at least that long to prove they can provide sound, stable management.
Staff Assistant III (Former Employee) – North Charleston, SC – August 13, 2013
The company was a fast paced, friendly work enviornment. I learned about training concepts and taught new hires training. Such as HIPPA, OSHA, and FPR APR travel paper work. I also input data and reviewed in Deltek time sheet information.
Field Service Engineer (Current Employee) – Jacksonville, FL – March 4, 2013
Gained experience on Naval vessels with electronics. A typical work day included installing cable, and building multi-pin connectors. The hardest part of the job was the structural part of the job; grinding, removing paint. I would say I enjoyed this job for the most part because I interacted with a lot of people and I like my coworkers.
CABLE RUNNER (Former Employee) – Virginia Beach, VA – December 11, 2012
Going to the desired site to begin cable installations. Follow and reading blueprints to complete job tasks. I learned to read blueprints and use time management. My co-workers here were great, we worked good together. I would say the hardest part of the job was redoing cables that someone else from another company put in wrong. The most enjoyable part of the job was being your own supervisor
A day at work included warehouse duties as well as shipping and recieving. Learned more computor skills, management was not very helpful. Co-workers often frustrated. Lack of training was hardest part of job. Learning some new skills was the most enjoyable part.
