No stress
Documentation Specialist (Former Employee) –  Havelock, NCOctober 18, 2018
Alutiiq (Havelock) is a great place to work. It's a full-time, contractor position, but management does a great job in maintaining the same employees when a new contract is signed. Pay and benefits are great. If time off is needed for one day, you can work extra the other days of the week to obtain your 40hr/week. Very flexible! Environment was stress free and consistent. If you don't mind sitting at a desk all day (with exception to breaks and lunch) this place is great. Management and peers are helpful and eager to assist.
Pros
Pay, Flexible, Benefits, Consistent
Cons
Desk job

Horrible Company
Contractor (Former Employee) –  VirginiaSeptember 28, 2018
Bottom line -- you are a number. If there is a problem with the client, they will roll over on you. They are in it for the money and don't value what you bring to the table. Managers have minimal experience and no leadership skills. They are absentee parents and only become involved in your needs if forced. If you take a job with them, keep your resume polished and a box under your desk.

Horrible pay for Drivers
Driver (Former Employee) –  Gadsden, ALSeptember 23, 2018
As a Driver there I was required to use my CDL' S to transport students home. Some trips were 12 hours round trip. Such as Gadsden to Mobile. If you don't have a P Endorsement you have to get it and pay for it yourself. I was hired without it. No reimbursement. At $11an hour it Not Worth it. Cdl's are more valuable plus your traveling with lives. This job is a joke. Don't stress yourself out on it. And Management only wants the numbers up. They don't care about what problems the children have. Or who has to deal with them. They only want their jobs. Totally not worth the time. The entire system is a joke. Plus there are No Good Trades for the Children. They are the Losers at this place. Just Sad.
Pros
Great Home time.
Cons
Pay is Horrible

Contract with NASA Langley was a horrible transition. They treat people like trash.
Office Manager/Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Hampton, VASeptember 22, 2018
Contract supporting NASA Langley, transition from contract to contract was the worst that I have seen in years. NASA Langley made a HUGE mistake bringing a contractor because they came in at the lowest bid. What a way to treat humans!

Don't work there

Government contractor so no raises. If its for job corps, then be prepared to work with difficult students. There is lots of turn over. They think their staff is replaceable.
Pros
hard to get fired
Cons
students, pay

Bad management
Janitor (Current Employee) –  china Lake, CASeptember 12, 2018
Been with the company for a long time; hoping management get better. There is no backbone in the management dept. No communication, lot of talking however no actions been implemented. The H.R. need to look into the management dept. and correct the situation. No discipline on workers such as poor attendance and attitude. It unfortunate that the management is magnanimous and show no tolerance on attendance and behavior. Notice I never say the company is bad jut the management who need to be reevaluated if not have a new crew.
Pros
Benefits are decent; 401k is greater than most company can offer.
Cons
Management, low morality.

Lack of clear goals/leadership
Outreach and Admissions Counselor (Former Employee) –  MichiganAugust 23, 2018
Outreach and Admissions Counselor-goals not clear or constantly changing (often weekly), worked long, long hours/drove all over the lower part of the state to recruit students, lack of support/tools at remote sites to perform my job, waited 6 months to earn time off or benefits after hire, lack of initial training to do my job properly (hired for one job, three days later switched to Outreach and Admissions and received three days of training). I could go on.
Cons
No clear/changing enrollment goals or expectations, long hours, driving across the lower state to recruit students, lack of support or proper technology to do job off site at remote areas

Last resort!
Armed Security Officer (Former Employee) –  Mobile, ALJuly 15, 2018
The management went downhill shortly after the first year of starting at Airbus. The job requirements are not necessarily enforced due to the high turnover rate. Employees would quit left and right. If you enjoy tolerating favoritism or management not having your back, then this is the job for you. If you do work here, be careful who you become friends with at work and outside of work. The job is under a 5 year contract and is set to expire in 2019, if not already approved for a new one. The company is a yes company and will task its employees with meaningless task instead of focusing on the protection of the facility. Happy hunting!
Pros
Weapons and uniforms are provided for
Cons
No official lunch break, do not get relieved on time, call outs and no shows, and management.

Pay is terrible
Nurse (Former Employee) –  ChicopeeMarch 22, 2018
What they offer for Nurses is below market rate. Actually its degrading for a person who has went to school and received a degree. They speak about the great benefits however then pay rate is not comprable to the area or cost of living. You're expected to work 40 hours do extra work and get paid less.

Lack of Support, Bullies Welcomed
Manager (Former Employee) –  Chesapeake, VAMarch 17, 2018
Extremely poor HR. Employees allowed to bully others. Managers expected to keep it all quiet and sweep it under the rug. Lots of bad behavior, aggression and lack of professionalism. Managers expected to maintain performance without holding staff accountable. Took a lot of abusive - a whole lot of it. The job was ridiculous.
Pros
It was a job
Cons
Abusive enviroment

Decent place to work.
Security Officer (Current Employee) –  Mobile, ALMarch 15, 2018
Good place to work, pays $16 hr and the job works at a slow pace. Can do it for years with no wear and tear on the body. A lot of women work there so men our outnumbered, not to sound sexist.
Pros
$16 an hour in Mobile, Al
Cons
Not challenging; staying awake.

They should give their staff a better chance to hold on to their job better. Example either give them a write up of some sort ,or time off 3-5 no pay.
Cook's Helper (Former Employee) –  Albuquerque New MexicoMarch 13, 2018
Communication, lack of, being able to work with fellow co-worker. Problems with admitting or standing up for yourself to be heard out. If there's a problem and you take it to your management you would hope your management could straighten it out then if that doesn't happen you take it to HR and you hope that they can straighten out the problem not the answer of okay we're going to take care of it and then it doesn't get done. They say that Afognak ( Alutiig ) is family oriented. That's a joke. in family oriented. That's a joke.
Pros
Recognition is starting to happen.
Cons
If there is an incident of any kind. Too much paperwork for that incident.

Lesson Learned
HR Assistant (Former Employee) –  ChicopeeMarch 9, 2018
I was in HR and it was horrible. There were piles of paper everywhere in boxes, no organization and no training. The management team were mean and were quick to tell others your personal business.
Management got away with bullying other staff and the HR manager at the time was constantly rude to me. Couldn't speak to this person without snapping.
There were no raises or incentive programs for working 9 hours a day(sometimes longer).
Nothing was consistent and there was a huge turnover. The pay was low for the work you've done and never felt appreciated for the hard work.
This job could of been an amazing career move because of the mission an dc goals. The Company needs to focus on their employees as well as the students.
Cons

Security Police Officer (Former Employee) –  WVMarch 9, 2018
Don't waste your time. Management is poor. There is reason that their rating is so bad you aren't treated as an employee only a body in a seat. Job seeker beware.

Horrible place to work
Security Officer (Former Employee) –  Detroit, MIFebruary 27, 2018
They provide zero training. They have a bunch of unprofessional people working there. A bunch of people that are willing to do anything for money. Depending on your role you might have to be on call for 24 hrs. per day, which provides for no work life balance. Very high turnover rate. Employees are generally not happy here. This organization needs a complete overall, this could be a great program but the employees here are mostly in it for a paycheck. to work here it is necessary to care about children. Stay away from this company--total waste of time.
Pros
None-
Cons
A paycheck

Don't take their employees seriously
Data Entry Clerk (Former Employee) –  China Lake, CAFebruary 13, 2018
I had numerous issues and was not given any help, with the exception of one manager, who left before I even did due to the same issues (She is amazing). I had reported another employee for breaking numerous rules and was told they would do something about it (never did). Also was told by multiple people in management that we needed to look for a job outside of Alutiiq if we wanted to move up, get a raise, or even get an evaluation.

Bad place to work
Buyer (Former Employee) –  Tinker AFB, OKJanuary 29, 2018
This company took over a new contract. Was the subject of a 4-5 month strike for unfair hiring practices. Screwed up long term employees retirement.

Brought in new staff because current staff was on strike. Provided no training. Did not even have computers or phones ready for the new employee

Once current employees returned training was beginning to be provided but not in a constructive fashion.
Pros
Pay
Cons
