Maintenance Technician (Current Employee) – Washington, DC – January 7, 2019
I love my job good benefits and good pay and good work comfortable management is good best uniforms and good skills co- work the best good to work with and they help in all type of way we just building more goal for the client
The office I work in has friendly people but it is incredibly quiet. You do whatever is given to you by a specific deadline and that is it. Nothing fancy to it. People will bring in food and celebrate birthdays and send cards out for other occasions. Benefits are decent but vacation time is earned a few hours for every 2.5 weeks.
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.
Janitor (Current Employee) – china Lake, CA – September 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.
Benefits are decent; 401k is greater than most company can offer.
Outreach and Admissions Counselor (Former Employee) – Michigan – August 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.
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
Armed Securityy Site Supervisor (Current Employee) – Detroit, MI – August 15, 2018
Site Supervisor for Coast Guard-Sector Detroit. Great team that works together to control access and provide armed security to protect all assets and persons entering the base.
Hand picked contracted security team in a very professional military setting. Best part of the job is greeting high ranking Officers and top US Government officials. Low point is never knowing if the next contract will be renewed.
Great pay, time off when needed, new equipment, and a close working relationship with the Regional Coordinator, who is on top of everything.
EMERGENCY MEDICAL TECHNICIAN (Current Employee) – Mobile, AL – December 27, 2018
The workplace is pretty good. Hours are fair and pay is competitive. The only problem is that managers are sometimes negligent. The two head bosses are good but unfortunately, there are a couple of managers that need to remember their place. Unfortunately, there is some micromanaging that goes on.
Janitor (Former Employee) – Ridgecrest, CA – May 8, 2018
while i worked for Alutiiq I learned what i like to work as a team member . I worked in a lab with eight other ppl and when one person couldn't get the job done we all helped out . But before we helped the person out we all have a route to do that consisted of cleaning offices, coffee rooms, bathrooms , kitchens . The hardest part of the job i think is finding a empty trash been when all the other are super full . the most enjoyable part of works is the coworkers and the customers.
Armed Security Guard (Current Employee) – Alexandria, VA – April 28, 2018
Alutiiq supervisor on this site doesnt seem to care much about his loyal employees who show up for work on time and never call off. Ive been on this site since october 2015 and went from 40 hours to 24 hours only 2 days a week with no discipline write ups.
Former Employee , Pay is good but not worth the stress
Office Support (Former Employee) – Cleveland, OH – February 12, 2019
After 5 years I decided to look elsewhere and take a pay cut, I needed to get away from the stress and poor management in the area that I worked. My supervisor was good but the manager of the area played favorites and everyone was afraid to say anything. There was no one else to talk to about the issues, the HR Manager is unreachable, he never answers calls or emails and there currently is not a Program Manager to talk to.
HR Assistant (Former Employee) – Chicopee – March 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.

Illustrator (Current Employee) – Cherry Point, NC – March 22, 2018
Unless you are a female, this company is very sexist and there is no career advancement for males. They don't care about their employees rather just care about the stock holders making more money and denying their employee's of a pay raise.
