Daily I have come to work only to sweep a warehouse, shovel snow, rake leaves, or to build up racks to take them down in two weeks and rebuild them again in the same location. There was no structure. Employees would leave for hours and get paid for the entire day. There were not enough computers to work with every employee.
Public Affairs Specialist (contractor) (Current Employee) – San Diego, CA 92136 – April 1, 2018
I work as an independent contractor working with the Department of Defense. I work my 40 hours per week and submit weekly time sheets. Pay has never been late, only negative to this job is that as a contractor there is no guarantee that I will be able to keep this job - defense contracts come and go.
Full benefits are deducted from salary - means less $ than expected
Engineer (Current Employee) – Baltimore, MD – August 2, 2017
Not given the tools to do the job. They are working on it. Not a consistent work environment. People came and went on a regular bases. No real game plan, didn't know any details about how to use Company systems.
Freedom to do my job in the most efficient way possible
Military Traffic Inspector (Current Employee) – 17 US military bases & 9 army ammunition plants – March 25, 2013
I was given advanced notice of my work schedule for each month. It was left for me to plan how & when to complete the job assignments for the month. I planned my work in such a way as to be done as efficiently as possible with time left for additional work if needed. They didn't stand over my shoulder to see or try to pressure me. I always completed my assignments 100%; even did additional work to make up for siignments not completed at other locations. They knew I would get the job done. I liked my job because I could plan my home activities around my work schedule.
freedom to work at my own pace, no pressure.
no healthcare benefits, work shortened by military budget cuts by government.
