Thin line between perception and reality
Electronics Technician (Former Employee) – Panama City, FL – August 21, 2018
Oh, I loved working at IAP at first. It offers a person almost all the opportunities that an Electronics Maintenance Technician could think of. But, then I started to see that Corporate had many shortcomings. First, there were hints of trouble in paradise when travel became difficult to get to the work location. Some company people were not accommodating and then I was forced to learn to do things on my own in a strange country...like find my way with no company interaction and having to use money that I later had to fight to get back over a very long time stretch. The company was so bad, they had many problems with getting people to fill their openings, so there were vacancies and even relocating of individuals. A lot of corporate shortfalls. As is the case, at times, throughout my career, I had a few co-workers that were difficult to work with. Well, again, I was to learn that the company had some problems. Seems that their ethics program is "lip service" only. They set up programs to satisfy government contract requirements, but when you try to report a problem they quickly get rid of you. They say that they want to work with you, but they won't let you relocate out of a bad situation; instead, they treat you so badly that they hope that you will resign...then, they "Blacklist" you. So, be forewarned about the practices of IAP; and don't just take my singular word...do some homework. (I wasn't the only victim; I know of at least 2 others that got bad treatment by them and no longer desire to work for them.)
Pay, travel, variety in work.
