Supply Technician/Tool Room Clerk (Former Employee) – Fort Hood, TX – June 28, 2018
Working with M2 I've learned a lot about working hand in hand with management and fellow co-workers. Sometimes it could be stressful due to forecasted deadlines that were pending. But for the most part I enjoyed much of my time there. Over the years transitioning from Contract and remaining with your same co-workers you tend to become "Family" and the Workplace is like a "Second" home. I love all the bonds I've throughout the years. It takes, Teamwork Positive Attitudes and a Good Atmosphere,

A typical day includes having 1 or 2 flights on the schedule, but by the time the flights happen 5 or 6 birds end up flying so you have to jump through hoops to get all of the other birds ready to fly. However, it's not all bad, it's not bad. The people are great to work with and it makes the atmosphere great.

M2 pays well but management is average. There is no job security. An employee can be laid off every time the contract is up for renewal. If a new company gets the contract, there is no guarantee employees will be hired at the new company.
Normal days are fast paced and sometimes difficult.

Every day there are a million things you will be required to do between aircraft maintenance and hangar clean-up. You will be pulled off tasks to do different ones that become priority all of a sudden. It can be a fun environment however because of the people that work there.
Enjoyed my Job and learned a lot but was let go because I didn't have over 7 yrs with the company. Was in the process of learning how to paint aircraft. Was an aircraft mech for over 20 years and worked on UH-!H and then on UH-60.

Great place to work, great employees, great benefits, very nasty environment but is to be expected when you are refurbishing anything with an engine.Typical day at work starts at 7 and ends at 3:30, during that time you are working non stop to make a deadline, management is great, supervisors are ALWAYS willing to stop what they are doing to help when you get in a pickle.
Aircraft Structural Sheet metal Mechanic on UH60 (Current Employee) – Groton, CT – April 3, 2015
Nice facility ,everyone gets along good (National Guard employees and Contractors). This is contract work and I'm looking to find a more permanent job. The work is common Depot level Maintenance, but there's the occasional challenging job. Located at a small airport but there is a lot to do in the area, so there's plenty to do in your off time.

Purchasing/Supply Manager (Former Employee) – New Boston, Tx - Red River Army Depot – August 24, 2014
My 6 years at this company had its grass roots beginning with the advantage of having the ability to define and manage our responsibilities and departments to fulfill our requirements as a production-based government contractor focusing on refurbishing military tactical vehicles. My vision was to run the Purchasing and Supply Department lean and efficient - devoid of procedures that slowed the procurement process down resulting in not meeting production schedules. My first 4 years succeeded with this philosophy and included an ISO Certification as well. We were running lean and mean with low overhead. Upon the hiring of an accountant to the management team, overhead expenses increased as the site was forced to explore different operating philosophies. The once lean site soon became more cumbersome as more steps were introduced into the procedures all in the name of auditing possibilities - what ifs. We were now the company that we worked so hard to distinguish ourselves from per past negative experiences working for inefficient government contractors. This, combined with diminished production and departments not working together resulted in lost camaraderie and blaming each other for lost production and efficiency. I now appreciate my new career and despite missing a few of my ex colleagues, I am happy to have moved on.
Flexible work schedule for salaried employees.
Poor mentorship of Management Team. Favoritism at the management level.
