Perfect as a starter job, not as a career
General Clerk One (Current Employee) – Lees Summit, MO – January 21, 2018
Compared to most starter jobs, this is a good place if you are starting your career, but it's not really somewhere one wants to stay and make a career out of it. Don't get me wrong, this place has excellent job security, however the possibilities for advancement are few an far between.
The workplace culture on some teams can be described as high school really and the leads are nothing more than glorified babysitters and the supervisors can be ineffective when it comes to setting an example to follow, but overall, if you keep you head down and just show up and your work to the best of your ability, it's nearly impossible to be fired.
Management is scatterbrained and the clerks are treated like machines where the only thing that matters is production and quality and if the quotas are not met, management gets after the supervisors and the supervisors the clerks, and when work runs out, all that is left can be politely described as busy work.
Finally, as the company supports the government mission, it would stand to reason that workers here would be working closely with government employees, however it is the exact opposite as the government employees and contractors are kept separate and have no contact except in the area of IT. And if you think that this would be a stepping stone to a government job, think again.
