since its a contract its only temporary as long as the Marine Corps deems it necessary to have them around. also since work is also along side Marines you must deal with their officers who have no idea what you are doing

Since day one, I have enjoyed my time with TYONEK and continue to enjoy! I am seeking self improvement with constant career development. The management here really cares for their people and display it too.

The very nature of a contractor at a government facility limits an employee's ability to progress and do more interesting work. There is the option of switching over to direct civil service but the pay cut would be too dramatic. No knock on the company. It is just the nature of contracting. I have a multitude of skills that go unused. I do enjoy the fact that I help repair the Navy's premier fighter jets but it does get frustrating at times. I have learned a lot about how aircraft structures and mechanical systems work. I do like the guys I work with both on the contractor side and the civil service side. We all work as a team to get the job done but as I said before the work itself does not begin to tap my skill base.
Great pay, fixing jets
No advancement, no ability to move around to different areas.
Aircraft Worker (Former Employee) – Kiln, MS – January 29, 2018
Really bad management exists here. The people are pretty friendly but I don't think site management cares that much for people. They just push us to get projects done early so they can pass on profits to site management. There is very little chance you will find yourself in a spot to have a fulfilling career. It's a dead end workplace. There are much better better places to work.
Its a job
Very little advancement, lack of privacy, low pay to give site management massive bonuses.
