Quality assurance representative (Former Employee) – Yuma, AZ – October 5, 2018
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
Aircraft Sheet Metal Mechanic/Machinist (Current Employee) – Jacksonville, FL – February 28, 2018
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.
This company is okay to work for. The staff is friendly and the benefits are satisfactory. The upper management at the corporate level is satisfactory. The management level at the construction office lacks the experience to run the division properly.
Director of Operations Aircraft Corrosion Control (Former Employee) – Robins AFB, GA – February 9, 2017
Busy place with high turnover adequate pay for responsibility. Putting in a lot of hours each week. Security manager needed to be removed well before he was and business development office is an overpaid out of control and useless organization within the company. They drive up the operating and overhead costs preventing contract bidding to be competitive. The people who work in the local office are amazing. The command chain structure should have been logistical anf based on locality but instead you answer to a supervisor that has never met you and has no idea what goes on each day. Upper management and business development do not talk to each other and communication above middle level management is poor. The support personnel are some of the best people I have ever worked with.
high middle management turnover, very high upperlevel management turnover (ecxept a chosen few)
Pay was below average and Mangement didnt have a clue
BUYER I (Former Employee) – Madison, AL – January 3, 2017
The overall work environment was not bad. There were some really good people you worked with. Management was severely lacking and did not know how to lead by example. Supervisors and managers played favorites.
Confidential (Current Employee) – Madison, AL – August 20, 2016
Disorganized Government Contractor that is ran like a Commercial Company. Majority of employee's are inexperienced. Management meetings are a joke. Program Managers etc. do not have a clue on how to actually run Government Contracting Programs. Very surprised they win contracts and have not been closed down. Good ole boys network. Preferential treatment to longtime employee's, instead of skill level or work ethic. Majority of employees to include management are more consumed with gossiping, and backstabbing then they are with helping a company to excel. Benefits are terrible and too expensive. Overworked, underpaid and expected to work 50+ hours with no overtime, job security or compensation benefits. Infrastructure is a disaster, very unprofessional workplace.
Free coffee, decent bathrooms.
Unprofessional atmosphere, terrible benefits, unorganized, very cliquey.
Solid company; just disorganized & 60-84 hour work weeks
Machinist (Former Employee) – Madison, AL – October 27, 2015
Decent benefits, BC/BS insurance $25/pay period for single. Can't beat that. Could have more organization in process management instead of 'winging' it to get the job done. For production employees, mandatory 60-84 hour work weeks, 6-7 days a week is quote 'normal' for this place. Not good if you have a life outside of work. If you like overtime, and lots of it, this is the place for you. If not, keep looking.
Lunches provided occasionally, good health insurance & 401(k)
Long hours, 6-7 day work weeks, short breaks, lack of organization
