General Laborer (Former Employee) – Portsmouth, VA – January 14, 2019
From my experience at Venture Dynamics takes care of their employees. They would assign us to our work area, walk us through what they wanted us to do to get our job done and let us do our work. The job was pretty laid back, there isn't really a hard part to the job if you love hands on work.

Receptionist/HR Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Bremerton, WA – April 18, 2018
When I was hired I was under the impression that we would be really busy once the ship yard picked up. I was happy I was hired during the slow time so I was able to learn as much as I could before we got busy. After my first week my manager who hired me was fired. There was only 3 of us in that offices so it dropped us down to two people. The owner reassured us that our jobs would be safe and continue to work. The last day of my second week we got a call saying that he was closing the Bremerton office and to pack up our stuff and leave.
Insulator Helper (Former Employee) – Norfolk, VA – April 5, 2018
everyone had a meeting every morning. I learned how to make templates for insulation projects. Management was fine but sometimes hard to find when you need them. workplace culture was good we worked hard it just wasn't enough to last the day. The hardest part of the day is staying awake waiting on someone to give you something to do. The most enjoyable part of the day is getting the job done so you could start something new the next day.
