Customer Service Representative/Call Center (Current Employee), London, KY – October 12, 2014
The work itself is rather mentally exhausting. Provides good benefits and is flexible with attendance. Not a very stable position, constantly doing lay offs and rehires, doesn't really matter if you are full time or not.
Field Repair Team Leader (Former Employee), Ft. Lewis, Wasington – September 24, 2014
Pros: found employment right away
General Dynamics is a fun and educational place to work. I learned how to work well with others. I enjoyed the travel opportunities. Beneifits are very good compared to other companies. The hardest part is the time spent away from family but it is all worth it in the end.
I would love to return to this company or one like it.
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee), Lawrence, KS – September 24, 2014
Pros: understanding supervisors, incentives with earned time off
Cons: short breaks, drive
Answering calls about insurance plans to customers. I learned how to be more empathetic to ones needs and put myself in their shoes to realize it could be me in less than 30 years or sooner. I loved how my co workers and supervisors treated me because they worked as a family and was really understanding with situations. The hardest part of the job was – more... the drive from Topeka to Lawrence an with the weather its kind of hard with me previously being in a car accident. – less
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee), Waco, TX – September 24, 2014
Pros: occasional free pizza for lunch
Cons: short breaks and lunches, to many rules
This is not a good company to work for. The only thing to enjoy is the pay. The supervisor are unhelpful. Upper management is unbearable. The only thing that they know how to do it lie and threaten their workers.
This was one of the best companies that I ever worked for. My co-workers and myself worked as a team. We worked hard to provide the best vehicle that we could possibly build. Yes there were times of tension when things weren't going as planned; however, we all put our heads together to see the job through with superior results. The most enjoyable part – more... of my job was working with people who cared about the product that we put out. There was pride in what we achieved. Knowing that you can work with a strong team makes the work and job enjoyable. The hardest part of the job was losing my job. That had nothing to do with the company, it was just Government cut backs. – less
With the company relocating the development programs at Ladson, SC to Sterling Heights MI, the remaining staff and repositioned GD staff were very supportive. My knowledge of product design and of PTC Creo 2 supported the need to finalize designs and to support the need to generate documentation. The reward to have senior management recognize my efforts – more... and to assign difficult tasks which were time constrained showed my talent and versatility. My involvement lead to the redesign of the support structure for the control systems which managed a key new product feature and to design and integrate the interior armor protective shell.
The most enjoyable part of the job was the people I worked with. – less
Helping people to understand and choice healthcare
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee), London, KY – September 21, 2014
Pros: free healthcare for myself and my co-workers
Cons: sometimes having to tell people the cost of their healthcare
I normally worked a 8 hr shift and I would receive calls from people all over the USA that was interesting in learning about the Affordable Care Act and then I would do an application for them and help them enroll into a healthcare plan.
