Material Handler (Former Employee), Auburn, WA – November 20, 2013
Pros: opportunity for research
Cons: no flexibility for family
Typical day started at 5 am and could it by 3 or 4 pm and there were many mandatory work day on Saturday. Getting accurate and consistent stream of information was difficult for many reasons and the mission could change within a matter of hours. The hardest part was that I had little or no time available for myself or my family. The most enjoyable part – more... was the opportunity to do research. – less

Pros: it really played well to my skillsets.
Cons: as a contractor, no benefits and no job security.
One of the most enjoyable work environments I've worked in. It was essentially self-paced so once you learned what you needed to accomplish the work you could pick up the ball and run. The supervisor, lead and my trainer were all very patient and helpful.
Excellent company to work for with good benefits and compensation.

Pros: breaks, managers, healthcare, pay
a typical day at work for me day always started with a team meeting , then we moved on to the phones to answer questions about medicare.

For me the hardest part was not being able – more... to do more for the beneficiaries. – less
Field Material Control Supervisor (Former Employee), auburn, wa – October 13, 2013
it was ok and benefits were great but managment is not with it. Managment is old school and does not want to change the fact they sweep things under the rug for some but not others if your not a yes man they will get rid of you some how.

Pros: playing games during lunch.
Cons: when your plane had a spur of the moment test flight.
Work was never boring. I learned how to program computers which was one of the college courses I was taking. Management was great to work with. The hardest part of the job was listening to planes pull "G's" and listening to the pilot when they were doing this. The most enjoyable part of the day was watching history (speed of sound being broken and watching – more... the space shuttle flying on top of the 747 for test flts). – less
