Customer Service (Former Employee), Chester, VA – October 30, 2014
A day at this job went by pretty smoothly when you just do your job, i learned good communication and computer skills here at this job, the management wasnt very good but it was ok, i got along with the coworkers there but they were mostly women, the hardest part of my job was talking all day almost non stop, the enjoyable part was that it was a chill – more... relaxing sit down job – less
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee), Winchester, Ky – October 26, 2014
A typical day at General Dynamics is overall laid back, it can be stressful but it is a good place to be employed. I've learned quite a bit, such as health care, NGD (next generation desktop), how to handle crisis situations, etc. All of my coworkers are great and the management team is overall pretty good. Most everyone there is willing to help you – more... in any way they can. My coworkers are the most enjoyable part of this job. – less
Very fun place to work and allowed for good travel.
Stryker Vehicle Instructor (Former Employee), Fort Lewis, WA – October 26, 2014
Pros: good benefits and pay.
Cons: sometimes it feels as if management doesn't listen to possible improvements.
Typical day at work was spent honing skills as a instructor or teaching soldiers on the Stryker wheeled combat vehicle. This is where I certified as a instructor using the Instructor Trainer Course through the Army. My co-workers were the utmost professionals and we always shared information and made sure the soldiers were trained to standard. I really – more... enjoyed all the travel that the company afforded me, both in the U.S. and abroad. – less
Great support from Supervisor. Great working climate.
Tier 1 Tech Support (Current Employee), Hampton, VA – October 24, 2014
Pros: supervisor support
Cons: limited breaks
It's a pleasure to go to work at General Dynamics. Every day provides new challenges which our team approach with enthusiasm and competence. ATM SONET CAN/WAN degradations, issues and outages provide many opportunities for our team to perform discovery and analysis. It's great to have the opportunity to grow within General Dynamics!
Configuration Manager / Data Manager (Former Employee), Fairfax, VA – October 21, 2014

24 X 7 operations center This was a new contract/effort for the DoD and GD Flexible hours based around core hours Dress code relaxed Hardest part of job was getting CM established from ground zero and getting all responsible parties on board
Stability is not something assosiated w/ this company
Senior Technician (Former Employee), Tallahassee, FL – October 20, 2014
Pros: they pay for safe shoes
Cons: low pay rate after contracting company takes their share, only temporary employment
They hire on a lot of employees when they have plenty of work, they are quick to "release" employees when work is completed. A well known name in defense but as an American employer, they are no longer a stable and fair company to work for. Company uses outside contractors to fill positions fast. The contracting company quickly fills positions and takes – more... about half of what the employee gets paid. If you get offered a position, remember its likely only temporary. I'm not a job hopper, but with so many companies requiring contracting employees, you suffer with outrageous ins premiums, and your salary being halved with a contracting company. I would not recommend working here unless you are just looking for seasonal employment. – less
Materials Liason/Manager (Former Employee), Anniston, AL – October 16, 2014
Pros: challenges, manager, pay, co-workers
Cons: returning damaged parts
I was a contractor with GM Defense through London, Ontario, Canada before General Dynamics bought them. I was the materials liason/manager for the materials coming from London. I managed the inventory and was responsible for returning the damaged parts. I had the greatest manager in the world! All of my job was enjoyable! I stayed extremely busy, it – more... was challenging and I got to use my talents, skills and knowledge. – less
An excellent place to work and a lot of excellent supervisors
Quality Control Specialist (Current Employee), Sandy, UT – October 15, 2014
Pros: having paid holidays and having lucheons with co-workerss
Cons: short breaks and 30 minute lunches
Monitor calls through the Market Place to ensure CSR are following protcol when siging a client up for Medical Care. I would also have to go on the phones and answer calls from callers, research accounts, enroll clients in health care system. I learned a lot about how to write a brief quality review, key phrases to listen for when monitoring a call, – more... correct a CSR on a live monitor. Management was very cooperative for a company just starting up in July 2013, because everybody had to help each other out because we came from all different backgrounds. Co-workers were great, always trying to help each other out. Hardest part of the job was developing and adjusting scripts on a daily basis and getting use to the key words to review scripts when on a call with a client. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with management, co-workers and having a good relationship with everyboedy. – less
