Great Opportunities to interact with Sailors and improve upon their abilities to repair and maintain their equipment, Each day was exciting and rewarding in that a skill was imparted upon a group or individual that allowed for improvement in operations and reduction in maintenance and repairs.

Bilingual Customer Service Specialist (Former Employee), Lawrence, KSAugust 19, 2014
Pros: reliable, decent pay, good coworkers.
Cons: not flexible, no reward for working harder, no career advancement
very difficult to be promoted, a solid job for those who have strong attendance. They recognize attendance over quality of work. I did learn about the lending process with the Dept of Education. Left job because they were not flexible with scheduling and there were no opportunities for career advancement.

Corporate Director of Government Relations (Former Employee), Falls Church, VAAugust 11, 2014
Pros: wonderful products, corporate structure, colleagues and pay
Cons: shipyard visits in the winter
General Dynamics prides its self in going after and obtaining seasoned talent, particularly from our military. Because many had a similar background, similar accomplishments and similar work ethics, it was much like working on a college campus. I learned how to be a corporate professional while at General Dynamics. It held to strict standards that was – more... part of your daily work life. Management provided a great learning atmosphere because they were seasoned, accomplished and willing to show you how to do it. They understood leadership - what it was and more importantly, what it wasn't. Co-workers were a talented bunch that you would take home to have dinner with your family. The hardest part of the job was the realization that if you did not do your job well, others who were doing a great job may be laid off due to the lack of Congressional funding. The most enjoyable part of the job was my colleagues and working with the Abrams Main Battle Tank and the Stryker Family of Vehicles. – less

a fun work place
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee), Lynn Haven, FLAugust 8, 2014
I learned how to communicate with consumers when they were really upset. My co workers were great. Management was one of the best they were very helpful when we needed them. The hardest part of this job was trying not to give attitude to the consumer especially when you was giving them the right information but the consumer would not want to hear it.

Very intense, highly stressful job working with a challenging website and extremely frustrated and often angry people from across the U.S
Customer Service (Former Employee), Sandy, UTJuly 31, 2014
Pros: i learned a lot of new skills. the people i worked with. the benefits.
Cons: flawed website, poor training, they had a reduction of force for 600 of us
My day started out with letting my team know it was time to go onto the phones for the day. We had constant training and and updates on the changes in procedures for the Healthcare.gov website and signing up for the Affordable Care Act. We were required to learn how all the agencies interacted with each other and how to effectively explain to customers – more... how insurance works. We were rated both individually and as a team for quality, adherence and attendance. I then did my best to assist customers and agents in navigating and completing the application on a website that was not working properly. Our training was 40 hrs. and then we were on the phones. I learned to use soft skills (personal peace of mind techniques) to assist a very diverse group of people from across the U.S. I also learned a great deal about all aspects of the health and dental insurance industries, including medicaid and medicare. My coworkers were also a very diverse and awesome group of people and we helped each other all day everyday. I got skilled at managing my time and effectively assisting people. I learned to be more flexible because in a six month period we changed supervisors, teams, desks and lockers five times. The most difficult part of the job was working with a website that wasn't working properly for people who didn't want to have to sign up in the first place. We all needed more training. Communicating with consumers the results of their applications when they were not what they wanted to hear or when we knew there was an error because of the website and there was nothing we could do about it. The most enjoyable part of the job was when I could assist customers from start to finish and actually help them get insurance. I enjoyed educating people on how insurance works so they could make choices that were beneficial to them. I truly enjoyed the camaraderie we developed on all five of the teams I was a part of. I received a $500.00 bonus for maintaining a 92% or better score on quality, adherence and attendance for a six week period until my effective lay-off date. – less
