My experience at the Richmond office working in the incident response group was horrible. A highly toxic environment does not begin to describe it. The Management was immature and the old boys club covers up safety incidents, abusive to the staff, co-worker abuse is covered up, HR violations, etc. There’s a deeply-rooted, tight knit group in IR who bullies anyone they dislike. They also back-stab each other regularly. There’s a female IR ring leader and I’ve never seen anyone more aggressive and angry than that in a work environment. Anything goes, no consequence for this wolf pack. Usually people who are targeted just get run right off, and booted out of the company one way or another. This is a seriously scary place, without a joke. Management needs serious retraining from the top down. Basic respect and ethics are non-existent. HR is a joke.Answered 22 October 2019

Took me a month to get in. 1 week later I quit. Terrible training. Expect too much work for such little pay.
If you’re young, you can probably do the job if you like wearing heavy leathers( to protect you from fire and sparks), respirator ( for burning grease, coal & paint fumes) and go help others while waiting for more steel to cut.Answered 13 April 2019
