Poor pay, interesting work, nice people
Associate (Current Employee) – Washington, DC area – 14 May 2019
Mostly nice people from the top down and GI does a lot of work in the community. However, they do not pay a living wage to entry level employees, even when you have over 60 college credits. Someone with no college experience should not be paid the same as people with college experience.
I'm a hardcore capitalist, but I also believe that no one working a full-time job should be unable to afford a meager rent and buy groceries. God help you if you're a single parent. I enjoy the work, but their pay is laughable for the amount of work that they want you to do.
As I said, they do a lot of good community work to help people unaffiliated with GI. They should pay workers a livable wage before funding other projects. Why would I give money to a stranger before I take care of my struggling family? They provide optional health insurance and other benefits but the health insurance deductible is over $200 (which they deduct from your paycheck), so your take home pay would be even more ridiculous.
Being the capitalist that I am, I have to move on.
Nice, polite people for the most part
lots of work, poor pay
