    Former Employee - Facilities/Maintenance in Charleston, SC

    I worked at General Dynamics Land Systems full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Very well structured with lots of online training courses to get one familiar and informed about policies within the company as well as the Government. Seemed there was a real potential for growth. Enjoyed working with a great bunch of people throughout the entire company in Charleston, SC It's the people that make it great.

    Cons

    One of the biggest challenges was to filter all the rumors flying around as to what the companies future looked like and not knowing how many would be laid off the next time around. Apparently, this is the reality of working for a government contractor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The decisions which you make, I certainly hope that your looking out for the people who really produce the end product and not just your management teams. How unfortunate that so many jobs were lost here in Charleston, only to be sent to Canada.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at General Dynamics Land Systems.

    Interview Details

    It went very smooth. I already had all the skills necessary to perform the job. Contacted by the hiring manager and he set up the interview with HR. If I had not had the inside knowledge to get this job, I probably would have had to compete with 100s of people who may have had some of the experience.
