    Current Employee - Electrical Apprentice in Newport News, VA

    I have been working at Huntington Ingalls Industries full-time (more than 3 years)


    Being an apprentice people say we are kind of treated a lot better than regular hourly workers. I don't really think we are treated any different.

    I like working with my hands

    Only job I ever had that paid me to go to school so that's awesome.

    The pay is good especially being that I can into the company with no industrial experience.

    100% Tuition assistance program is excellent.

    Good benefits

    It's a cool job, where you get to be at the only place in the world that builds nuclear power aircraft carriers. That our Navy uses to defend our Country.


    Being a women you have to work two times harder than your man counter parts to be taking seriously. However it can be done, I did it, it just takes hard work.

    It's all about who knows you, people with family in high places often get promotion they don't deserve.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management should have more positive interaction with the tradesmen and tradeswomen.

    Positive Outlook
