Large vision from the executive and board levels. With a growing national company, there is a real need for bringing on new capacities or build your own. Tyonek really does put an effort to build community.Cons
With all communities, you end up dealing with politics. People from the village are mostly family some how, and others get included as part of the Tyonek Native Corp. Family. Some times family is a lot to deal with. Most of the time, they are good.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Keep your good direction, but take effort to discuss the details in needs of the company.RecommendsNeutral OutlookApproves of CEO

- Application Details
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days – interviewed at Tyonek Native Corporation in May 2009.Interview Details
Tyonek is a Native American Corporation that has a variety of military base admin contracts. They have multiple partner companies it seems in each area and I was interviwed by one of them (in all honesty, it was so complicated that I could not totally follow the structure) for a job at Ft Bragg managing ongoing work to perform small construction projects or repairs.
After being called by a recruiter with promises of "managing all the construction at Ft Bragg" (yeah right), then speaking to one person on the phone who said my salary range was in teh ballpark they were looking for, I interviewed with someone else on site, who of course could not do any negotiating or even let me know what they may or may not actually offer me. I then spoke with the people who I would actually work with and it all seemed like every story you could imagine about civilian employees of a military base. Lots of levels of management and paperwork.
I was offered the position after a few more days for maybe 60% of the low end of my range and the offering manager said htey could not do any negotiating at all, this is what the requisition was approved for. I politely declined the offer. Funny thing is another recruiter called me a couple of months later with the same "manage all the construction at Ft Bragg" line.Interview Questions
