    I have been working at Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission as a contractor (more than an year)


    The technology is being updated so it's a good time to be here and learn lots of new things


    Contract employees don't get any raises like the merit employees do. No work-life balance

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to provide more work-life balance. Test out a work at home plan.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Primary Manager didn't have time to stay for all the interview. It was clear they had already decided on someone else. Another interviewer asked usual questions, nothing unexpected. But they wanted a known persona, who would not rock the boat of the bureaucracy there, yet who could handle difficult managers resistant to quality improvements. A tough combination. Never heard any more in spite of the promise not to leave me hanging.
