Overall was a good experience from the job assessment to placement for the disabled.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

ProsFinding an employer that would actually hire a person with a physical disability. I think the benefits were pretty darn good, but unable to compare them to other industries. Employees and supervisor were supportive in every way from training to work conditions. Friendly atmosphere. In hindsight after seeing what is out there now for a similar position the pay was excellent.

ConsThe job demanded someone had to be there 24/7 and 365 days a year. So on occasion you had to work graveyard that is tough. And had to be there despite how bad the weather was when a normal business could close down. Dealing with snow is tough for the disabled. Unfortunately as the economy declined there were cutbacks to staff and work became busier and if anyone was out sick there was no backup as before. Worst of all the two bases became a joint base the army took over support operations and eliminated our entire department.

Advice to Senior ManagementThat is tough to say perhaps they could have offered immediate more class training and job placement again. But those are covered by the Dept of Voc Rehab meaning you had to sign up with them again to get the process started and it all took months to accomplish.
