    Pros

    Great company to work for! Really care about their employees and their growth. They provide almost unlimited training for those who want to better themselves. Pay is great!

    Cons

    Hiring process seemed a bit drawn out.. HR depts do not communicate very effectively throughout the hiring process. As with any DOD position your resume has to have certain key words in order to make the register, but once you figure that out its not bad.

    I worked at US Defense Logistics Agency full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good initial pay and benefits. job security

    Cons

    If your young noone will take you seriously. youll be treated as if you just enlisted in a branch and you know nothing. i was continually written up and eventually Terminated for what called continual "insubordination". Literally ruined my life. the work was easy and fulfilling but the average coworker was 50 and would just treat me with disgust because i was young with lots of ambition. totally made me look like some devious delinquent and upper managment was just concerned about making an "example". Union head was closed minded and got pretty much nothing accomplished for me. A big High School atmosphere with immature adults. Def not a place for a recent grad unless you get a white collar position. supervisor extremely micromanaged. you couldnt even go to the bathroom with first letting him know...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dont just listen to rumors, do actuall research before making final decisions.

    I worked at US Defense Logistics Agency

    Pros

    Having national holidays off is probably one of the best things about this company

    Cons

    No room for growth, everyone for themselves attitude, no teamwork, there are assumptions about what you are doing instead of asking that person to explain what's going on
