I worked at TRI-COR as a contractor (Less than a year)
Because this job was working on a government contractor with the US Air Force, I got to work with important applications - development, testing, and production - with Oracle 11g, 12c, and SharePlex, which allowed me more experience.
While on a 6-month right to hire contract, I was told in the fourth month that they were going to hire me. However, from then until they let me go, they never once told me what they were going to pay me or the benefits I would have, even though I asked several times to find out...
Advice to Management
While I realize that the government has reduced the amount of fees for contracts, it is important for employees to be taken care of well. When you have contractors come on board, you should let them know right away what you plan to pay them, if you decide to hire them. Frankly, every business I've worked for in the past has done that -- I don't understand why your company didn't... You should also consider that in the fourth-month of a six-month contract that other recruiters start contacting folks who are on contracts and try to obtain them. While you were trying to get me to state how little I would take in wages, there were recruiters who were offering lots more money -- in the Greater St. Louis Area, most Oracle Database Administrators make $100K per year or more -- and you wanted to pay less than $80K??? With that low set of wages, how do you expect to keep or hire folks? Seriously??? Lastly, since I've been let go, I've talked to a number of Tri-Cor employees. Many don't like their low wages. And they are quietly looking for other positions. With that happening what will happen in the near future? My guess is you are going to have a big problem keeping employees and contractors -- and that will negatively affect your position with the government, as well as add much more to do for the few folks who remain with you.
