Our Vision – Building Our Future ...
I worked at Tyonek Native Corporation full-time (More than 3 years)
Collaborative work environment. Flexible schedule and time off. Great benefits until 2016. Efforts are made to recognize employees hard efforts.
Senior Management changes are not well thought out, and turn over reflects this indecision. Some are great, some are not so great. Employees tend to get lost in the politics. Human Resources has too much influence on the business activities and in areas where they could be legitimate contributors.
Advice to Management
Stop trying to create a company identity and focus on maintaining realistic goals for growth through the employees. Employees are the solid and hardworking foundation of this organization.
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Tyonek Native Corporation (Fayetteville, NC) in May 2009.
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.
