I have been working at Aqua Star full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Good supervisors, not top heavy. Provide gym allowance and parking allowances/bus passes. Good medical and dental benefits and 401K matching.

Cons

Sometimes have to work on holidays get another day off instead of overtime. No advancement opportunities. In IT sometimes have to work from home in the evening.

    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at Aqua Star as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    The work environment is fairly relaxed and the pay is average. Free soda and beverages in the break area.

    Cons

    The expectations placed on employees are not always clearly defined or change over time to something that employees are not in agreement with.

    Advice to Management

    Set clear expectations from the beginning with employees. If those expectations change, make sure you follow through with communicating them as employees may not be on board with them. It's better to find a new job than to have conflict over expectations that you don't understand.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Location: Near Pike Place. Bus pass and parking reimbursement, fairly good insurance

    Cons

    This position is still one I think about, months after I have left - Due to a number of different scarring experiences related to both the people that work at Aqua Star and the work itself. This is a highly blue collar company and environment - minimal corporate and project management experience required - very long hours (despite its advertising) and upper management is not professionally running this company. Along with that, no one here is pleasant to work with. My professional intuition drove me to make a much better career decision and really, really hope that you have other options than to join this company.
