    HR sucks! wait six months to find out if you got the job! Benefits suck now too.

    Pros

    Co workers make you fill very welcome, flexible work hours, employee safety is a very big concern, benefits are very good

    Cons

    As normal your job is government contract dependent, management pushes there work off on, employees, receiving department does way to much work for being the lowest paid,

    Advice to Management

    cut the dead weight and hire in from the outside, department leads need to be held accountable, employees should not be doing there own yearly ratings.

  11. Changes needed, Aviation Safety Issues, all penciled in maintenance of Naval Aviation Support Equipment.

    Pros

    NONE at CSL Dyncorp Intl. CFT at the site feels they are untouchable, unprofessional attitude to people other than the higher ranks of the customer and tries to work every angle to get into that network to keep things the way they have been for years.

    Cons

    EL SALVADOR CSL NAVAIR/GSE CFTs Audit needed of records, tool-control, PMs, QA checks incomplete/Maint/safety IAW-NAVAIR.

    DynCorp Intl CFTs NAVAIR/GSE Maint/Support CSL-1 EL SALVADOR Aviation Safety Issues.

    The problem is that the same CFT has been on site for 14yrs and the maintenance is slacking with no expert QA/oversight. Zero maintenance only calls go out to ship me in another piece of equipment rather than perform repairs at the customer's location, shipping costs on the customer's budget are throwing red flags to the moon.

    Advice to Management

    Surprise Secretly Audit the site from Corporate's Higher Echelon of experts, CFT side has to many friends in lower network of management and leak any upcoming AUDITS to their buddy network.
