I would rather have bamboo under the fingernails than have to work for them again.

I worked for them in one form or another for about 5 yrs.
If there is anything good to say about them in their present incarnation, it escapes me.

If you wanna work for them, you should probably get to one of their sites as a contractor (Bartlett has a lot of work w/ WGI). The usually hire from their at-hand contractor staff

I was a RadChem Lab Tech @ West Valley for 14 years. Not too
many years after WGII became the "Overlords", they decided that,
'In order to cut costs, we will outsource the Analytical & Process
Chemistry Dep't.'

Am I bitter? Not really.

I wonder if things at WGI will change after the sale to URS Corp. has been completed.

Well let me put it to ya this way, I was RCO for 4 yrs and a sub contract for 2 yrs.  During the 2 yrs as a contractor I never had any issues with them, just the usual money issues.  When I became an employee of thiers all he.. started >:(.  I will never work for a company that changes procedures on the fly to support thier wims.  They are definately in someones pockets.

I find that most people that like Washington Group are involved in some type of burocratic job, wether it be management, engineering, safety, etc.  The boots on the ground worker I think see things in a different light. :P

No complains, so far. Over all, was treated very well, even financially.

A large portion of the people that work for them are miserable and hate the company. A lot of people start out with high hopes, but those hopes are dashed in a short period of time.  The smart ones use it as a stepping stone or move to other things.  :o. Their reputation leaves a lot to be desired!

Thanks, good to know. However, my exposure to the managers in the Power Group has been favorable and a likelyhood of more work in the future.

I worked for them at Rocky Flats and INL. I don't see myself working for them ever again. WGI is a large operation and it's reasonable that people working in other areas under different managers saw different things than I saw and were treated differently. Hope it works out for ya Spankster.
