The most enjoyable part of my job was my coworker working as a team,

The company is a good company but the people were not always the best to work with. The previous company was bought by SAIC and the management that took over made sure the staff felt like the domestic help. You could feel the tension between management and the staff.

Storage/Property Clerk (Current Employee) - Kuwait - June 17, 2013
A typical day involves entering data into the computer to locate equipment on the shelves, or to place equipment into inventory. I also manage a spreadsheet to keep track of all equipment that is to be turned in, and perform inventories. Issue equipment and property to customers. It is a fast paced environment, but that is good. The management is great- they give you instructions and leave you alone to perform the work. My coworkers are wonderful-we help each other to accomplish the mission, without regards to our job titles. The hardest part of the job is...it isn't hard at all. The most enjoyable is at the end of the day, when all work has been completed.
