Shawna explains the significance of teamwork and supporting the Customer:
“I am a jack-of-all-trades. In the branch I support, we have to be versatile and wear many hats. I enjoy that because it breaks up the monotony of doing just one thing day after day. I do mechanical engineering, support testing for aircraft, attend critical design reviews, and create 3-dimensional drawings for presentations and design. There is never a dull moment.
I believe every person on a team is important and therefore every contribution big or small matters. Sometimes you have to do the small oddball jobs or the tedious jobs that no one will ever know had to be taken care – and sometimes you accomplish the big jobs that gets the spotlight and Bravo Zulus.
As they say, there is no I in TEAM. Teamwork is a group effort and to be successful, communication is key. Things are constantly changing. Schedules change, designs change. In order to stay on top you have to know what is going on around you.
In our case – “customer” means THE NAVY. In my career, I have supported all branches of the military. They are our customer, which means every day that I come to work; I am supporting our military, which defends our freedom. What better job could you ask for?!
The best part is when I hear the results, such as we passed a ‘Critical Design Review, the Magic Wall is complete and operational and can now support the War fighter, the information obtained during testing was cutting edge and useful to the NAVY’.”
Jeremy describes how AMEWAS’ educational assistance program has advanced his career:
“The tuition and training assistance program afforded me the opportunity to complete my Associates degree and work toward my Masters without incurring any additional student loan debt or upfront money/out of pocket expenses. AMEWAS’ program is set up unlike many others’, where they will pay for the class upfront and so long as your grades meet the reimbursement requirements, you are not required to pay anything. I personally viewed this as an accountability measure and received nearly a 4.0 for the last four years I have utilized the program.”
“The program allowed me to not have to worry about budgeting for classes since they were paid for upfront. This allowed me to progress at an accelerated rate and work almost as fast as I wanted to while obtaining my Associates degree.”
“My Associates degree has definitely allowed me to advance in my current position, while my Masters has helped steer me down my ultimate career path/goal. AMEWAS most certainly values when an employee goes the extra mile and shoulders the additional burden of taking classes/training. This level of initiative is held in high regard across the company and management is willing to work with those who would like to advance/shift positions to put newly obtained education into practice.”
From then to now! Dana shares the path her career has taken with AMEWAS:
“I started working with AMEWAS in 2004 as a janitor and within 3 years, I received a promotion to serve as an NMCI liaison for the Integrated Combat Environments (ICE) Division. In 2010, I received my Security+ certification and promoted to serve as an Information Assurance Specialist. I continue to assist in all efforts to protect the Simulation Division information and networks from unauthorized access on a daily basis.
I feel AMEWAS is a company that gives their employees the opportunity for growth within, by providing educational assistance. With their assistance, I was able to achieve my Security+ certification to get the position I have now as an Information Security Specialist.”
