FAQs

In advance, and throughout the Transition period, we will post and add Frequently Asked Questions associated with the Transition.

Application Process

Q. I have not been contacted by anyone regarding my position on the HBZ contract. When will I be contacted?
Team Odyssey is in the process of allocating workshare to subcontractors. Once we have finalized this process, we will share your contact information with our HB EPASS Partners and a representative from that company will be reaching out.

Q. Is attending the Open House in Layton, Utah mandatory? Who may attend?
While we would love to meet you and shake your hand, we understand other obligations may take priority. Our Open House on January 16th (see details farther up this page) is a chance for Odyssey Senior Leadership, HB Executive Leadership, and HBZ Incumbents to all meet face-to-face.

Odyssey Leadership will be giving a presentation about the transition process and insight into our company. Members of our Security, Human Resources, and Talent Acquisition departments will also be present if you have any questions or concerns.

Q. I am having an issue finding the correct position to apply to. How can I find it?
Search for the position closest to the one you currently hold. There may be terminology changes from one contract to the next that could lead to confusion, so find the position that best matches your current position.

  • The table is searchable by Position Title, Labor Category Level, and Clearance Level.
  • If you cannot find your position, apply to the position that most closely matches. Our TA team will work with you to ensure you get to the correct position.
  • When in doubt, contact us at HBTransition@odysseyconsult.com or by using the form at the bottom of this section

Q. When I attempt to apply for a position and enter my email address, I get a failure message via CAPTCHA.
If you are using a government computer to apply, you may get this message and have to try to apply another way. This is related to security measures beyond Odyssey’s control. It is recommended that you use your personal computer or smartphone to apply. If you are having issues using your personal computer, please try the following measures:

  • If you are seeing the “ReCAPTCHA failed” message on the screen when you input your email address, make sure that you’re typing it into the field manually instead of copying / pasting
  • Check to see if you have DoD VPN on
  • Check to see if JavaScript is enabled in the browser
  • Are there any conflicting plugins?

Paid Time Off (PTO)

Q. How does PTO accrual work at Odyssey?
Odyssey provides PTO to eligible employees. Once accrued, PTO provides all full-time and part-time employees with paid time away from work that can be used for any reason, including vacation, personal time, illness, or time off to care for dependents. PTO is accrued every two weeks.

Q. Will my PTO from my current company carry over?
No, PTO from your former employer will not carry over at Odyssey

Q. If I have a trip scheduled for Spring 2024, can I still take it?
Employees may, with the approval of their Odyssey direct supervisor, take up to forty (40) hours of advance PTO before the accrual of PTO. Advance PTO is limited to no more than forty (40) hours and may not be used to exceed the employees annual accrual rate.

Q. Can I buy additional PTO?
No, you cannot purchase additional PTO.

Q. If I don’t take PTO, does it carry over, or do I lose it?
Employees can accrue and rollover PTO up to a maximum of 160 hours any one time, and / or from one Odyssey fiscal year to the next. Once an employee has reached 160 hours of PTO, no further time will be accrued or carried over fiscal years until the balance falls below 160 hours.

Q. Can I take Leave Without Pay (LWOP)?
LWOP can be requested and may be allowed for emergency medical leave for up to eight weeks. Appropriate Medical documentation must accompany the request and be confidentially provided to the appropriate Odyssey POC’s to support the approval process. LWOP is not permitted for vacations—please reach out to HR if you have any further questions.

Employee Benefits

Q. If I want to enroll in the FSA with Odyssey, does my contribution limit reset?
FSA funds are associated with the employer plan and not with the individual employee. This means that you can elect the full IRS limit amount with Odyssey, regardless of what you have contributed to your FSA at your previous employer.

Q. Do you offer a company match on 401k?
Yes, Odyssey matches 40% for up to 10% of employee 401k contributions.

Q. When will my employee benefits start?
Employee benefits will start on your hire date. Employees have 31 days to enroll/waive all benefits. If you elect benefits after your first day, they will still become active on your hire date.

Q. Am I eligible for benefits?
Benefit eligibility of Odyssey employees is based on the number of hours worked and can be discussed further with Odyssey Human Resources.

Q. Do you offer TriCare Supplement Insurance?
Yes, this helps offset your TriCare deductible and other associated costs.

Q. What company perks do you offer?
EAP (Employee Assistance Program), Pet Insurance, Tickets at Work & BenefitHub (discounts for various activities), Travel assistance, Medicare assistance.
