Pros: casual attire ok
Cons: poor pay, poor health insurance coverage.
Granted I had been out of the work force for years. So I was pretty disappointed at the total lack of social interaction. If it can't be done on a lunch break, it doesn't happen amongst the employees. The work environment is one of " if you don't know this, you're an idiot" deameanor. Many of us hired at the same time felt we were talked down to when we asked questions; yet in turn they'd encourage you to ask them. Very confusing. During my time there, O.T. was requested at least half the time. I guess that's great if you want the extra money. I didn't!
A typical day at work is tedious for an order entry clerk. I learned that I thought I was attentive to detail and that I can miss a million things even after looking at something for half an hour. The co-worker thing seemed very "clique-ish" to me. The hardest part of the job was opening my paycheck. I didn't feel very rewarded and the health insurance was pretty poor, I got a bill for almost everything I did healthcare relative, AFTER the insurance was billed. The most enjoyable part of the job was 5 p.m ( going home).. There were times I'd speak to a desk partner briefly , and be called on it while I watched and listened to others who were favored, talk half the day away without anyone correcting them about it. A disappointing experience. I ended up quitting. I worked hard , I have ethics and respect for others. I expected the same and oftentimes didn't feel I got the same treatment. I didn't find it rewarding. Jobs have changed a lot over the course of the past decade or more.. It was a hard lesson learned. I went from being on top of my game with one company.. to feeling like a worthless idiot with another. THAT, along with the lack of compensation, eventually drove me to leave.
