Administrative Assistant, Procurement Department (Former Employee), Tucson, AZ – July 20, 2013
Pros: my hourly pay was very good
Cons: the departments within the office were not working together, making it hard on the procurement department to do their job, the company did not offer any drinking water other than tap water.
Aker Solutions supplies temporary employees to Jacobs Mining and Minerals, Inc., in Tucson, AZ. I was able to learn how to enter information into a proprietary database that had its quirks but was efficient and easy to learn. The person I was trained by was efficient yet controlling; my manager was fair and was trying to mold the department into a more – more... efficient and cohesive one. The workload wasn't as intense as expected, so my contract ended. Because of the transition of the department from one director to another, my co-workers were a little stand-offish, yet they were trying to get along. The hardest part of my job was making my trainer happy with my work. – less
