Wonderful company to work for
Builder Marts (Former Employee), Greer, SCFebruary 16, 2015
Pros: wonderful culture, family type of atmosphere
In working for Builder Marts Of America it was this company that gave me a chance to get into the accounting industry. During my time there I worked in A/P and learned how to code, input, and run checks. Additionally, I worked to acquire experience in A/R as well and did some minor staff accountant tasks. One of my most enjoyable accomplishments was both working on the A/R team and doing some of the monthly reconciliations.

Recording Music trying to get it right. Hard work pays
Musician (Current Employee), Sacramento, CAFebruary 3, 2015
Pros: its my heart
Cons: no fiscal payout
Its going to take a while to become successful at this, but I'm on my way; it is my dream. I learn every day with every sound that I hear. Inspiration can come from anywhere or anything. The hardest part is getting the tracks in time and remembering the right words to say. When I stop thinking is when it comes out right. Right now my band is just that of two, and the fact that we don't really have the resources we need, makes it more difficult. But we make due with what we have. The best part of the Job is to listen to the music afterward and to hear all the things thought up in my mind.

I worked long hours, but jobs were mostly rewarding.
Executive Director, Literacy Volunteers (Former Employee), Grants, NMJanuary 3, 2015
Pros: the people; learning more science.
Cons: long work hours, lack of balance in my life.
For the teaching jobs, the days consisted of working with students, conducting classes and labs, preparing for classes, grading work, and working online with distance education classes. I learned more science beyond my specialities in geology, evolution, history of life on earth. I learned more chemistry, physics, human anatomy and physiology, and microbiology. I also learned to appreciate diverse ethnic groups (African Americans, Hispanics, Native Americans, Asian Americans, etc). I enjoyed working and laughing with my co-workers in all of my jobs. The hardest part of the teaching jobs was a the long hours and constant commitment that I put in because I felt that, for the students, it was necessary. The most enjoyable part of the job was the people, both colleagues and students. The management at Christopher Newport was wonderful and they became friends. At New Mexico State University--Grants, the management varied, some friends, at least colleagues, others friendly but not close.

Fulfillment in assisting clients who would otherwise be unable to purchase a home without this program.
MORTGAGE CONSULTANT (Former Employee), Kansas City, MOOctober 6, 2014
Pros: fulfillment
Cons: lots of paperwork
Met with 4 to 5 clients daily. Hopefully, this included 3 intake clients and 2 follow up visits to glean further documentation. When there were no shows, it provided time to process the loans which was sorely needed as the clients were low to moderate income with usually lower than normal credit scores as NACA (National Assistance Corporaton of America) has no credit score requirement.
But a character-based credit profile must be developed calling for letters of explanation and rental verifications.

The hardest part of the job was keeping the clients attention as much of the documentation had to be updated when underwriting came back for more documentation.

Management was spread thin and it was necessary to push to get a file through and many times no onw was available to push.

The best part was when the buyers closed. Many were first-time homebuyers and people that would never have been able to purchase a home anywhere else. The hugs and hearty handshakes made it all worthwhile.

mail room
Messenger/Records Clerk (Former Employee), Kansas City, MOAugust 22, 2014
Pros: overtime
With this company I started out as a mail carrier. I simply sorted mail and then delivered it to the different floors. I was then promoted to a filer and I worked in their warehouse where I simply filed away folders all day. The company did offer overtime and the people were lovely to work with.

Productive customer service with a positive behavior
Clerk/Communication Staff (Current Employee), Atlanta, GAMarch 19, 2014
A day at work is always wonderful. Being able to help people is my passion. I have learned a lot from interacting with diversity of people. Moreover, management and my co-workers are great to work with. We also promote teamwork. However, the hardest part of my job is when some policy prevents me from solving a customer's problem at that moment. Not withstanding, the most enjoyable part of my job is when the goals of my team are reached at the end of the day.
