Competitive USG contract environment. Restrictive front office facility hrs.
Systems Engineer (Former Employee) – Janesville, WI – January 27, 2016
Typical day began with calls/texts/emails from OEM facilities as early as 4:30 am. After arriving to the facility by 8 am, 50% of each day would be spent in meetings or on conference calls to resolve new or ongoing issues supporting multiple contracts. 35% of the day spent on keeping up with e-mail traffic on multiple programs and responding to immediate concerns. Last 35% of each day spent on updating ongoing project documentation and supporting quality, manufacturing, piece part and ballistic facility issues. (Math is correct - 120% of time was expected each day). Due to budget constraints phone/computer equipment/software was falling behind industry norms. Because of this, employees were not using current hardware. Management is trying to keep the business alive amidst changing USG ammunition forecasts. Co-workers are mostly riding their present positions out; many have not worked in other industries. Hardest portion of the job was not being kept in the loop on technical issues in a timely fashion - details were forwarded to me only after my manager found I had not been included to proper e-mail distribution as needed. This happened daily. Got to deal with very professional entities at many different facilities and in many states. Other outside companies that I dealt with directly on certain contracts were very pleased with my technical expertise and program management abilities.
Qtrly food events for the entire company - both 1st and 2nd shift, Dental through MetLife.
Healthcare system is minimal, Restrictive Front office area - not open on weekends, or for extended daily hrs., No opportunities for outside training - no time available, Too many contracts for the resources available.

a typical day consist of walking in the door and clocking in then sitting down at where you were assigned to and working really fast you couldn't talk that much and the lunch breaks were very short and you couldn't get up that much or the manager would yell at you

Tech Support II German Speaking Support (Current Employee) – Aliso Viejo, CA – February 28, 2013
A typical day at work is quiet, clean, until a difficult customer inquiry stirs you to action. I learned to listen to the customer. The management is very generous, and the co-workers could be considered trendy intellectuals. The hardest part of the job is acquiring enough information in time to give the best advice. The most enjoyable part of the job is a completely satisfied customer which is not determined until long after the customer experience.
no benefits, long commute, and not a permanent employee.
Being a Cable installer is much more than one things
Cable Installer (Former Employee) – Delray Beach, FL – December 9, 2012
It was early to work before 7am. It was also a 7 day schedule. I learned getting the TV channels and internet running perfect, was a lot more than expected. One have to use their experience and head to get the job done right. I didn't care much for taking out the long ladder every time to go up the high wire. At lease, the customers were please and thankful at the time of the finished job.
a pay check
sometimes long hours were in value to complete the job.
