Pros: cafe within walking distance of workplace, 40 hours per week, good place to work most of the time, gain experience as a student
Cons: no benefits, no heathcare, no room for advancement, management always talks down to most everyone and won't help progress with career path
My review only speaks for the USACE Learning Center.
I assist senior specialist in assessing, managing and preparing training equipment for shipment to support program cost, schedule and performance to locations worldwide. I receive material requirements to initiate, process review and analyze the need for actions to the related training schedule. – more... I plan, organize and manage warehouse inventory and training equipment, issue and receive supplies for training, manage real property and prepare items for shipment to include various items of supply, technical and training manuals, sensitive electronic equipment and materiel. I perform research and recommend strategies related to providing support to training requirements and delivery schedules. Identify near-term and long-term supply and transportation requirements to support training objectives. Participate with technical personnel in developing and implementing integrated logistics plans and assessments to support operational policies. Organization is a key factor to maintaining a well-functioning warehouse so I pay a great amount of attention to inventory management. Interface with vendors and suppliers to manage and maintain inventory. Utilize automated information systems to manage warehouse inventory and property accountability systems, order training materials and supplies, and schedule shipments with commercial carriers. I receive inbound shipments, sort and account for items prior to returning them to their proper locations within the warehouse once training classes have been completed and shipment is returned to the ULC. I also assist Course Managers and Training Technicians in setting up training course secessions as needed.
What I learned: When I become a manager I will treat people with respect "The way I would want to be treated."
Management: Refer to CONS
Hardest part of the job: Having to respect management
Most enjoyable part of the job: Setting up classrooms for training with some really funny technicians who will make you laugh and make your day. – less
