Installer (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – January 31, 2015
a typical day at work included arriving at 5:30 am, checking off the job materiel, loading it into a van, driving it to the customer's house, troubleshooting several things on-site during the installation, and a thorough cleanup before leaving for the day. I learned how to communicate with customers quite professionally, how to troubleshoot more effectively, and a few carpentry/finish work skills I didn't already know. Management was largely disorganized and under qualified due to a rough company merger, often letting their personal feelings get in the way of their jobs. My co-workers were very hard working, highly skilled, and would help whenever they could. The hardest part of the job was the long hours, often 12 or more, from the time I got to the shop until the time I got home. The most enjoyable part of the job was working in a bunch of beautiful homes, meeting all of the different customers, and getting a glimpse of their lives for a day.
