I do work at California Public Employee Retirement System (CalPERS), Sacramento, CA. CalPERS administer health and retirement benefits on behalf of more than 3,000 public school, local agency and State employers. Our members number more than 1.6 million in our retirement system and more than 1.3 million in our health plans. My typical day at work varies – more... on a daily basis due to the type of job I do. I do work from 7:30 AM to 4:00 PM, Monday to Friday. Upon arriving at work, I log in on my desk top computer and check my office intranet (outlook) for all current and pending communications for the day and respond accordingly. Checking outlook and answering the phone are two constant things done daily at work in that it is used mostly to get and send information to managers and co-workers.
