School Patrol Officer (Former Employee), Chattanooga, TN – February 20, 2015
I worked part time in the mornings and afternoons as a crossing guard at an elementary school, which allowed me time to take care of my small children and run errands during the day. I grew to learn the school kids names and became familiar with all the parents dropping off kids and drivers/passersby on their way to work. It was fun! The hardest part of the job was being outside in the worst weather (like heavy rain and very low temperatures). Overall, I loved the job and my supervisor was very understanding and easy to get along with.

Equipment Operator (Current Employee), Chattanooga, TN – July 21, 2014
Pros: interacting with public
Cons: constant demand of the job itself
My day begins @ 7AM with a short meeting with the management and co-workers, then I pre-trip my truck while thinking over the days route and how to make myself the most efficient, once out on the route my job requires that I make all stops for that day. The high demand of the job & working the majority of holidays while most others are off, has to be the hardest part of the job. On the other hand though I find that many of the people I get to interact with makes it all worth it. I really enjoy seeing their smiling faces.
Nice place to work, lots of valuable job training.
Water Quality Specialist (Current Employee), Chattanooga, TN – July 8, 2014
Pros: getting to be outside and make your own schedule to a degree.
Cons: not many opportunities for advancement.
Typically I am out in the field doing various monitoring activities in the creeks of Chattanooga. I have leaned many things about working with a permit from TDEC and many things about monitoring water quality. I have lots of very nice and hardworking coworkers. The hardest part of the job is when we get lots of rain so we are stuck inside and cannot get out in the field. The most enjoyable part of the job is getting to work outside and see very interesting parts of the city.
Administrative Support Specialist (Former Employee), Chattanooga, TN – May 13, 2014
Pros: benefits, hours worked, gym, clinic
Cons: no room for advancement, corrupt officials, not enough employees to do the work
Everyone is fearful of losing their job so they will turn the other cheek to any wrongdoing that they see. If you want to be a modern day slave with no rights or freedoms, this is your dream job. If you are powerful and corrupt, this is your dream job.
Enjoyed working with so many different cultures and families.
Medical Assistant (Current Employee), Chattanooga TN – May 8, 2014
Cons: not enough money
Head Start is a great program and I enjoy working with the children and families. I have a wonderful boss that I think very highly of. On a typical day I go to at least 3 centers to do well checks and to send letters out to get information that I need on my children. I do classroom safety checks once a month and deliver health supplies once a month where they are need. I assist families in finding a medical and dental home for their child and on many occasions I have accompanied them. I learned a lot about time management and what the requirements are for the state of Tennessee. The most enjoyable part of my job would be the time I get to spend with these children and get to watch them grow in so many ways.
