My day starts with reviewing incomplete jobs from our night shift, editing and correcting time cards, reviewing open work orders, answering emails, inputting inventory information into spreadsheets and from that point I handle whatever workload comes my way unless I already have scheduled meetings or appointments.
I have learned how to prioritize my work assignments and have gotten better at taking notes since sometimes I am assigned multiple assignments that must be completed with some being time sensitive.
I have had to learn how to deal with the different personalities of the employees that are assigned to me. Dealing with the employees can be uncomfortable at times but I have a good working relationship with my supervisors and employees.
The hardest part of my job is dealing with inexperienced management personnel and citizens. Staying up to date with all the policy changes and construction specifications, trying to keep up with an increased workload, which has made me a better multitasker and communicator, are also difficult parts of my job.
My section is responsible for the quality control of the equipment being installed and I take pride in knowing that my section is directly responsible for the safety of the citizens. I also enjoy the friends I've made.
