Sanitation and Maintenance Worker (Former Employee), Lewisville, Arkansas – August 19, 2014
A typical day would be to ride on the back of the trash truck and pick up all the trash in the City of Lewisville. However as resources began to dwindle my job duties increased to maintenance of city property as well. Learned how to adapt to any type of weather. Management was good to the city workers, they treated us fairly. My co-workers were good – more... to work with and never had a problem with any of them. The hardest part of the job was being outside in the heat. The most enjoyable part of the job was payday and going home to my family. – less
