Principal Administrative Associate (Former Employee), New York, NYMarch 9, 2015
Pros: stability with great health care benefits
Cons: non
A typical day at work was the overall supervision of staff members and circulating interns. I have learnt to be more patient, learnable and to welcome challenges. I was fortunate to have been surrounded with a great management team that inspired me to move forward in my career. For the most part, my co-workers welcomed teamwork. Waiting for equipment repair and supplies was the hardest part of the job. The most enjoyable and rewarding part of the job was the ability to help our clients become self sufficient.

Productive workplace with new learning experiences.
Camp Counselor/Tutor (Former Employee), Rockaway Park, NYJanuary 8, 2015
Pros: building relationships, learning new skills.
Cons: sometimes there are dull moments with no task to be accomplish.
At my previous jobs there were different experiences at the facility everyday. There was not really a "typical day" because each day would hold a new learning experience. At the Department of Sanitation I handled a variety of tasks from answering and transferring calls to completing reports for employees who got hurt on the job. I learned how to pay attention to detail while filing reports.My co-workers were very kind to me here and taught me the necessary skills I needed in order to complete daily task. Overall, working with DSNY was a great learning experience. At the Visiting Nurse Service my role varied from day to day. Most days I would watch over children and rarely would I work in the office there. My co-workers were very kind and worked together on the job with the children.
