I worked as a summer employee for the Public Service department of the City of Worthington. This job starts early and lets out in the afternoon. You work in teams based on departments but will get a good feel for all departments after awhile. I personally learned all of my grounds maintenance experience from my supervisor over a few summers. Every day is enjoyable if you like not doing the same thing everyday. There are many regular and special tasks for a public servant.
I work from 7:30 - 4:30 Monday - Friday My duties include working with Architects, Engineers, contractors and homeowners. I assist them with the permitting process, answering zoning and building code questions. My clerical responsibilties include date entry, purchase order request, maintaining the operating budget for the department, tracking of employee vacation and sick leave hours. The most enjoyable part of the job is my customer interaction.
have learned alot about both the commercial and residential building codes.
sometime there are slow periods and i become bored
