The Columbus Water Works is a great place to work for any individual (man or woman) in which choose a profession in the waste water industry. A typical day at this organization consist of orders either drawn up from coordinators or managers, involving the renewal of sewer/water lines. The work is typically of high dexterity and physical. As an employee of the Columbus Water Works, I learned every phase of the Field Services Division which include: Television of Sewer lines, replacement of sewer/water mains, administrative work which involves analysis skills, oral & written communication skills. Management with the Columbus Water Works make sure all employees in the Field Services Division are cross trained to take on any task. However, the room for growth with some managers are limited because of educational purposes, therefore, others feel as if some in management knowledge of today's new technology limits their subordinates in doing his or her job. The morale among co-workers are great. After working with many of the other employees for close to five years, it felt like being around family 5 to 6 days a week, and many are still close friends that I would trust with my life. The hardest part of the job would become the physicality of some of the positions in which the work need to be performed, however, after gaining experience you soon find out if properly supervised it is not that hard at all. The most enjoyable part of the job is knowing the individuals that you are working with care just as much as you do about the safety and wellness of their fellow co-worker as much as you do!
