Agriculural Tech, Arvin - August 11, 2014
The work day started at 6am. Picked up truck and followed a map as a guide to drive to farms around the county to collect traps. Every trap was set an exact quarter mile. I counted each and every sharp shooter if present and entered it into a hand held device. Every day was a different section of the county's farmland. At the end of the week, I would turn in the hand held device. The hardest part of the job was to encounter coyotes, wild dogs and the gossip. I learned from management to keep my mouth shut and not to complain about anything. The co-workers were not friendly, and were uptight to newbies. The team leads were instructed to show me how to send reports and didn't follow through. The most enjoyable part of the job was Thursdays and pay days.
