Decent place to work. As a part time employee, theres little room for advancement.
Pros: mostly simple work, flexible lunch time
Cons: no benefits for part time employees
A typical day at work consists of clocking in, going to whatever task has been arranged or needs returned to in order to be completed. At nine o'clock we are given a ten minute break and then return to work until lunch time, which is flexible. Lunch lasts thirty minutes and then we return to work until it's time to leave for the day. I've learned how to plow snow with a John Deere 955 and 4400 tractor and brush hog with them as well. Jackhammering concrete, doing minimal concrete work, construction, destruction, and various landscaping skills were leaned and honed. The management usually has tasked assigned for the winter, unless it snows, or throughout the year they assign us tasks out of the norm. On a regular base we mow, trim mow, weedeat, leaf cleanup, trash and recyclables pickup, dirt work, seeding, planting, mulching, and other landscape and maintenance, both indoors and outdoors, are undertaken. Co-workers were helpful and useful, and knowledgeable or eager to learn. There was no specifically hardest part of the job. Busting and removing concrete in household basements on campus would perhaps be one of the more demanding things. Summer work was the most enjoyable part of the job, personally.
