Serving those who serve for us is a rewarding job
COD - Assistant Business Manager Bowling (Current Employee), Pine Plains Bowling CenterNovember 5, 2014
Typical day at work includes - checking email for any immediate issues that require my attention, returning phones calls that may have been missed and talking to staff regarding daily events. I currently have a staff of 6 - on a daily basis I assist where needed from my administrative responsibilities, to making party reservations, to directly dealing – more... with customers. I am a supervisor so dealing with different personalities can sometimes be difficult but also rewarding as well. The hardest part of my job is being understaffed - during the busy season we are all required to bring our "A" game to the table, our days can be very demanding some days you feel that it takes everything that you have just to keep up. The most enjoyable part of my day is knowing that regardless of how little it may seem, I made someone's day better. – less

Team work was the key to success
Aircraft Jet Engine Mechanic (Former Employee), San Antonio, TXNovember 3, 2014
Pros: travel
Cons: being out in the elements
As a D.O.D. employee I performed aircraft maintenance. Each day was different due to no two aircraft needed the same type of maintenance. I learned to make critical maintenance decisions to ensure the work was done safely and according to the technical references. Working outside in the elements was a challenge. Travelling was the most enjoyable aspect – more... of the job. My co-workers and I were a well oiled machine and had great pride in performing our job to the best of our abilities. – less
