Pros: co-workers would go to lunch together on thursdays, free pair of steel-toed boots, could eat lunch wherever i wanted (when outside), 8 hour work days
Cons: wearing jeans/cotton shirt/steel-toed boots during the summer, no health benefits, a day's work depended on the weather, favoritism of co-workers
Typical day- depending on the weather, a day could be spent outside checking gas lines and reading business and residential gas meters or in the office filing or entering information into the computer system.
Hardest part of job- being outside on the hottest days of the summer in a cotton shirt/jeans/steel-toed boots and the were co-works that management – more... favored over others and gave them better and/or less involved tasks.
Most enjoyable part of job- my department manager treated everyone fairly, the office workers were nice, when the weather was nice I could eat lunch wherever I wanted. – less
