Reclamation Worker, Bay City, MI - January 4, 2016
This is a job that is an excellent opportunity for college students. The hours that you work are pretty much set. Your start time remains the same, except for holiday weeks. What the work is like is a little more demanding than other jobs You are responsible for unloading the trucks and recycling everything that comes off of said trucks. With that being said the work in itself is not hard and should come easily. It is just monotonous. The co workers make this job excellent, because you are a close knit bunch, as there are only 14 in this department. Management is good, but as is the case in any situation can be improved upon. Communication between coaches in the recent past has been sketchy, but they are attempting to work on this problem. The pay is a little above minimum wage, but there are no chances at raises (outside of after 1 year you get a fifty cent raise). You are unionized so your job is protected, but again there are no chances as performance raises.
