Canvass Director/Crew Chief (Former Employee) – Kansas City, MO – April 20, 2016
Canvassing diverse neighborhoods helped me understand different cultural norms and socio-economic patterns. Supervising volunteers was a joy, as most volunteers are full of energy and do the work as a hobby. The hardest thing for me to get used to was going door to door in three feet of snow.
Best job I ever had, good benefits, yearly raises, and bonuses, company took care of their employes

GIS Tech/Drafter (Former Employee) – Jackson, MS – January 12, 2014
Great place to have worked. The environment was very relaxed, but everyone's productivity, including my own, was impeccable. It was a family friendly work place where your bosses became your friends. The job itself was very challenging at times, but because of the excellent training provided there was always someone that could help with any problem. Advancements were never given, but they were earned, which made everyone work harder to move up within the company. The best part about the job is it never felt like I was going to work and my co-workers were like family.
pot lucks and challenging
had to work with some engineers that were extremely difficult
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Davis, CA – September 22, 2014
This company is a non profit and most work in done in Africa and a few other countries. The organization is very family oriented. If you have any kind of scheduling issues management will work with you to make sure you are able to get your job done. Everyone is very nice.
Accounting Assistant (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – September 22, 2014
Typical days consisted of inventory of the store and shelves, customer service and stocking the shelves. I learned multiple scheduling programs for the store. Management changed often as well as how we where expected to do customer service. The hardest part of the job was when Autozone bought out chief auto parts and then laid off the Chief Auto Parts assistant managers. Helping customers get exactly what they needed to fix their cars was my most enjoyable part of the job.
learned about all the new car products
low pay and the company did not encourage education at the time
Normally, when I first arrived at work I would be ringing customers. This would allow the other person to get out from behind the counter and go complete a duty that was assigned to them. After they completed the duty, they would come ring customers while I went and completed one of my duties. We would switch off like this throughout our shifts until all of our duties were completed then we would both ring customers to keep the lines short. I learned a lot about customer service during my time here and a lot about responsibility. The management was very understanding while still making sure that things were going the way they should be. I really enjoyed my coworkers, we tended to call ourselves a family because everyone got along pretty well. The hardest part of my job was handling difficult customers. Although I kept my cool and remained calm, it was very displeasing to be treated like I was worth nothing. My favorite part of the job was making a difference in someone's day. I enjoyed putting smiles on people's faces or hearing them tell me they appreciated my happy attitude. It was very rewarding.
