Pros: gatherings after work, free lunches, made a lot of friends
Cons: a lot of last minute deadlines
Typical day started with reading and responding to emails and checking voicemails and returning calls. Talking with co-workers and finding out about deadlines and helping them meet those deadlines for that day. Backing up on the front desk answering 10 line phone. Typing of field reports, specifications, memos/letters.
Hardest part of the job was having – more... deadlines that were unreasonable...we would have clients say they needed their information that day and you have at least 2 days worth of work and all of a sudden you're scrambling to get the job done, but we always accomplished the task and satisfied the clients.
Best part of the job was the people I worked with. We worked as a team and always got the job at hand done. Great people/friends.
Enjoyed that I could go in everyday and know exactly what I was doing and enjoyed every part of my job. Love typing and working with specifications. Learned to use Bluebeam program which is a program that allows you to mark up PDF files. Also learned how to upload/download drawings and information to and from FTP sites. – less
