Solar Installer Volunteer (Former Employee), Visalia, Goshen, Fresno, Clovis and PortervilleMay 20, 2013
Pros: i get to work with atleast one bew person every day
Cons: its only volunteer work for me so there is no pay
I've learned a lot from the volunteer work that i have done with Grid Alternatives; Safety, protecting the roof, locating rafters, racking assembly, conduit bending etc. The company employees are a fun and interesting group to work with. The hardest part of the job is keeping from getting sunburned. My favorite part of the job is enjoying the diverse – more... food that the different customers offer for lunch every day. – less

Productive Workplace
Project & Development Associate (Former Employee), Fresno, CAOctober 21, 2012
Pros: team atmosphere, good boss, valued creativity & hard work
Cons: healthcare, stability
I worked as an AmeriCorps VISTA with GRID Alternatives as a Development Associate. As a Development Associate, most of my day was focused on creating new opportunities for funding for the Central Valley office of GRID Alternatives. A majority of the projects that I worked on were ideas that I suggested to the Regional Director of the Central Valley – more... Office. This helped me to understand the importance of follow through and gave me the confidence to present my ideas knowing that I could carry them out.

Management encouraged their employees to be involved in the total process of assisting homeowners in receiving solar energy. Everyone in the office assisted other departments in the office if the help was needed, which inspired a team atmosphere. I attended job fairs & college fairs to promote the mission of GRID Alternatives and also to encourage members of the community to volunteer their time.

This job also provided me with my first opportunity to deal with a difficult co-worker. It was definitely a struggle at first, but as the year continued, I learned to not take things personal. This change in attitude helped to change the atmosphere for our department, although the co-worker still provided many challenges for the office & its employees.

The hardest part of the job was working as a AmeriCorps VISTA because of the salary and absence of health insurance. – less
