Trainee (Former Employee), Simpsonville, KYAugust 5, 2015
Pros: Free lunch, free transportation
Cons: Short Breaks
A typical day at work consisted of an 8 1/2 hour day starting with a safety meeting/briefing at 8:00am then splitting into teams to get the job done.

Learned how to measure correctly, level drywall, windows, and doors, install everything from studs to drywall.

Co-workers were easy to work with, and trustworthy with equipment and on the job site.

Hardest part of the job was finding a stopping point to go to lunch/having to go to lunch.

Most enjoyable part was Fridays, getting to see the family.
