Ramp Agent (Former Employee) – Shreveport, LA – January 20, 2016
A typical day at work was a lot of waiting for trucks to deliver packages. when the trucks arrived It was time to start moving and getting the job done. I learned that having a good work system is good to have and can be productive. Managing this job was easing going because everyone was in one place all the time and everyone was able to be seen in order to get the plane to go out on its scheduled time to depart . This particular job working with co-worker can be stressful at times. Some didn't want to lift up on heavy boxes and want to stay doing the same thing, where else others wanted the opportunity to the most easiest part of the job. The hardest thing about the job was lifting heavy boxes and moving them from one place to another. The enjoyable thing about the job there was a lot of free time to relax if this was a part time job and that you only worked for three hours.
Student Global Ambassador (Former Employee) – Charlotte, NC – May 18, 2014
Independent work that is required to spread the word about studying abroad with ISA. Working with the the Education abroad office at UNC Charlotte enabled me to learn about the process of studying abroad with all types of programs. Also it helped to get comfortable talking to students around campus and be more outgoing and at ease speaking publicly.
Computer Data Collector (Current Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – April 5, 2013
The company does customer satisfaction studies for medical clinics; political polls for election forecasting and attitudes toward government policy (e.g. what should the government do to lower the national debt), and product ratings. Getting peoples' reactions to government policies is interesting, but on some polls you get an earfull when somebody is really unhappy about a politician, a particular government policy; a particular HMO, or a particular product. The worst part of the job is that 95% of the people you call aren't at home so you waste a lot of calls. Some hang up on you, and some are hostile. On one poll I was on recently to rate the quality of health care from doctors at a particular HMO, I was accused of conducting a "witch hunt" against doctors by the person I was interviewing. One good result of this job: we usually know who is going to win an election long before it takes place.
interesting when you can actually reach a live person
calling people who are not at home. there ought to be a law.......
This company was very professional and experienced. I learned so much about the security field. Whether it was doing security for some MMA fights or the DNC in 2008. The management team always took care of the security agents.
