Job security, even though the contract was purchased from Karmanos, by WSU my current job was still available, new job title, higher pay.
Pros: good health benefits, work was always available, and my lunch break was one hour.
Cons: flexible spending money was none refundable if not used within one year.
A typical day at work was data entry, comparing the information that was entered into the database to the paperwork in the office and monthly reports were ran and distributed, filing and telephone assistance as needed to the staff that worked in the field, request for reports, paperwork and supplies were given weekly, I crossed trained the new employee after hired into the department. I learned to work with about 30 employees as needed. Management was fair and were hard workers. My co-workers were different each person in his/her own way, I was a help to them as they requested assistance while working out in the field and when they came into the office on a monthly basis. The hardest part of the job was when I had to do the work which took two people to do, after my fellow side by side co-worker quit to move on to another company to take on another position. I was responsible for her work and what I was previously responsible for (I handled it, one day at a time). The most enjoyable part of the job was the respect that my co-workers had for me, they appreciated my efforts and most important of all I still had a job after the company Wayne State University made an agreement with Karmanos Cancer Institute, I worked in the same office/same location, only my job title changed and I also received a pay raise.
