Student Worker (Current Employee), Slippery Rock – April 7, 2014
Pros: flexible hours due to school work.
Much of what I have experienced while working with the university are skills and applications that will travel with me through life. Many of the carpentry, mechanical, electrical, and HVAC skills that I picked up are crucial to everyday life. A regular day at work involves me traveling to the job site with either an electrician, carpenter, mechanic, – more... or HVAC crew member and start to work on whatever the task is that day. There are challenges everyday at work, but nothing that cant be fixed. It is enjoyable to work with people that enjoy their work, and are hard workers. – less
HOUSEKEEPER (Current Employee), Lexington, KY – March 12, 2014
If you are a prospective employee, I would recommend staying as far away from this company as humanly possible. The supervisor is outright disrespectful and the office staff are completely aloof. Any work that needs to be done on the property is done half-heartedly or shrugged to the side based on if he likes a resident or not. There is no pleasing – more... anyone as far as working hard or otherwise. I have been told on many occasions that I do a wonderful job as a housekeeper, only to turn around and have everything picked apart by said supervisor. He WILL belittle his workers, bully them about, and treat them as sub-human individuals. I don't care how desperate you are, this is not it, don't do it, trust me. – less

Pros: good pay
Cons: poor working enviroment
I worked many hours a week because we were extremely busy. Had to drive 170 miles round trip each day to get there. So it was a very draining year, but I did enjoy my job. Unfortunately they went out of business.

Business Owner and Operator (Former Employee), Leland, NC – September 14, 2013
General maintenance on residental property. As owner I learned how to manage a business. I had only a few workers and used a network of contacts to preform work that was outside the scope of my abilities. There was not real hard part of this work and I really enjoyed the interaction with the owners of the preperties
Maintenance/Saftey (Former Employee), Los Angeles, CA – August 8, 2013
Pros: co-workers are more of a family
Cons: no chance for advancement
I have to say I learned lots of things in the warehouse environment from, driving forklifts, loading and unloading trucks and more. On the other hand I felt sometimes you can work so hard and give so much for a company, and yet go unappreciated. I thank the company and co-workers whom I learned from so much, but when one tries to be with a company for – more... the long run and make a career with them, it makes it hard to continue when you see that there is no chance for advancement. – less
I learned how to be reliable, flexible, and dependable on a job.
Janitor (Former Employee), York, PA – July 26, 2013
While I was working at Crispus Attucks as a janitor, I learned what a day on the job is like. I worked usually right after school, so I was tired but I still go the job done. While I worked there, I would start with switching out the trash and taking it out every day. From there, I would clean the windows and vacuum the classrooms that needed vacuuming. – more... After that, I would work with a coworker and get the bathrooms out of the way. The toilets, the sinks, mirrors, and sweeping and mopping the floor. If the hallways needed to be done, I would sweep and mop those as well. Occasionally, I would also help to strip, buff, or wax the floors. My coworker and I always wanted to get what needed done out of the way instead of fooling around so we can just go home. My supervisor was okay with this, but we still needed to get our hours out of the way, so he would give us other things to do. However, since we always got the job done, he would let us get free snacks or drinks from the vending machines. The hardest part of the job was needing to be flexible and work around events when I didn't know if there was an event going on. The best part of the job is that I got to work with other people to get the job done. – less
Student worker (Former Employee), Quincy, IL – May 29, 2013
Pros: fun atmosphere
A typical day at work included preparing classrooms or play yard equipment by priming and patching holes and then painting them according to teacher/principals liking. The hardest part of the job was not being able to give your own advice, but the most enjoyable part of the job was the compliments we recieved.
