Structured work place
Builder Helper Surry Power Station (Former Employee), Surry, VAJuly 11, 2014
Pros: focus on safety and adherence to policies
Cons: outage work loads
We usually worked ten hour workdays, four days a week unless we were involved in an outage. Work strategies were discussed beforehand with input from management and workers always with a focus on safety. I enjoyed working with my coworkers, who most often, were more experienced and willing to share from their work experience.
The hardest part about the job was the work load during the outages but completing those task, however complex were the most fulfilling and enjoyable part of the job.

Day at work
Select Staffing - Assembler/ Warehouse (Former Employee), Temecula CAApril 14, 2014
Pros: rotation on duties, you were allowed to dress casually.
Cons: short breaks
The day would begin with the workers being assigned on certain stations. What I learned was keeping sure I was sending quality products to customers. My fellow co-workers and I had to establish team work since we rotated. The hardest part of the job was when the machines would brake down and it would not produce the numbers that were required. The enjoyable part was when the rotation on duties were made.

All personnel were very accomodating and friendly.

The hardest part of the job was learning how to use a material handling truck.

The most enjoyable part of the job was watching the salesforce mature and develop as better sales people.

company was a good people with good communication
Mechanic (Former Employee), Bettendorf, IASeptember 6, 2012
Pros: insurance, 5 days a week 1st shift
Cons: heavy lifting
Worked on heavy equipement mostly fork lifts. Started out as a truck driver and after a few months started working on major overhauls on the older junk fork lifts. After a few rebuilds learned how to paint and make these old machines sell. After the second years I went to ev100 school to work on electric fork lifts. The job was harder when they had me go on the road to fix trucks in the field. I enjoy traveling, but not setting up shop on the road. I was much happier in the shop working on bigger projects like engine or truck over haul.
