My first full-time office experience
Application Specialist (Current Employee) – Minnetonka, MN – July 14, 2017
I've been at my current job for about three and a half years now and have learned a lot in that time about what I do and don't want for my career moving forward. I arrive at 8am and leave around 4:30 in the afternoon. The commute to and from work is about an hour both ways, through the throes of rush hour traffic. This definitely is a negative aspect of my routine. I enjoy my peers, although as in any setting, everyone has a unique personality that can take some getting used to. My current job does not have a good retention rate, which makes meeting new staff a rather common occurrence. However, this hasn't stopped me from building solid relationships with many of my past and current co-workers. The staff are definitely one of the reasons I do this work. The hardest part of my job is keeping customers happy since much of the work we do is time sensitive in nature. But at the same time, it feels really good to get these issues accomplished. The management structure is very sound, which is nice in the sense that there is a clear hierarchy in place, although the opportunity for advancement does not come along often and the competition is always strong.
