Medical Logistics Specialist (Current Employee), Springfield, ILAugust 2, 2015
The hours were not so great. A typical day would be me receiving all the things we would be stocking for that morning and get them out on the shelves as the managers would tell us how they wanted things to go.

Transitional position
Department Manager (Former Employee), Troy, NYJuly 29, 2015
Pros: free lunches and company car
Cons: no retirement plan
Typical 9-5pm job. I learned to good work ethic in an construction setting. Management allowed me to problem solve and apply to issues that arose. Few co-workers, all office setting. Team focused co-workers. Hardest part of my job was out dated computers and software that hindered admin flow. Most enjoyable part was learning new skills.
