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.
