Administrative Assistant at Harlem RBI (Current Employee), New York, NYApril 7, 2014
Pros: full hour lunch
Cons: no cons
This was my first real job experience. It was a summer job and I learned a lot about the logistics of hospital operations. The management team was extremely helpful and professional. My coworkers were just as eager as I to learn and grow. The hardest part of the job was the constant running back and forth in the hospital. The most enjoyable part was – more... interacting with patients and working in a hospital setting – less

Very Inspiring and definitely fun to be a part and have a voice!
Associate Speaker (Current Employee), LosAngelesFebruary 27, 2014
Pros: teamwork, outings, traveling
Cons: need for more donations
A typical work day when we are hard at work is very exciting since we know that we have an important work to do for others.
Our goal is to serve others. I learned how to work smart and effective as well as in a timely manner. My co-laborers and I have a partnership where we feed off each other's inspiration through our dedication to the work.
The hardest – more... part of the job is maybe following up with 3rd party associates and maintaining the work with the donations that come our way.
The most enjoyable part of the job is seeing the results of our labors and being reminded of why we do this kind of work. – less

Best first job
Customer Service Represenative/ Supervisor (Former Employee), Nashville,TNMay 19, 2013
Pros: breaks
Cons: back to back calling
A typical day there consists of answering inbound calls. I learned how to be professional on the phone as well as learned how to do cold calling. The co workers there were pretty much laid back as well as the managers. The hardest part about the job is the non stop calling. you hang up on one customer, you have another call right away. The most enjoyable – more... part of the job was working with good team leaders. – less

- Rallies. These events get the participants kids/adults ready to go for the season ahead. There are many smiles and much joy at the events, and I don't get that environment very often. – less
