Worked at NORC for a semester while attending school, great place.
Pros: comprehensive and fair work place, hours, and attendance system.
Cons: located in downtown chicago, sometimes difficult to get to.
After high school I moved to Chicago and attended Harold Washington College for a semester. During this time I was employed with NORC (National Opinion Research Center). A typical day of work consisted of clocking in manually to your work station and setting it up. Then I would review the sample files in the system and start making calls around the United States. Management was extremely professional and everyone communicated well. I didn't get to know many of my co-workers while I was out there because I was so busy and focused on the job, but I never had a problem with anyone. Everyone seemed like good people, for sure. The hardest part of the job for me was the location - I had to travel an hour at times to get to work on time. This job helped me greatly with my communication skills.
