Good school to attend
Help Desk (Former Employee), Woodbridge, VAJanuary 25, 2015
I tempted there for free for a few hours a week while I attended school. I didn't have a chance to learn anything didn't stay long enough. I didn't really know my co-workers. The hardest part of the job was being there when it was really slow. The most enjoyable part of the job was loading software on hard drives.

Youth Service Worker (Current Employee), Omaha, NEJuly 2, 2013
Pros: i love working with the children and helping families with substance abuse.
Cons: there is no overtime and not enough salary wise to take care of my family.
A typical work day is to make sure the youth at the treatment center wake up on time, eat breakfast and take their morning medication. They then go to school or enjoy an outside or recreational activity. After that they have group with a therapist for about 3 hours while staff document and make sure youth are engaged in the community and school activities. I have learned a great deal about treatment plans and how those with mental illness and substance abuse thinks. The hardest part of my job is the children speaking to staff disrespectfully and being allowed to hold them to account for personal issues. I do manage my time great at this job and make sure all paper work in completed before my shift is over and pass on the days' activities along to the next shift after me. The most enjoyable part of my job is talking and teaching the children life skills and watching them understand how better their life can be without drugs and alcohol. Also my co-workers make the job that much better to come to everyday.

Two week 3d modeling job, work from home
3d Artist (Former Employee), Pittsburgh, PAMay 18, 2013
Pros: work from home, quick money
Cons: worked alone, very short deadline, many all-nighters
I worked from home to build to-scale digital 3d models of their construction on their building. I would get my instruction or feedback through email or phone, and I was given blue prints to refer for actual dimensions.

I was the only person hired in for this job and I had very little experience so it was very nerve-wracking. I had no exposure to reading blue prints so I had to teach myself in a couple hours. The project deadline was so close even from day one but I was able to learn new things and produce exactly what they needed.
