Youth Care Mentor (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – September 29, 2015
This was a fun place to work at. Management and staff were supportive and accommodating. I really enjoyed working with the youth and helping them improve their lives. I was welcomed in with open arms and grew with the company. Pay was decent and the environment was positive. Job is pretty routine but there is never a dull day. There is always something new to learn or experience. The days are long but worth every minute as you are changing the lives of disadvantaged youth.
packing (Former Employee) – Azusa, CA – January 2, 2014
Typical day at work was always busy. I learned how to work faster on packing and working in groups. The manager was a fair to all workers. The hardest part of the job was when the products would get jammed on the machine and we had to stack the rest of the product on different tables since the product would fall to the floor if it wasn't taken care of immediately. The most enjoyable part of the job was that it was always busy so time flew by fast.
Intern (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – August 4, 2014
Back in the summer of 2002 I had the privilege of working for one of the best post-houses in the business. Optimus is full of fun, fresh people who know their business very well.
Their client list is endless and my day was full of great opportunities to learn and grow in my profession.
The majority of my time as an intern was spent running media all over the Chicago area, and while many would find this drab I loved it. I was not from the Chicago area, so having the opportunity to get out in the summer weather and really learn my way around the Chicago downtown, priceless.
If you ever have the opportunity to do business with Optimus I hope you will seize that day, and take full advantage of working with a great team of creative and smart people.
I worked from 1:30pm to 10:00pm usually later, worked on a food production line.
