Reclamation Plant Operator III (Former Employee) – Spring Valley, CA – August 1, 2014
Operated water reclamation facility on a 4-10 schedule and was on call two days per week. Learned about safety, wastewater treatment, and how to run an efficient water district/public utility. Management was direct, demanding and knowledgeable. Co-workers were hardworking people who took pride in their jobs, but had a hard time enthusistically accepting the high demands of a well run utility. Hardest part of the job was being on call and not getting much sleep those nights. Most enjoyable part of the job was working the 4-10 schedule and getting three days off per week.
