Preventative Maintenance Technician (Former Employee) – McLean, VA – January 17, 2014
I would report to Hewlett Packard printer test group Bldg.10. I basically took proto-type printers apart, made engineering modifications and set up printer banks for the operators to run life tests on them. I would upgrade firmware, troubleshoot software and mechanical systems. The hardest part of the job was staying busy. The most enjoyable was working with my peers and supporting my customers.
Office Manager/Bookkeeper (Former Employee) – Sylmar, CA – December 22, 2015

Media Production Member (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – December 14, 2015
Everybody has their own roles but is more than happy to help out when asked. The days can be kind of long depending upon the event (Football, Basketball, Soccer) but all in all its not bad. After a while you get to know your co-workers so its nice to be able to establish some synergy. The hardest part about the job is setting up and breaking down the equipment. However if everyone knows what they are doing then it doesn't take long to get in and get out. All in all a great job to have if you're in college.
L.A.D.C (Former Employee) – Men's Program – October 30, 2014
Park Avenue is a good place for a starter career, if you are looking to get your feet wet and want experience to list on your resume. A typical day is rather chaotic. You can relate it to, "too many cooks in the kitchen." In this scenario it is too many supervisors lacking supervisory skills. They tend to save money by hiring interns, who have no experience in management or any inkling on how to run a show. The program director for their men's program is all about mental health and does not seem to understand the chemical dependency side of things. Their human resource manager is not there to support the staff, but seems to just be there to dominate over everyone else. Good luck going to her regarding any concerns, as you are lucky if you ever get a reply to your messages or emails. The owner of the company is so out of the loop as to what is going on, he has too much trust in the people he leaves in charge. There are many great people that work here, however they too seem run down by the way they are treated. I chose to leave as I have watched too many get burned out and I did not want to be another casualty.
Really enjoyed working for CHS. I learned a lot in the construction industry, loan processing, enjoyed working for City clients & applicants, ect.
Project Consultant/DSA Closeout Specialist (Current Employee) – Huntington Beach, CA – September 4, 2014
I learned a lot in the construction industry, loan processing, enjoyed working for City clients & applicants. Received great experience in different types of government funding & programs. It was never the same type of work everyday, so it was always very enjoyable.
Great work enviroment, team players
Benifits, always had opportunties to attend workshops, job was exciting & something different on a daily basis
A typical day at work was to look at my projects list and review priorities. I learned all my core marketing strengths and strengthened related software skills here.
These were among the best co-workers I ever had, and still maintain friendships and working freelance relationship with many of them. It was amazing that so many great people were in the same place at the same time.
The initial management was wonderful but when the company was bought by an investment corporation the culture changed drastically.
The hardest part of this job was that within 3 months of being hired to write editorial part time, my boss left with no notice. My reputation allowed me to step into the Marcom Manager role with barely enough experience and company knowledge.
The most enjoyable part of the job came once I realized I had gained the scientific industry knowledge, experience and contacts to be an effective and respected manager, and playing cards at lunch time with co-workers.
Corporate Purchaser (Former Employee) – Dunwoody, GA – July 26, 2012

This included managing of raw materials in accordance with scheduling of the machines, shipping and receiving, coordinating freight companies, job estimating and costing, answering 10-line phone system.
Setting up calls for stock brokers early in the morning, make coffee, input new accounts, answer calls, transfer calls, paging. Management were very uptight, not friendly or easy to talk too. Co-workers were very friendly with an exception of a few. Was waking up at 4am to be there by 5am to start the day. Was getting off at 2:30pm
