Pros: fun coworkers, required field visits
Cons: a little unstructured, asked for more work but did not alway receive it
-The typical day started at 6:30 AM and went until 3:00 PM. I was in charge of updating their filing system from documents to digital files. This involved a lot of scanning and labeling. I would also be given whatever odds and ends needed to be taken care of.
-I learned that there are many different types of management styles, ones that work for different people. I also learned how to be organized, as the documents I handled were extremely important.
-Management was a bit loose, giving me a task and an end date and leaving when to update up to me.
-My co-workers were about 20 years older than myself and were always willing to help if I had any problems. I worked closely with 4 in a cubicle set up, with another 8 field workers coming in throughout the week.
-The hardest parts of the job were starting so early and keeping myself busy. However, I quickly adapted to the hours and started to range outside of my department to find more work to do.
-The best part of the job was learning how to manage a group of people underneath you and seeing how people handle stress levels differently.
