Great Company
Tech Support (Current Employee) –  Columbia Falls, MTNovember 10, 2015
A great company to work for. A group of very dedicated people striving for a common goal. Infighting is pretty minimal. A very lean organization means everyone must step up so long days and weekends can result during crunch time.

Executive Assistant (Former Employee) –  Seattle, WAJuly 22, 2013
Rewarding and very good environment where I was given the ability to branch out where my experiences and interests would best serve the company. The companies I have been with worked to ensure their mission statements and core ethical values were met and strove to ensure all employees and work products adhered to those values.

Busy little facility with fun-loving residents.
Resident assistant (Former Employee) –  Brunswick, OHMarch 16, 2013
I mostly worked 3rd shift, so it was relatively quiet. I basically helped the elderly/disabled residents with whatever they needed. I only worked with a few people, but my co-workers, for the most part, were hard-working and sensitive.
The hardest part of the job was probably caring for the residents who were real sick or confused.
The most enjoyable part was getting to know the residents and their families.
Pros
they provided dinner for us.
Cons
they didn't give the employees raises.
