Supervisor/Fulfillment Representative (Former Employee), Bartow, FLDecember 16, 2013
Pros: potluck luncheon, county commissioners meetings, and little supervision
Cons: short breaks, worked in inclement weather, and traveling two to three times a month
Basically, setup the postal department for daily mail-outs. Assigned different tasks to the Polk County Volunteers,i.e., retirees, students, and active employees. I was able to implement a program that help the county to same thousands of dollars by advertising through bulk rate service versus the piece by piece cost. Majority of my employees were senior citizens that enjoyed working with me. All the co-workers were adamant about helping each other. I would say the hardest part about this job was the traveling through the US and abroad setting up trade-shows. The most enjoyable part of the job was helping to bring tourism to Polk County.

Vehicle Maintenance Coordinator Assistant (Former Employee), Bartow, FLApril 10, 2012
Pros: every friday off. only a 4 day work week.
Cons: no raises for several years.
I would schedule maint. services for the fleet as well as any repairs. Afterward would start reports for management and audits for FDOT. I learded alot about Federal Regulations and what it took to run a transportation fleet. How to juggle vehicles when not enough to go around. The management could of stood behind you alittle more than they did. Co-worker were great. Everyone worked together. The hardest part of work was not having enough information on the Audit Reports for FDOT and having to start from scratch. Countless hours would go into it and they would want something totally different. However the most enjoyable was knowing in the end we would pass the audits with flying colors and the reports would be dead on. Walked out with a big smile on my face knowing the whole company would look good because of something I did.
