Productive Workplace
Landside Operations (Former Employee), Oakland, CASeptember 1, 2013
A typical day at work would be for me to take the lost and found messages from the day before, then try to find the customers items and if we have it in the lost and found then I would call them and let them know. I would either mail their item out to them or have them come in and pick it up, which ever is better for the customer. Then I would start – more... on renewing parking permits and for new employees with the Oakland Airport I would get them started on a new application for their parking permit. After that I would take a break and after my break I would work on filing papers while answering the phone for the lost and found. – less

Ground Transportation Coordinator assistant (Former Employee), Oakland, CAJune 4, 2013
Pros: nice working environment, free lunches sometime, nice people
Cons: office not opened to day light.
A typical day at work was made of phone calls and answers,meeting,meeting report writing, spreadsheet setting, problem solving,payment handling,files updating.but also talking with colleagues at break time from whom I learned a lot professionally and personally.
The manager, very professional and passionate with his job,very helpful.the co-workers, – more... helpful as well and fun.
The hardest part of the job was to explain the same thing many times to customers who were not cooperative.and have to enforce the rules and regulations;
most enjoyable when customers are happy and we received positive feedback.And the feeling of a job well done at the end of the day. – less

the port was a very interesting job and that was because it was so diverse
Forklift Driver (Former Employee), Oakland, CAJune 14, 2012
I liked my job because each day had its own challenges. It would start getting our job assignments, then the supervisor would advise us of what he expected out of the work crew. I learned a very valuable lesson there ,never assume anything!!!!! I liked my supervisor, if there was a way to accomplish a task quicker and safer he would show you.My co-workers – more... was easy to work with.I think the hardest part of my job was unloadind refriderated railcar it was cold What I enjoyed the most was on payday because we always had a light day. – less
