IT Field Support Technician (Current Employee), North Charleston, SC – November 27, 2013
A typical day at work is making sure the ticket queue is current. Basically, resolving issues with PC's (hardware and software), re-imaging PC's, resolving printer issues, and some network connectivity issues.
Being I am fairly new in IT, I've learned quite a bit. I've learned about Citrix, Active Directory, and a little networking (basic functions – more... of a patch panel). Also, learned a lot about applications we use, especially when some applications don't work. Another thing I've learned is that drivers can be sensitive toward other drivers when trying to install multiple bank scanners on one PC. And printer issues aren't always the easiest to fix.
Management is great because they don't micro-manage me and will help me when I need it. Co-workers are easy to get along with and will also help me when I need it.
The hardest part of my job is when I come across an issue I've never dealt with before and trying to resolve it on my own.
I enjoy the fact that I am not micro-managed, makes it a lot easier to do my job, I think. – less

At Shawnee Gardens we catered to elderly clients. A typical day involved coming in receiving report and making sure that staffing was adequate to ensure quality care for clients. I learned that communication is a key factor in order for anything to run smoothly. My co-workers worked well with one another and for the most part were team players.

Pros: wonderful company, supervisors
Cons: per diem hours not reliable
Love the company, love the supervisors, love the coworkers, love the clients! Hate the "per diem" It's really the ONLY negative thing I can say about my experience with them.
