A really good place to work
Assembler/Recycling (Former Employee), Huntington, WVJune 30, 2014
Once I learned the job, I worked with very little supervision. I learned a lot about all aspects of assembly of windows. Management was great and willing to reward good performance. My co-workers were helpful and worked well together. The hardest part of the job was finding out they were going out of business. The most enjoyable part was being trusted – more... to do my job. – less

Hard laborous environment
Customer Service (Former Employee), Santa Ana, CAJanuary 13, 2014
Pros: meet a lot of people
Cons: no benefts
I would wait at the recycling station until customers came by and i would attend them. First I would separate all of their materials and weigh it. I would calculate how much was due to them and then i would pay them, and wait for the next customer. I learned how to remain calm and handle rude and non-compliant customers.The management and other employees – more... there were all generous and welcoming, nice to be around. The hardest part of the job was having to separate all the material the customers brought. The most enjoyable part was meeting new people and building new relationships. – less

Customer Satisfaction
Driver Residential (Former Employee), West Jordan, UTOctober 13, 2013
I think the reason I am a great driver is because I treat every service like it is my own. Every customer is different and has different needs. I understand that every customer I service needs to be treated with respect, and I haven’t let a single person down yet.

I have managed to successfully deliver outstanding service 100 percent of the time. In – more... fact, my manager even received several calls from customers who wanted commend me on my courteousness and service. I know that I have to stay on schedule, but I would never sacrifice the safety of others in order to achieve that. With that in mind, I still have yet to be late to a single destination, except when extremely inclement weather interfered.

I also put forth extra effort to be as kind and caring as possible when delivering. That’s why I maintain a professional and pleasant demeanor at every single residence or business I visit. I know that my behavior affects the receiving party’s view of the company I work for. I consider myself a representative of this company and behave accordingly, even when I’m off the clock.

I take pride in my job and it’s always nice to see the smiling, faces of those waiting to be serviced. For every happy customer who has a pleasant exchange with me and receives service on time. – less

Lacking and unclean workplace with no public restrooms.
Part-Time Receptionist (Former Employee), Jackson, MSMay 16, 2012
Pros: pay checks always arrived on time, and free office supplies, minor health insurance
Cons: lack of public restrooms, unclean working space, unconcerned employees.
The plant I worked part time at was a rather dismal atmosphere that was, to say the least, falling apart. It had no working public restrooms, only a port-a-john. The office area was often unclean despite my efforts to keep it organized due to paper dust and unruly employees. It was not the safest atmosphere in relation to it's location and the employees – more... that worked there. – less

Health and safety (Former Employee), Greece, ThessalonikiFebruary 8, 2014
Pros: knowledge gained
Cons: not get paid
In this job I've worked on every field. I managed to learn how to weight trucks as well as how to work in safety.
I specialized on finding new clients and provide them our products in the best prices that we could.
The hardest part of the job was the responsibility needed for my position and the ability to work and cooperate with many different people.
The – more... part that i enjoyed the most was while trying to teach the employees the importance of health and safety while working in an environment such as a recycle factory. – less
