Productive place to work
Short Term Worker (Former Employee) –  Dowagiac, MIMay 14, 2017
Very high paced and a lot of information to learn. I learned skills to better multitask and to keep documents in order. The hardest part of the job was looking for information in different binders, because not every situation was the same for every customer. The most enjoyable part was the schedule and having time to spend with my family.
