Machine Builder (Former Employee), Greensburg, PA – September 23, 2014
Pros: gained work experience.
Cons: driving distance.
I learned bolt sizes and different types of electrica and pipe fittings. Also I had the opportunity to be part of a team that made machnes for China to polished inside of hollow devices.

Pros: incentives, such as free coffee and snacks
Cons: desired more opportunity to be hired on a permanent basis
My typical day statrted out, being assigned to a particular work space and area for the day. My duties included inspecting merchandise, printing out shipping labels, picking and assembling the correct shipping container and cleaning my work space.

I realize the importance – more... of providing cinsumers with correct and undamaged merchandise...shipped in a timeley manor. Despite the physical demands of the job, i enjoy working in a fast paced environment. – less

Working for Spherion helped me get my foot in the door to Tech Data which is the second largest distributor for computer products and peripherals in the world.

Being able to learn the latest and the greatest in the industry – more... was my favorite part of being a part of Tech Data. The hardest part was being of service to such a huge customer base; however, it was a thrill to be a part of it all. – less
Warehouse Associate (Former Employee), Elizabethtown, KY – September 9, 2014

Receptionist (Current Employee), Port St. Lucie, Florida – September 4, 2014
Pros: the people i work with
Cons: not full time, no benefits, no advancement
I think that they are good, but they seem to place you into a position and then don't check in to see how things are going. I am in need of full time employment and have left several messages requesting any potential opportunities and do not get responses. I am grateful to be working the 2 days and sometimes 3 days that I get a week but really need – more... more preferably with benefits, growth potential and a retirement plan. The position I have now is as a front desk receptionist in a new community, it is during the off season and the office is very "slow" right now. There is not a lot to do and sometimes we do not have any clients at all come through the door. My co-workers here are really wonderful people and I enjoy working with them. The management is relaxed and easy to talk to, very understanding and encouraging. The hardest part of the job is not having anything to do, it gets boring and I would like more responsibility. The most enjoyable part of the job is getting to meet new people and working in a beautiful environment. – less
