Lawn Care Worker (Former Employee) – Irving Texas – August 2, 2015
Yard maintenance for commercial and industrial companies. Hardest part of the job was for sure getting used to the heat every day. The most enjoyable part of the job was the people, they were always positive and had each others backs.
POLICE OFFICER ASSISTANT, Internship (Former Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – July 9, 2014
My internship that helped me learn some criminal justice disciplines including but not limited to basic police patrols of University hospital, filing reports with DCJS(Department of Criminal Justice Systems), etc. Intern "colleagues" always helped me out and a joy to work with. Getting up at 6 am was tough for the job but that's the real world and I enjoyed what I got out of it.
LIFEGUARD (Former Employee) – New York, NY – May 9, 2014
It seemed like a great idea to sit around a pool all day and get paid for it. While I worked, I helped maintain the pool, assisted citizens, rescued those who were drowning/hurt, and provided first aid. I kept the pool as safe place to cool off in the summer heat. The co-workers were great and we became this tight knit group. The hardest part of the job was the hours. 7 days a week, 8 hours a day (sometimes more) in the hot sun. It really drained me to the point that I had no energy to do anything after shift. The best part was the relaxed nature of job. We were all prepared to jump when people needed us, but when everyone was fine we were basically paid to tan.
Got to work with children and was able to teach and coach.
Camp Counselor (Former Employee) – Carnesville, Ga – October 4, 2013
I oversaw planned games and activities for groups of children of around 30. I also planned field trips to the atlanta zoo, several petting zoos as well as other engaging destinations. Working with children is something near to my heart, and I believe it is where my true calling is.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Larkspur, CO – August 9, 2012
I woke up at the buttcrack of dawn, walked up 3 hills and proceeded to set up my table. I had to take inventory everyday, and we got some breaks when there weren't rushes. I learned good social/people skills and how to smile all day. The management was okay, I didn't really like him, but it's not like I was there for him. My co-workers are my friends 'til this day, all amazing people. the hardest part of the job was keeping the merchandise dry when it rained and making sure people weren't walking off with things. Camping afterward, not having to drive all the way back home every night.
Senior Counselor (Current Employee) – Boston, MA – May 18, 2012
A typical day at work with the kids consist of something different every day. We usually travel to activities which means we get on the T. It is a process of learning over the years how to manage a big group and have to care for their safety as well. My fellow co-workers help out as well, we all have to work together in order for it to be a successful camp. I've learned how to become a natural for the safety of all of the children as well as myself. The hardest part of the day is all of the physical activity throughout the camp, but it's well worth it because the best part of the job for me IS THE KIDS.
Landscaping and Painting (Former Employee) – North Chicago, IL – April 16, 2012
A typical work day consist of landscaping, painting, or cleaning. I learned how to plant and paint different things. Management kept us busy eventually I was moved up to a overseer of duties. My co-workers were different but hard workers. The hardest part of the job was meeting the standard deadlines for duties, but they were always meet. The most enjoyable part was being witnesses to our own hard work.
