I absolutely loved this job. Too bad it was a temporary assignment. From the day I walked in, I was welcomed with open arms; and my coworkers and the Director was just great! The pay was GREAT, the work atmosphere was a tad bit stressful dealing with payroll and having certain deadlines to meet. But when we were able to unwind a little bit out boss – more... made us feel appreciated, and so did the company. We always had something going on to celebrate the different festivities for that month. I've never experienced anything like it before. Great place to work! – less
