An organization where one learns many tools and traits to be successful anywere.
Pros: Extreme growth in professional and personal traits
Cons: Very long hours and much expectations
On a daily basis I was responsible for over sight of a number of employees from 10-30. Later I was placed in charge of ensuring 287 individuals were on track for promotions by scheduling them for any courses that were needed and coordinating with their management when they needed to attend. During this time I was also held accountable for millions in gear and equipment.
After this position I was placed in Phoenix, AZ in the public eye and held an even greater responsibility not only being trusted with government vehicles, computers and phones, but to ensure that at all times I maintained a professional mindset and appearance as to not tarnish the organization that I represented. I did all this and then was placed as the assistant manager in my office to help coordinate and manage the success of our organization and did so with 100% satisfaction. Later I was recognized for outstanding performance and given awards on several occasions for devotion, character and personal sacrifice to my duty. The hardest part of this time was overcoming many public disinterest and still maintaining a positive mindset and continuing to push forward with a smile all the while making sure other employees were given a positive work environment as well. The most enjoyable aspects was knowing that I was able to give to the community and to individuals something that would last a lifetime and help them gain tools and opportunities to become successful in life. From this I have learned a significant amount in public relations, how to communicate very effectively, and understanding what it takes and how much more effective a work environment is when your employees trust you and are happier to be at work from your enthusiastic positive re-enforcement towards success.
