Enjoyable Assignment
Document Control Specialist (Former Employee), New Orleans, LAApril 20, 2015
Pros: Bonuses
Cons: When the assignment ended
A typical day at work was working with the project manager and designers. What I learned management was very open minded when it came to feedback on the project. All of the co-workers worked well together. The most enjoyable part of the job was when the project to the support staff out to lunch and dinner after every milestone.

I helped a hot cutover team at the Chevron Refinery with my administrative skills.
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Pascagoula, MSJanuary 30, 2014
Pros: everything!!! i loved it!!!
Cons: leaving the job. it was a good thing when the project was completed, especially without incident, but it ended and i was laid off.
A typical day was intense and fun.
I learned a to have a lot of patience and to take it slow and easy in order to make good decisions where there is sence of potential danger. In an industrial setting one must think safety at all times.
I loved my managers, especially my project manager we are still friends. We stay in touch through Facebook and we have each others contact numbers. She will also give a reference for me if you need one.
My co-workers were very sweet and incredibly smart. I shared an office with two engineers. I loved it! They are a lot of fun.
The hardest part of the job.. The job was not hard at all.
The most enjoyable part was the meetings. They were huge, up to 30 people at a time all with diverse backgrounds.
