Surveyor (Former Employee), New Orleans, LA – April 18, 2014
Pros: 15 minute paid break every hour
Cons: not enough hours, and the job was only 1 1/2 months long.
A typical day at this job was to go in a classroom everyday for 3-4 hours, and call residents back to back that lived in New Orleans during hurricane Katrina and try to see if they will take a survey, type all the answers to the questions I asked, and memorize answers to the typical questions most residents ask before they take a survey. I learned how – more... aggravating surveyors must be, but also how to conduct and analyze a survey. My manager stood in front of the classroom and was there everyday incase anyone needed help. The hardest part was trying to get the resident to finish the survey because they take about 30 minutes to complete and a lot of people hang up half way through it. The most enjoyable part was getting a resident to actually complete the entire survey. – less

Desk Assistant (Current Employee), New Orleans, LA – April 20, 2013
Pros: learnt how to shelf the books.
Cons: it was a hard job. shelving was difficult.
I was a library student worker at the Earl K. Long Library. My main work was to help the library users help to find them with the books they were looking for. If they had a proper code for the book, I would go to the shelf and find it. If not I would look for the code, and help them. Also, I shelved the books according to the standard shelving criteria – more... of the library. – less
