Results oriented company with little interest in advanced training or advancement
Pros: company car provided
Cons: travel, detail assignments for a month duration away from home
I truly enjoyed this job. I basically was on my own, from scheduling, interviewing, record searching, investigating, reporting, etc. There was little interaction with team leads or management, unless numbers were low. Although it was a very critical and detailed job, time pressures and work overload was common. I did well, as I am an excellent time – more... manager, very detailed oriented and usually only make a mistake once and never again.
The hardest part of the job was travel. In the area I lived it was not uncommon to drive 2 or 3 hours for an interview. Although I was still held to the same production (cases completed) standards as someone with a much smaller territory.
What I enjoyed the most was meeting a wide range of individuals. I also felt I was making a different, as most of my work involved in-depth background investigations for top level security clearances. – less
